Even after ninety years the most significant show aquarium in Germany is still a Mecca of biodiversity and history for aquarium and terrarium fans.

Since it opened its doors for the very first time the three storeys of Zoo-Aquarium have been presenting a section through the classes of fish, lower animals, reptiles, amphibians, and articulates around its heart, the Crocodile Hall, at that time the world's first walk-in animal enclosure for visitors.

Number of animals and species

With the largest number of species of its kind this building provides terrariums and aquariums for over 9,000 animals of almost 800 species. Today everyone talks about biodiversity. Here at Zoo-Aquarium you can experience it.

Good attraction

Very attractive place especially for children. It has a high educational value and is especially attractive when the weather outside is poor.

We planned morning visit to zoo and aquarium, and we were at 9 at the gates. Fortunately we started with aquarium because all the animals weren't up yet, and it was great decision. Not as big as Barcelona's aquarium, but not any less good- great selection of fish, reptiles and insects.

We booked an arrangement together with the zoo. It was a great addition to our day and yes, it has a LOT of fishes. Not a Fish fan myself I only enjoyed the sharks and the insects. Would not be enthusiastic when this was my sole purpose to go too as I would be done very quick.

The aquarium has really a lot of water animals and snakes to show. There are no empty tanks, like it happens sometimes in other places. I've seen quite some aquariums around the world, except from the one in Sydney, thats absolutely unbeatable, this one is one of the best.

The aquarium is definitely not worth the price. Its small, boring and not very well put together in terms of the way you walk around. Coming from Denmark and having been to Kattegatcentret, this is a waste of time and money!!

This is a big and nice aquarium. It has lots of fishes: from very small to quite big. The jellyfish collection is very impressive, there are a few aquariums full of these strange creatures. On the upper floor you can find terrarium with snakes, frogs and spiders. The display of leaf carrying ants is very creative: it starts on one... More

Just 5€ more if you by ticket both zoo and aquarium so it's quite worthy. The aquarium is not so big but separate by 3 floor with different storeys. Arrangement is very convenient for visitors

Staying in Charlottenburg

Neighbourhood Profile
Charlottenburg
Breathe in Berlin’s royal past while walking through the gardens of beautiful Charlottenburg Palace, which lends its name to this well-heeled neighbourhood. Here you'll find some of the oldest homes in the city: upper-class apartment buildings with ornate facades and marble-floored foyers line the cobblestone streets. Stroll by sophisticated restaurants, through little parks, or around Lake Lietzensee. Window shop down Kurfürstendamm, the most renowned high-end shopping street in Berlin, where you can find all the big designer names. In the evening, visit one of the old theatres close by Zoo Station which were nightlife hot spots in the 1920s, or dine in one of the many international restaurants around Savignyplatz before heading to other parts of town for a night out.
