Zoo Berlin, its affiliated Aquarium Berlin, and Tierpark Berlin in the district of Friedrichsfelde together make up Zoologischer Garten Berlin AG – the largest zoo operation in Europe. Alongside its notable achievements in conservation, Zoo Berlin is famous for having the largest number of species of any zoo in the world. Home to 25,187 animals across 2,000 species, Zoo Berlin is a constant hive of activity and contributes to two thirds of all European breeding programmes. The impressive statistics don’t end there: the zoo and its facilities cover an area of 190 hectares, more than 500 people work at Zoo and Tierpark Berlin, and some 4.5 million people visit us each year. These are figures that attract the attention not only of the international zoological community, but also of policymakers and urban society.

A number of refurbishment projects are currently underway or about to begin. The goal is to further develop Berlin’s zoos over the coming years in line with our master plans to ensure they remain modern and pioneering zoological institutions that continue to set international standards.
