Oldest Zoo in Germany


Berlin Zoo, It’s the oldest zoo in Germany – but totally modern. The Zoo Berlin and the Aquarium Berlin are a highlight for all the family. Recently i visited Berlin Zoo and I felt its worth sharing with wide audience. One of the things I love about this zoo is the architecture of the animal houses. Chickens get half timbers, bison get totem poles and giraffes get minarets. Isn’t it cute?

Berlin Zoo is the most biodiverse zoo in the world and at the same time the oldest zoo in Germany, opened in 1844. More than 20,000 animals in over 1,500 forms live in the green oasis in the heart of Berlin.

Zoos are places where wild animals are kept for public display. The term ‘ZOO’ stands short for zoological park or zoological garden, and can also be named animal park or menagerie.

Zoos contain wide varieties of animals that are native to all parts of the Earth.Zoos are often the sites of sophisticated breeding centers, where endangered species may be protected and studied. Some zoos, like this aquarium in Monterey,

Zoos are places where you can spend a quality afternoon with your family and friends admiring the beauties and diversities mother nature has given us. On the more technical aspect, a zoo is a facility that houses animals within enclosures, displays them to the public and it’s a place where the animals are bred.

Zoo parks are fun and entertaining places to spend time at. However, ordinary visitors must start thinking about how humanity affects nature and how can they contribute to saving the planet. The zoos offer a lot of information on the concrete steps to take so that the wonders we see and love in these types of facilities aren’t going to disappear in the wild.

Aquarium Berlin in the heart of Berlin is one of Europe’s best-known and most notable aquariums. Behind the building’s historic façade awaits an impressive diversity of species that few facilities in the world can rival.  The aquarium was built in 1913 as part of the Zoologischer Garten complex. In addition to fish and other aquatic life, it is home to most of the zoo’s reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates.

I walked around and saw sea lions, seals, hippos and penguins while the others went to the aquarium. Each year, millions of visitors of all ages come to Zoo Berlin for a delightful day out – with family, with friends, or alone.  Zoo Berlin is the perfect place to take the kids for a short getaway – any day of the year!
