Every Berliner says that the Zoo and aquarium are the best in Europe. My question is.. Are you kidding me ? This aquarium was so small. Just some kinds of fish. Barely 2 small sharks. I've seen so many better aquariums in Europe (Valencia, Athens...More

This can be visited separately or along with the zoo. Aquariums always give you the feeling that if you see one you have seen them all, however if you visit them, there is always something different and memorable. Berlin Aquarium is very good, with plenty...More

It is almost opened around the year. We have been there the 31 of December where most places are closed. Don’t expect a spectacular show, but it is most interesting in showing and explaining not only the sea live, but also the world of Insekts...More

I enjoyed the aquarium more than the Berlin zoo - the animal enclosures were not in as bad of condition and the size of the enclosures was what I have seen at other aquariums. I would recommend going to the zoo and aquarium together or...More

Visited during a trip to the zoo. Was a little underwhelmed. Nothing of note that stands out really. Wouldn't recommend visiting just the aquarium. A quick 20 min walk round as part of the zoo trip is all you need.

Small but jam packed with fish and sea life. Go upstairs to see reptiles etc. Paid 39 Euro for 2 adults and 1 child. Very busy. Advised to put your jacket in the cloakroom if it is open as it gets quite hot inside.

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

I guess you are ok - there are three levels, the fish at the basement level and smaller insects at the upper level. There are stairs between the levels, but I would not speak of heights... Still, it's a personal experience.

And you have to use the inner entrance between them. For example, if you are in the zoo and want to go the aquarium, you can't leave the zoo to go to the aquarium - use special entrance located inside the zoo. And vice versa.
