Tho the aquarium is tiny you still get to see an impressive amount of different fish! Freshwater, saltwater, predators, insects and reptiles, jellyfish, plants and well known aquarium fish. The koi and goldfish was smartly placed and the kids lived it. The predator tanks should've...More

We went on a joint ticket wiht the zoo entry and theaquarium was great. I particularly loved the jelly fish. We didn't even realise there was an upstairs with reptiles and bugs so it would have been even better value than it already was

Lots of fish, reptiles, and bugs! My DD, age 5, really liked the insect floor. Great for a rainy day, of course. Clean bathrooms, which is always a plus. Their cafe is quite limited (i.e. not fruits or vegetables) so plan accordingly if you want...More

It was first time I have ever visited the aquarium so that I can´t compare it with anything. We were really surprised with extensive collection of exposed animals from whole of the rivers, seas and oceans. We recommend this attraction for families with children also...More

We had our Berlin welcome card so got a bit of a reduction in price that made it seem better. The fish looked very cramped in sometimes to small looking tanks but then I'm no expert. You do have two other floors with reptiles and...More

Kind of small compared to other aquariums I've visited, but still worth a visit. Admission to the aquarium is included in the price of admission for the Berlin Zoo, so definitely the price is right! Fish are on the first floor -- snakes & reptiles...More

Our favorite part of the Berlin zoo complex is the aquarium, by far. Three stories (there is an elevator) of not only fish, but also insects, amphibians, reptiles, etc. Clean facilities throughout as well as a small cafeteria for snacks.

Went in after touring the zoo for 4 hours, so feeling a bit tired, but was worth visiting! Plenty of species. Might get packed during busy hours so if you visit zoo also why not start here?

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.
