Those who know the Berlin Zoo already and want to combine a visit to the zoo with a weekend-trip into the countryside are perfectly right in the Zoo Eberswalde. The small zoo is located very idyllic about 50 km northeast of Berlin amidst the Barnim nature sanctuary Nonnenfließ - Schwärztal in a mixed forest landscape. Here you can experience 1.500 animals in near-natural enclosures all year long.
You won’t get to see large animals such as elephants, rhinos and giraffes here, but the zoo offers many beautiful viewing platforms and observation points from where visitors can watch tigers, lions, buffaloes, llamas and different species of monkeys.
The zoo is a popular destination especially for families with children as you get more or less automatically past five completely different adventure and playground themes while walking the paths between the animal enclosures. For instance there is a Glacier's playground including an air path. Mainly in holidays, the zoo school offers supervised adventure holidays and exciting action days. Beautiful Zoo Festivals take place seasonally.
Special highlights are the animal feedings such as the otter feeding, penguin feeding or parrot feeding in the jungle house. In conclusion, the Zoo Eberswalde is a beautiful destination for the whole family.
