The famous Aquarium of the Berlin Zoo

It is possible to visit the Aquarium separately from the Zoo. In this case you pay a reduced fee. The building itself is interesting with stained glass on the staircases and open Koi ponds. You would think that an aquarium only has fish tanks available but here they have a special collection of plants, amphibians and reptiles. We are not such fans of giant snakes but they are available on the first floor next to the interior tropical garden that houses small size crocodiles.

De Zoo van Berlijn biedt gasten de mogelijkheid het Aquarium te bezoeken los van de rest van de dierentuin. Je betaalt dan een gereduceerde prijs. Het gebouw zelf is zeer interessant met een siertrap waarlangs brandglas is verwerkt. Bij de ingang is er ook een open Kooi vijvertje. Men denkt dat een Aquarium enkel vistanks tentoonstelt maar hier in Berlijn, heeft men ook een grote collectie planten, amfibieën en reptielen. We zijn geen fans van reusachtige slangen maar ze hebben ze hier beschikbaar op hetzelfde verdiep als de tropische binnentuin, het leefterrein van kleine krokodillen..

  5. This is so cool and I'm so happy to see the first photo! He's still there! I never got to actually visit here, but I have photos of my family members that have been there, actually before I was even born. I posted a few of them in one of my Sepia Saturday posts....quite a while back. I just know you both had fun there. My mother always said that America doesn't have any idea what a zoo is, but in Europe, especially Germany they do!

  10. LOOKS like an awesome spot, and I can tell that my grandson would love it. Anyplace with a dinosaur is his "cup of tea". Love your jelly fish! When i was in chicago last time, they had a jelly display. They are so amazing, and available in such diverse colors and shapes. Lovely shots!
