The wonders of Berlin
Berlin is a city of infinite variety, with hundreds of impressive landmarks, from the Reichstag to the Berlin Wall. See the city from above by ascending the space-age TV Tower at Alexanderplatz, or take a boat trip down the River Spree or one of Berlin's tranquil canals. Museum Island is home to an array of antiquities, from the preserved Greek temple at the Pergamon Museum to the Egyptian artefacts at the Neues Museum. Families with young children will not be disappointed. Kollwitzplatz in Prenzlauer Berg is home to one of the biggest and best playgrounds in town. The sprawling Tiergarten park is another great outdoor option, while the Zoological Garden adjacent to the park is a long-standing hit with families seeking an exciting and educational day out.
Berlin Zoological Garden is known for its wide array of beautiful and rare species, many of which can only be seen in this particular zoo. Among the endangered species cared for here are red pandas, oragutans and okapis. As well as encountering the zoo's animals, visitors can watch exciting shows and feeding sessions, with the harbour seals being the star performers. For rest-stops and refreshment, visitors will find multiple restaurants, picnic areas and a well-stocked shop. Enjoy more animal encounters with a visit to the excellent Aquarium next door.
