Warm Up To Wildlife

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

The Ber­lin Zoo (p. 39) houses the most species of any zoo in the world. Even in cold tem­per­a­tures, you’ll spy a fair num­ber of ex­otic beasts, due to the zoo’s nu­mer­ous an­i­mal houses. In the pri­mate house, watch mon­keys and orang­utans swing from rope to rope, or pop over to peek at the go­ril­las to see just how close the great apes can be to us hu­mans. You may hear a lion roar in the car­ni­vore house, while down­stairs you can see the noc­tur­nal an­i­mals scurry about in dark­ness. Even the hip­pos have an in­door en­clo­sure, where the huge beasts swim sur­pris­ingly el­e­gantly through the wa­ter. On the other side of the zoo, the gi­ant-bird house show­cases dif­fer­ent breeds by con­ti­nent. Check the zoo web­site for feed­ing times to make your an­i­mal en­coun­ters even more ex­cit­ing. Tip: Catch a free peek of the play­ful mon­keys from the warm in­te­rior of the BIKINI BER­LIN mall (p. 28), which has views over­look­ing the zoo.
