The Zoological Garden already makes clear through its main entrance, the Elephant Gate, which was built in 1899, that it is an unique place to see. First opened to the public in 1844, the Berlin Zoo was built upon a gift bestowed to the city by King Friedrich Wilhelm IV. It is Germany’s oldest zoo with its collection of round 16.000 animals including a predator, a hippo and a nocturnal animal house as well as the largest aviary located in Europe. The zoo has two entrances, one is situated at the Hardenbergerplatz and the other entrance, at the Budapester Strasse.
