You can visit the Berlin Aquarium without seeing the Zoo, but if you buy a combination ticket, you can see both for significantly less than the price of individual tickets.
Built in 1913, it's one of the largest aquariums in Germany. The exhibits take up three floors with over 9000 animals covering 800 species. About 250 plant species integrated into the exhibits provide habitat for the animals and insects.
On the lower floor you will discover fish, coral reefs, jellyfish, seahorses, and the giant 260,000 litre Shark Tank containing blacktip reef sharks, hammerhead sharks and nurse sharks.
On the second level you will be intrigued by a large assortment of reptiles in Crocodile Hall. Besides crocodiles, you will discover a variety of turtles, caiman lizards, gharials, snakes and even butterflies.
The top level of the aquarium houses an insectarium featuring amphibians and insects including frogs, ants, tarantulas, and praying mantis.
Be sure to include a visit to this world-class aquarium in your travel itinerary.
