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.

The aquarium was under construction so you can't enter it from the zoo. We bought tickets ahead of time. It was warm. Nice little selection of aquatic animals and snakes. Some sharks, fish, jelly fish, sea horses, sting rays, eels, and lizards. There is seating throughout.

The Berlin Aquarium is a hidden gem within the city and a fantastic complement to the Berlin Zoo. It offers a captivating underwater world filled with a diverse array of marine life. The highlight is the stunning cylindrical tank in the center, which hosts a mesmerizing display of colorful fish and other aquatic species. The aquarium's layout is well-designed, allowing visitors to explore a variety of ecosystems, from coral reefs to freshwater habitats. One of the standout features is the jellyfish exhibit, which is beautifully lit and almost otherworldly. The aquarium also has a strong focus on conservation and education, with informative displays about the importance of preserving our oceans. It's a great place for families and individuals alike, offering an educational and awe-inspiring experience. The only downside might be the ticket prices and occasional crowds, but the overall visit is well worth it for anyone with an interest in marine life.

Nice aquarium with a good variety of fish. The aquarium isn’t that big but you could spend a good hour looking around. It was quite busy when we visited so had to wait our turn to see some of the tanks. The student ticket is a very good price!

It was a thrilled and also disappointing experience. My almost 4 year old really enjoyed. It could have been more helpful, if they had a direction how the aquarium need to be visited. You need to come out of the zoo through the shop and the you have a separate entrance

Very nice atmosphere, a lot to see, one of the best ones worldwide in my opinion. One star less because €20 entrance for adults only for the aquarium is in my opinion too expensive. Tickets not available at the entrance, you need to buy at main Zoo entrance (about 100 m to the left).
