Frequently asked questions
What is a sponsorship?
A sponsorship is a donation that supports the daily work of Zoo Berlin / Aquarium Berlin / Tierpark Berlin and helps ensure the wellbeing of the animals. As a thank you for their support, sponsors receive a certificate of sponsorship and are invited once a year to an exclusive summer sponsors’ evening. In addition, all sponsors are kept up to date with news from the Zoo, Aquarium and Tierpark with the biannual ZooMomente magazine for friends and supporters.
How long does a sponsorship last?
An animal or tree sponsorship automatically ends after one year, while all bench sponsorships have a duration of five years. Sponsorships can be renewed at any time. You will receive a reminder shortly before your sponsorship expires.
You can also save yourself the time of manually renewing your sponsorship by setting up a standing order. This effectively makes your sponsorship unlimited until you choose to end it.
Which animals can be sponsored?
In principle, any species can be sponsored. Only the “celebrities” like the gorillas, rhinos, elephants, etc. are limited to one sponsor each.
Can I sponsor one specific animal?
Generally, a sponsorship applies to an entire species. Exclusive sponsorships for individual animals are available for some of the larger inhabitants as part of a premium sponsorship.
How can I give a sponsorship as a gift?
How do I receive my sponsorship certificate?
Will my name be displayed next to the habitat of my sponsored animal(s)?
Only premium sponsorships include a special thank you displayed next to the sponsored animals’ habitat. A special thank you is only displayed next to the sponsored animals’ habitat for sponsorships of €500 or more per year.
Am I granted free entry to the Aquarium as a sponsor or donor?
Sponsorships and donations are intended to benefit the animals and help with the maintenance of the grounds. Therefore, sponsors and donors do not receive free admission, as this would greatly reduce the impact of the financial support provided.
Are donations and sponsorship payments tax deductible?
Yes, all donations made to Aquarium Berlin are tax deductible.
When do I receive my donation receipt?
For one-off donations of up to €300, you do not need a donation receipt; up to this amount, German tax offices accept the cash deposit slip or transfer confirmation from your bank as proof of the donation. For donations of €300 or more, a donation receipt will automatically be sent to you by post in the spring of the following year. Receipts cannot be sent via email.
Please note that donation receipts can only be issued in the name of the account holder.
- A personalised sponsorship certificate and two issues of the supporters’ magazine ZooMomente
- An invitation to our exclusive summer sponsors’ evening
- A donation receipt, which you will receive at the beginning of the next calendar year and which is tax deductible

From ants to spectacled caimans, there are animals in almost every size, weight and price category just waiting for a sponsor.
