  • Frequently asked questions

  • Why 2G?

    The coronavirus measures in place on our premises comply with the current requirements of the Berlin Senate.

  • Which rules apply to the torchlight tour?

    The 2G+ rules apply, which means that a negative rapid test result of the last 24 hours or a certificate of a booster vaccination is required for vaccinated/recovered people aged from 18.

  • Which rules apply for visiting the restaurants?

    The 2G+ rules apply, which means that a negative rapid test result of the last 24 hours or a certificate of a booster vaccination is required for vaccinated/recovered people aged from 18.

  • Are on-site ticket booths closed?

    A limited number of ticket booths selling day tickets are open for visitors with no internet access. However, this system will only continue to work in the current situation if no large queues form, so please do continue to book tickets online whenever possible.

  • Do I have to leave the Aquarium by the end oft he timeslot I have booked?

    In principle, we ask all our guests to stick to the time slot they have reserved. After all, the Aquarium will only be able to remain open in the current circumstances if everyone shows consideration towards one another and is willing to compromise. However, the different time slots are primarily intended to stagger visitor arrival times.

  • What if I already have a valid/complimentary ticket or a discount coupon?

    Online tickets, tickets purchased in advance (e.g. from BVG ticket machines), complimentary tickets and discount coupons can be presented at the ticket booths by the entrances (clearly marked) and allow immediate admission. In this instance, advance online registration is not necessary.

  • Do I need a time slot to purchase an annual pass?

    Please book your annual pass online. If you would like to visit Aquarium Berlin immediately after you have purchased or renewed your annual pass, please book a time slot as well.

  • Support

  • Why have ticket prices not been lowered?

    The coronavirus pandemic will continue to present us with many challenges for some time to come. Multiple closures mean important sources of income are lost, but we can’t shut down completely like some other industries; operations have to continue regardless. After all, the around 30,000 animals living in Berlin’s zoos must continue to be fed and looked after. In concrete terms, the total operating costs for Zoo, Tierpark and Aquarium Berlin amount to around €140,000 a day! As a result, we simply cannot afford to lower our ticket prices.

  • Is the Tierpark over the worst financially?

    Just a few days after the first closure, we already started receiving messages from people asking how they could lend their support. We have been overwhelmed by the expressions of support over the past weeks and months. Once again, thank you very much! However, the coronavirus pandemic will continue to present us with challenges for some time to come, as the strict precautions in place mean significantly lower visitor numbers – which results in financial losses for us every day.
