Late autumn has shown itself from its best side and still does. Filling up on fresh air, energy and vitamin D is especially important for our immune system now, so head for the spacious and beautiful Parks & Gardens in Berlin. Or take a walk in the outdoor areas of the zoo, animal park and botanical garden. They are still open for you. It's best to check the website of the respective provider in advance to find out about their opening hours. Enjoy the time!

Please show responsibility, wear your masks and follow the hygiene rules of the organizers. Only with your support will Berlin - by far - remain the best!

Tip 1: Botanical Garden

Walking through forests and meadows and from the Alps to the Caucasus in just a few minutes, that's what a trip to the botanical garden promises. However, the tropical houses are currently closed, as is the Humboldt exhibition. Please reserve your tickets online.

Visit the pandas at Berlin Zoo again. The Panda Garden and playgrounds are still open, as are the outdoor enclosures and grounds. Some cafés and restaurants offer food and drinks "to go". Please keep to the rules of hygiene and distance and wear a mask. Even though the aquarium and animal houses will remain closed, almost 20,000 animals from almost 1,200 species are still waiting for you in the extensive 33-hectare park.

Or take advantage of the extensive grounds of the Tierpark Berlin for an animal-friendly walk. Here too, many animals await you outside, as the animal houses are closed. Maybe you can take a look at the new offspring in the zoo: In July a Sneaky Cat baby was born there and in October a kangaroo was born, which is called Sissi.
For your information: The "Christmas at the Zoo" festival of lights will be cancelled.

As a former manor house, Domäne Dahlem today looks back on a history of over 800 years. Here you can directly experience the development of food from the field to the plate and from the pasture to the shopping bag. Unfortunately, the indoor museums are closed at the moment and guided tours and workshops are also cancelled in November. But you can still go for a walk on the beautiful estate and it is definitely worth it!
