The world’s largest number of species right in the middle of Germany’s capital city? That’s right! A green lung pulsates right in the heart of former West Berlin. Covering over 320 acres, this is Europe’s largest landscaped zoo. Big cats, elephants, rhinoceroses, sea cows, giraffes, monkeys and snakes have called this patch their home since the mid 19th century. Nearly 12,000 animals died here during WWII bombing raids. The zoo was completely destroyed. It was re-built during the post war years. Today, it showcases the most modern principles of welfare for animals in captivity. Knut the polar bear cub caused a world-wide media frenzy in 2006. Rejected by his mother, he was successfully raised by zookeepers. The cute fluffy creature sparked a surge in cuddly polar bear toys and his beady eyes adorned the front pages of this world.
