Gutentag meine Zoofreunde! This year I will again embark on a zoo trip to germany, and this year, it will be all about the Berlin zoos! My last travel thread turned out as quite a disaster, but I hope this one won't. The Berlin zoos are among the most beloved and most critised of all zoos discussed on Zoochat. After reading lots and lots of discussion about the zoos here, I finally decided to visit the two zoos highest on my must see list: Tierpark Berlin and Zoo Berlin, on my own. The whole trip will take 5 days, 6 if I include the warming up (visiting Burgers' Zoo one day prior to the Berlin trip) in July this year. The first day will probably be mostly traveling, but I'll squeeze in one zoo on our way toward Berlin (probably Magdeburg). Then, there well be 3 full days in either the Tierpark, the Zoo or the Zoo Aquarium. The morning and part of the afternoon of the 5th day will still be visiting one of the Berlin zoos (probably the Aquarium), after which we will travel home. The evenings are completely unplanned, so I'm open to suggestions. A second (smaller) trip this year will go to a German birding spot: Zwillibrocker Venn, known for it's huge gull colonies and of course, flamingoes. There's a slim chance I'll be making to Walsrode again this summer, in that case the day at Zwillibrocker will be part of that trip. This and any other zoo trips planned this year in Germany will be discussed in this thread too. Any tips on animals or enclosures in Berlin I shouldn't miss are of course welcome!
