The tour starts from the McDonald’s opposite the main entrance to Zoo U-Bahn Station at 1000h (10:00am). Accompanied by a guide, you will embark on a walking tour to visit the following sites:

Our guide Michael was fantastic. There wasn't a boring minute through the whole walk. The walk lasted a little over 4 hours due to rain, but believe me we all wanted to... Sharon L Redmond
