Further measures:

  • The animal houses and the Bionicum are closed

  • There are no hand-carts for kids.
  • The playgrounds are open following basic social distancing rules (1.5 m apart)
  • Culinary establishments will be open.
  • One entry with routing and distance marks.
  • Entrance gate with two seperate access points:
    Entry on the left for ticket holders: online tickets, season tickets, and vouchers. Please follow the green line, this will lead you directly to the ticket check at the main entrance
    Entry on the right: for the purchase of day tickets and season tickets
  • Due to the routing in the entrance area (one-way without collision traffic) it isn't possible to buy tickets for other people who are still outside or have not arrived yet.


An urgent appeal to you:
Please follow all the general social distancing and hygiene rules during your visit in the Tiergarten!

Note for season ticket owners:
Due to the closing of the Tiergarten, the validity of your season ticket will be extended for the same amount of time as the Tiergarten was closed.

If your ticket ran out while the Tiergarten was closed a partial extension will be applied.
The exact time of validity of your season ticket can be checked on location by our ticket controllers.
