Tierpark Berlin Strategic development plan

The partly outdated animal enclosures, competition from Berlin Zoological Garden and an uncertain economic climate continue to pose a number of challenges for Tierpark Berlin, making a strategic repositioning necessary.
Tierpark is to remain intact as a landscape park. Geographical zoning makes the journey around the world possible. In the future, visitors will enjoy a rich diversity of vegetation and be able to observe the animals in natural habitats. The link between nature and animals will benefit from an understated architectural design of the facilities, which will also contribute to the appearance of each immersive environment. Tierpark’s highlights will include Europe’s largest walk-in aviary with a treetop path; the Amazonas building for jaguars, sloths and manatees; the Himalayas, constructed from excess rubble; and a species conservation centre with a veterinary clinic enclosed in glass, created in partnership with the Leibniz-Institut für Zoo- und Wildtierforschung (IZW). The plan could become reality by 2030. We are currently working on the design of the first project: a tropical jungle world inside the Alfred Brehm Haus.
