Berlin is a great city to visit. There are ample activities for the whole family. The city is home to over 150 museums and 50 theaters, 3 major opera houses, and countless music festivals. It is a city rich in culture and history, and offers access to the area, serving as a travel and transport hub to Eastern Europe.
One important element of the city is the Berlin Zoological Garden. It is the oldest and most popular zoo in Germany attracting over 3 million visitors each year. It is home to around 14,000 animals. One of the most famous residents is Knut, a 3 year old Polar bear who was born at the Zoo in 2006. Whatever your stance on Zoo’s are, here’s a piece of advice everyone can take to heart. Do not jump into the polar bear habitat during feeding time. Someone actually did this recently. As you can imagine, it did not go over well. She was bitten and mauled several times before on lookers could pull her to safety. Thankfully, she’s okay, but faces trespassing charges.
With all there is to do in this great city, jumping into a polar bear habitat is probably not going to be found in any guide book. Whatever you decide to do on your next vacation in Germany, you can always turn to Auto Europe, for your car rental needs. Just remember to not feet the bears.
