Charming Design at the Berlin Zoo

Who knew the Berlin Zoo is full of interesting sculpture and design? I’m here in Berlin for spring break. Here are just a few of the gems I saw at this incredible zoo.

The giraffe house has Moorish arches, spires, and tile.

Wrought metal roosters on the hen house fence. I love the spiral eye.

The hen house looks like a real house! Designed around 1905.

The zoo has a big playground for kids. This crazy swing set is designed so the kids can’t collide in the center (but they will try!).

Hope you are having a great spring!

Enjoy!
