Berlin has a natural wild side – a fascinating parallel world of wildlife wonders great and small, right on the doorstep. For every human inhabitant of Berlin there are at least two birds, and nowhere else are so many sparrows and nightingales to be found as in Germany’s capital.

Swarms of bees harvest the honey from the city’s almost half a million trees, while badgers can be found scurrying across courtyards and praying mantises await their prey in strips of railway land. The metropolis of Berlin is an urban jungle, providing a habitat for thousands of racoons, foxes, bats, squirrels, hedgehogs and beavers – Berlin is wild in more ways than one.
