Zoo by new

Some twenty years after the re-unification of Germany in general and particularly Berlin, some common insight has emerged. That is, while former East Berlin is flouring and full of shiny new buildings, the formerly famous Kudamm and Zoo area (aka the “City West”) had gathered some dust.

Therefore, since a couple of years, a lot of post-war (Wirtschaftswunder) buildings have been sloped and replaced with more contemporary ones, and the process is still ongoing. The bigger picture is sometimes also referred to as “der neue Zoo” (“the new Zoo”).
