Berlin Zoo will receive two Great Pandas in June. 

At the moment, the zoo has no pandas - the only ones they had died in 2007 and 2012.

The agreement for the loan of a panda couple was agreed between Germany and China, and the two animals will move into a new pen which has already been built. 

China loans out its pandas for a strict fee every year - the Dutch pay roughly one million euros a year to maintain their animals. 

The Berlin Zoo has not commented on what they will pay.
