And on Monday he was put out in a museum display case.
Born in Berlin Zoo in December 2006, Knut enjoyed worldwide fame and became a media darling.
After his mother rejected him he was kept alive by zookeepers feeding him with a bottle.
More than 11 million visitors saw Knut during his lifetime.

The museum hopes plenty more will now come through its doors for the exhibition, which includes a model coral reef and a stuffed baby gorilla.
"Our goal is to be the most exciting natural history museum in the world," said museum director Johannes Vogel.
