Owner description: Zoo Vienna, the oldest existing zoo in the world founded in 1752. Schonbrunn Zoo was voted Europe's best in 2008, 2010 and 2012. Schonbrunn Zoo is the perfect place for a journey into the fascinating world of the animal kingdom. Open year round, it combines the highlights of the natural world with an unparalleled history as the world's oldest and Europe's best zoo. It is part of Schonbrunn as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listed site and home to more than 700 species of animals. Marvel at the Giant pandas, tigers, orangutans, koalas and elephants, immerse yourself in the magic of the Amazon and feel the heat of a tropical rainforest in the heart of Europe. Moderated feeding sessions, guided tours and a trip aboard the panorama train turn a trip to the zoo into an unforgettable experience.

We visited the zoo on a cold December day. It was included in our "Winter Pass Plus" combi ticket. It was a week-day and there were not many people. It is an amazing zoo, definitely the best I've visited. It is not very big but you can see many kinds of animals, some of them rare. What impressed me was... More

Must visit while in Vienna. Great zoo and many animals to see. You can easily spend a lot of time watching different animal shows inside the zoo. Take a note of the timings of the shows displayed at the entrance and in the brochure. Take a combined pass of the palace and the zoo to save money.

Absolutely a MUST VISIT destination, if you have kids.I found it to be one of the most wonderfully laid out and well- maintained zoos, that I have ever visited.You can see all the big ticket animals, from pandas, polar bears, lions, elephants, giraffes, gorillas, rhinos, koalas etc. Although we didn't have time to see all the animals in the zoo,...

Walking through the palace gardens was a great way to enter. The zoo had a great selection of animals and it was the first time I had been to a zoo where you were inside the enclosure with the animals. We had bats flying around us and sloths walking above us. We saw so many different land and sea animals.... More

Being an animal lover, I've been to many zoo all over the world, and I would say this is the best I've been to. The animals are in excellent conditions, their enclosures were amazing. We got to see many of them close up, and the one amazed me the most, was the sloths. They were right there above your head!!!!!!!... More

Not a world-class zoo, but in a lovely setting. Intimate and wooded, and great for kids. Nice beer gardens throughout!

Any kind of animal that comes across your mind exists in Tiergarten zoo. The zoo is huge, it might take you more than 4 hours to walk around the whole place. My visit was in winter, most of the animals were inside heated houses but still great. I believe in summer would be even better. The missing part is feeding... More

My wife and I got the ticket to see the palace, gardens, zoo and 2 other attractions we didn't have time for. There is a lot to see. Just have your walking shoes on. Not all animals are out since it is cold. We were tired from all the walking outside before we got to the zoo. We both wanted... More
