Description: Zoo Vienna, the oldest existing zoo in the world founded in 1752...
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.

Lovely day out in Vienna with easy access

Great place for a day out. If you have young children you can rent little wagons for pulling them when little legs get tired.

I really enjoyed visiting this zoo. The animals are all in great habitats that allow visitors to see them without large cages in the way. They have a wide variety of animals and interactive experiences. You can watch them feed the animals and walk through the houses to see certain animals. The zoo is very easy to navigate through and... More

What I like most about the Vienna Zoo is the fact that animals get so much free space of their own. This makes one leave it with a sense of discovery and happiness, not like in other cities where you'd never want to come back or you leave feeling sorry for the poor animals. With the exception of the Orang-Utan,... More

I went for just the Panda, but they have so many other animals to see. I highly recommend going there for I think the 14.50 euro price.

Nicely renovated, original buildings of the Habsburg era. Animal collection is not really special, except pandas and coalas, but well arranged and clean. There is a small forest with paths and suspension bridges whee enjoyable walk can be taken. Zoo itself is not a unique experience but worth attending.

I was not necessarily looking forward to a day at a zoo, however I could not be more wrong. This is a wonderful zoo where the animals display natural behaviours (for example: polar bears play-fighting and playing as opposed to pacing I have seen in other zoos). The pandas are wonderful, the tigers were just inches away (fast asleep, it... More

I really liked the visit to this Zoo. The main reason I went there was to see the Pandas. What an experience it was, they are just adorable. Everything else for me was a plus. We also had a meal and really enjoyed it. There is always much to be said about the size of the enclosures and as always... More

Been there many times in the past 10 years with all my children and both enjoyed it. Pandas and Koalas are special here but the aquarium, the Polar Bear's place and the Penguins are fantastic also. Good location, easy to park ( have park and ride options near ). Admission fee is affordable, the park is clean, have places for... More

My Viennese sister-in-law kept telling me that we HAD to go to the zoo. I reluctantly gave in. My niece and nephew (9 and 12 at the time) easily navigated us to the zoo using public transit. The zoo was fantastic. Big, clean, and wonderful. When we stopped for a bite to eat, there were crystal chandeliers everywhere...only in Vienna.... More

Have now been to this Zoo on numerous occasions with both adults and children, It has never disappointed. The animals are humanly kept and all seem ok.

Staying in Hietzing

Neighborhood Profile
Hietzing
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
