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.

It is a great zoo that is home to many species of animals such as elephants, penguins, zebras, seals, polar bears, crocodiles ... Combines and places with children activities and food. Caution! At the entrance you step inside. In the same area is different palaces that have another entrance tickets. The zoo is about 1 km away from the palaces.... More

The zoo is huge, is well organized and is great! Be there as earlier as possible in order to have plenty of time to spare. TIP: Don't miss the feeding time of the animals you like the most!

This is a great medium sized zoo that's a fun couple of hours and shouldn't be missed. Highlights are the pandas, elephants and bears. There are some huge bats in the tropical house. I thoroughly recommend doing this then popping over to the palace for a wander round.

It is the oldest zoo in the world and located in beautiful Schoenbrunn gardens. You should take at least 4 hours to see everything.

we will not visit a zoo in Vienna if it was not included in the package to the Palace but we did not regret it. Worth every minute as the zoo is very well taken care off and it is sufficiently housed the animals. Not the normal size zoo but just as good.

Wonderful selection of animals. Some I had never seen before. All very active and seemed happy. Had a nice lunch in the Orang.erie which as its name suggests was right by the orang utan enclosure. Being winter I was only able to find one other snack place open so need to bear this in mind when visiting. I had bought... More

Lovely zoo, but the only animals enjoying the December weather were the Penguins and Polar Bears. Pretty much most of the other animals were inside trying to keep warm :) The best thing were predicably the Pandas. Worth seeing even if they do just sit and eat bamboo, and look bored :)
