We visited the zoo straight after our visit to the Schonbrunn Palace. We took the tram to get to the zoo as it was quite a long walk. The tram was quite expensive but the weather was hot and so it was worthwhile. We really loved the zoo, especially seeing the Giant Pandas, the leopard and black panther. The bird... More

There was every type of animal imaginable here and it really is the biggest zoo I've visited. The on site restaurants were reasonably priced too, although the service was poor in one of the restaurants. There are lots of things o do an it makes for a fantastic full day out, for a reasonable price. Excellent things for kids to... More

The trip was an adventure for the children since we used the tram and underground to get there. Price of entry tickets relatively cheap. For those residing in Vienna, the yearly ticket might be worth it, if they re planning on visiting more than twice a year. Had a great day with kids. Many animals and attractions to see. Very...

When the kids started moaning about the number of old buildings in Vienna, we promised a trip to the zoo. It was one of our best days in the city, thanks to the easy layout, the flat walking and the pretty surroundings. But what stole the show was the baby elephant, trotting about his enclosure. There aren't many zoos where... More

As lovely as Giant Pandas are, the Red Pandas always steal it for me, draping their legs either side of a tree branch with a cute little grin as they snooze in the sun. It was huge, and very well staffed. Prices were a little high for toys and food but a lot of the profits went to conservation projects... More

Very enjoyable day out although it was a very hot day and some of the animals were staying indoors in the shade so we didn't see them. Thrill of our visit was the pandas and the swimming polar bear.

My young daughter baring with our adult visits to castles, and museums had her treat with a visit to the zoo. It was a great experience to all of us. It is seldom that as a visitor you can get so close to the animals by entering their dormitory or place of living. All across th zoo we felt very... More

large range of animals held in very good conditions old buildings nicely renovated, well maintained in winter, better start the visit early as a large part of the zoo ends up in the shade in the afternoon

Wonderful zoo with park like atmosphere. A nice mixture of old architecture and modern day zoo exhibitions. Certainly worth the visit, for us a good leisurely start of the summer vacation.
