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.

Almost all the animals you can think of including amazing jellyfish and giant stick insects. It felt very clean and there were no bad smells. They were still not finished building the giraffe area when we were there that was the only negative. Also a bush walk on hanging bridges under the tree tops. Make sure that you have a... More

The Tiergartern/Zoo in Vienna is one of the best I have been to. The animals here are so well cared for as well as the grounds are well kept. There are plenty of animals to see and even for 3 young college students this place was a lot of fun and we can't wait to return. Easily spent the entire... More

The animals are well cared for, look healthy and they have young elephants! There is a large concentration on refreshments. People appear to spend the day there viewing the animals, eating and enjoying the outdoors. The displays are varied ranging from reptiles, to large animals, to butterflies and birds.

Went to see the Pandas and koalas which were both great. The zoo has an older feel with traditional buildings between larger newer enclosures. When visited the new Giraffe house was under construction. Food and drink reasonable and much cheaper entry than other European zoos visited. Great fun for kids.

There is a lot to see and there's always something next to where you are. A lot of different animals, hard to imagine something you don't find there. Especially nice that there is a guarantee to see all the animals, since there is a view to the cages from the outside as well as from the inside. Enough restaurants, bars... More

with a low yearly ticket the zoo of Scoenbrunn has given us the opportunity to bring the kids around nearly every weekend. Every month they have a different and exciting workshop for the kids, such delightful atmosphere will boost your kid's creative spirit.

The zoo is an amazing zoo with so much to do. It's only 12 euro in making it very reasonably priced. The animals seemed very happy.

The oldest zoo in the world, but not the most interesting. Relatively small and some odd enclosures that struggle to accommodate the crowds.

Great location next to Schönbrunn, some exotic animals not found very common (giant pandas - always with their back to you as they don't like flash photography, cute koalas) in Zoos. Good presentation, beyond "here is the animal", lots of interesting activities for kids and there is waterfountains at every corner - comes very handy if it's hot!

The Zoo is located near the Schöbrunn Palace and it seems to be rather animal friendly. They also have a childrens playground and a few shops to buy food and beverages. We liked it very much and spent about 6 hours there.

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.
