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.

I did not realise that the zoo was literally attached to the Schönbrunn Gardens. It was a welcome surprise and I decided to extend my trip with an afternoon in the zoo. It is an exceptional zoo with wide open spaces so the animals don't look as if they are in cramped conditions. There are plenty of eating opportunities although... More

An immense green space, an afternoon is not enough to visit it all. Guided tours on any topic for 60 €. It is a real garden zoo; young people feeding the animals are patient and competent, and all the animals seem very happy to live there! Highly recommended for everyone, not just for families with children.

I visited the Zoo in November during term time so it was peaceful with no crowds.It's a wonderful zoo with many animals but I was most excited to see the Pandas and their little cub and was not disappointed.

It may not be as big as other zoos, but it is definitely fascinating. The habitatas for the animals, most of which offer you a very close encounter with the residents, are adapted to the animal's needs and very well kept. Surely worth the time to visit (make sure you take at least a few hours)

The best zoo I was. My son was very excited! Is pretty huge, better to come here early at the morning at sunny day. Animals look happy :)

As a couple of holidaymakers we usually try to include a zoo trip into our holiday and on looking at the zoo offerings for the places we visited we plumped for Vienna's on the back of great reviews all around the internet. We were not disappointed. For €16.50 per adult we got a huge zoo which, despite the chilly November... More
