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.

Amazing!

If you go to the castle and the gardens, you must obligatory stop by the zoo and stay there for at least 4-5 hours... It is worth!

The family of panda bears here is a major drawcard - obviously quite rare to see outside of China. The enclosure allows you to get very close to these guys, both outdoors or indoors. It has just about every animal you could hope to see at a zoo, there are plenty of scheduled feeding times for a large range of... More

I don't particularly like zoos, but this one was quite nice. Sure, the animals don't have all the space they could want, and that goes for any zoo, but they seemed well taken care of. We had an hour and a half to spend there, and we could have gladly stayed at least half an hour more. The variety of... More

I liked the giant pandas and polar bear exhibits. I would have liked an English language pamplet/map, but when in Rome, errrgh Vienna... We ate at the conservatory-styled restaurant that is in the heart of the zoo. The spouse had a tough goulash that was flavorless while I scored better with a decent, not great, turkey spaghetti plate. Wait staff... More

This zoo is not a big one but has an amazing selection of animals, my personal top 3 being the Giant Panda's, Koala's & Ice Bears. The use of a lot of glass in the enclosures allows you to get the feeling you can almost touch all these animals & will make you fall in love with any one of... More

I was really looking forward to our visit as I was keen to see the pandas, but the visit surpassed my expectations. We went on a Sunday in mid April. We found it very easy to get there using public transport getting line u4 to Heitzing, and then a short walk to the zoo. We arrived mid morning and got... More

We are here with a 7 & 11 yr old. They've been so good about being dragged around I thought the zoo would be a lovely treat for them. It was a really lovely place. We did it in around 3 hours but my children are quite specific in what they like so we did miss out quite a few... More

I love animals and had definitely made the right choice of going to the zoo! The animals look liked they are very well taken care of and seem to be very happy (which is important to me) They have a new enclosure for their orang utans, polar bears and when I was there, the capybara, leopard, and pandas had given...

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.
