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. « less

It's a really nice zoo and we have really enjoyed it during our Sunday walk! There are really a lot of animals which you dont get to see very often. You will need at least 3-4 hours to see all the animals.

Don't miss if you are there with kids. Penguins, Pands, Polar Bear are the plus attractions though other animals are also there. An enjoyable time for kids.

The zoo did feel a little dated at points which is the reason for the slightly lower score. There were plenty of animals, including ones that I haven't come across in many other zoos such as Koalas and Polar Bears. Simply for the wide range of attractions the zoo deserves to be rated highly. Be warned if you find it... More

Horrible! Animals are in terribly small habitats, the crowd is terrifying, it's like rush hour in the big city, signs are few and poorly made so half of the time you are wondering where you are and where should you go. Animals suffer in tiny enclosures, you can see their despair, so sad! I guess, if this wasn't in Vienna... More

It's a really nice zoo and a great place to spend an afternoon. It's quite big, it took us about 4 hours of walking. There are really a lot of different animals. You can see the zoo is well maintained.

If you want to see this amazing black and white animal, you should visit this place. But the rest of the Zoo and the surroundings is also amazing...

Well the zoo is located at the right side of the palaces' garden 800m far away from the main entrance. Very well organised zoo they give you a map showing also the feeding time schedule of the animals. You can easily spend more than 4 hours without even noticing..

This is one of the best and largest zoos I have visited. We started with a private theme tour which was very reasonably prized, for 65 euros/group you can choose what you want to see with the guide for 1,5 hours. When we booked we told what we were interested in and got a guide who was a researcher in... More

One of the best Zoo's ever! The combination of the old world charm of the Palace combined with the well cared for animals made for a great day. It's amazing how close the animals are, almost as if you could reach out and touch them. Make sure and spend the day to meander through the zoo, taking care to stop... More
