Too big. African elephants kept in very small enclosures. Also the layout not clearly marked and a bit confusing

We loved the Zoo although the Australian animals and Polar Bear chose this day to make themselves scarce. We enjoyed the beautiful venue and the huge array of animals. One of the best we've ever seen.

We had a great time at the Vienna Zoo. The animals seemed well taken care of and had nice enclosures with plenty of places to retreat to when they wanted to. The grounds were beautiful with lots of trees and shade which was welcomed as it was a very warm day when we visited. If you appreciate the beauty of... More

This is the one of the best zoos I`ve ever been to. One of the few zoos in the world which have pandas and even the new-born baby pandas. one of the places of interest is a tropical section, where they create moist and hot climate so different types of tropical plants can grow. there is also a simulation of...

Seeing the panda bears was an extraordinary experience. Unfortunately the rest of the zoo was a boring visit. A large number of enclosures were empty. The enclosures of the bears and the big cats have lots of trees and bushes which is nice for the animals but bad for visitors.

The Zoo was a disappointment. Guess we are a bit spoiled by large Zoos. It was a very long walk thru the palace and across the grounds to reach the entrance on loosed gravel. Wear shoes that are comfortable for this one. It was quiet, nice but not exciting. Would not do this one again.

Well, my wife and I love to visit zoos, so of course, we included a visit to Tiergarten in conjunction with our touring of beautiful Schonbrunn Palace. Maybe our expectations were too high per prior Tripadvisor reviews, maybe we had become too used to zoos of the caliber of Bronx and San Diego, thus despite our relative enjoyment of our... More
