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.

Loved the setting. Beautiful surroundings. Well cared for animals.Awesome time there. The animals all seemed content. Plenty of caring people working there. Lovely place to have a nice coffee and a bite to eat. Easy to find this zoo and we went by train. It was a fun filled day. Loved it.

Zoo are good for conservation. In this one they treat the animals good and they are safe from hunters and poacers, it is an informative ride and they have impressive wildlife. They have a replica of a rain forest and that place is such a trip!!

I really liked the zoo, which is relatively easy to navigate. The highlight for me (as a birdwatcher) was the colony of European Bee-eaters and Hoopoes. A few more signposts and "you are here" maps would be helpful. Right now the giraffe house is being renovated.

This is the oldest zoo and generally it was very lovely. There are open spaces for the animals and there is some great architecture. There were some amazing animals - especially the pandas, elephants and orangutans! There was lots of information which was mostly in German and we would have appreciated some more English (although this was not a big... More

Spent a day at the Zoo as part of our Gold Pass ticket to the Palace. Was great seeing all the animals and really nice to walk around such a well kept and tidy envirnoment. Loads of photo opportunities as well. Need a full day to see everything at the Zoo if you are going to the Palace as well.... More

I love zoos and have been to many but this one stands out for its incredible range of animals. They have pandas which I have never seen at any zoo before and very much enjoyed watching them playing and photoing them. Also they have, polar bears, rock-hopper & emperor penguins, koalas, white wolfs all the big cats and many more.... More

Really good zoo. Though there was enough to do and also has a good history behind it. Plus you are right next to Schonbrunner. Cant remember the costs right off the top of my head but, I would say it was good value for money.

This zoo has almost any animal you could think of! What we enjoyed the most was the polar bear whom if you can catch swimming you get amazing views! The Pandas and seals are also amazing to see when eating. The animals have great space and conditions to live in. You feel like in the wilderness when you visit them.... More

Lots of cool, cute, and weird animals to see. Mostly neat knowing you are in the world's oldest zoo. It has a unique feel to it and is right next to the castle. We were able to see new born baby goats that had just been born which was awesome.
