Easy to get too. Well laid out with a good selection of animal types. The Pandas are a must. Only criticism is that on a non sunny day the catering facilities are only indoor aside from hot dogs etc so take a packed meal. On hot days they open up all the catering which makes it much easier to get... More

I've read through the reviews about the Tiergarten Zoo, and have a hard time understanding all the enthusiastic comments. Perhaps it is because it is the oldest Baroque zoon in the world. We spent the morning at the zoo, while passing through Vienna on our way to Prague. Before saying more, I should say that we live in Chicago, within... More

I am a former zookeeper and am very picky when it comes to visiting zoos. I didn't see all of the zoo, but what I did see, I enjoyed. This is a really good zoo, and I've included some tips for how to make your trip more enjoyable. Overall, the animals were well taken care of with clean enclosures, and... More

Best Zoo in the World! Very big with many animals. You will Need many hours to see everything. I have a yearcard and visit the zoo like once every week. Better to go Monday to Thursday early so that it is not overcrowded. Only Thing, a day ticket is expensive. About 15 euro... Still you will enjoy it there. It... More

Tiergarten is, I understand, is the oldest continuously operating zoo in the world. And it must maintain that rep by continuously updated and upgrading. We visit Vienna for a few weeks every year and we got annual passes to go back again and again. As example of continuously upgrading, they are building a massive Polar Bear exhibit that is to...

Nothing in the zoo was explained in english, which is a big disappointment for me. Especially, since Vienna is such a touristic city. I guess they assumed that everyone is fluent in german.

It's a big zoo with lots of different animals and even a tropical house. For me it was average but I am not a massive fan of zoos anyway. The animals didn't look very happy and some didn't look well cared for. On the positive side the zoo is well laid out and you can get a map of the... More

The history and setting of this zoo make it interesting, though some of the enclosures seem very small for animals today. And there is a huge variety of different animals to see, even when it is raining. So it is a perfect place to take kids. The pavilion in the middle is a good place for coffee, not the sort... More
