It is a really outstanding aquarium/zoo. You can see free little monkeys, birds fly above your head, you can even pet fish! On the terrace you can take superbe panorama pictures of Vienna.

Every storey comprises some curiosities from the animals´ world. You can approach little monkeys and birds but I wouldn´t try to touch them. Beautiful aquariums with fish and sharks, all that you can imagine to have in a ZOO under one roof.

Found by complete accident we decided to pay a visit and were taken by the variety and layout of this place. As a aquarium/terrarium the building has a good variety of fish, reptiles, arthropods, birds and a few monkeys running amok. Admission was 16 euros for adults and also offers a pretty 360 panoramic view of Vienna. Would recommend for... More

Had some time to kill and found that this aquarium/zoo is open late on a Thursday. We decided to go and visit as it is not that expensive. It is a strange place, in an unusual building. Build on a number of floors, there is only a few tanks on each floor. It doesn't take that long for a visit.... More

Take your time for a visit to the roof - it opens a great 360 degree view over the city, so better go in a clear weather. The zoo itself has 8-9 floors of different types of animals. A lot of aquariums, a lot of exotic animals, serpents etc. Quite interesting!

This is actually 11-floor building Terra zoo, while each floor is quite small. There is a good selection of animals, 2-3 huge aquariums, many smaller aqua- and terrariums, area with birds and monkeys. On the top floor there are cafe and open terrasses with very beautiful Vienna views. Good place to visit when weather isn't good. But, and this is... More

It is a quite small zoo, and does not worth the money. Access fee is about 15 euros but for 16 you can go to the Schonbrunn Zoo and that's a true experience. All you can find at Haus des Meers you can also find at Schonbrunn, and much, much, much more. The only thing that made us not to... More

If you have time to spare from checking out the culture in vienna then give this a try. I recommend taking the lift to the top and checking out the views first - perhaps a spot of light refreshment in the rooftop cafe before working your way down floor to floor .Lots of interesting exhibits. Reptiles and all types of... More
