This is not the largest ZOO you will ever visit, but it's location a bit makes is special. Whole ZOO is a strip laid along the foot of a hill - you are basically looking always uphill :-) Kids (and adults alike) enjoyed it a lot.

... visited this beautiful zoo with the Salzburg Card. It is situated next to the Hellbrunn Schloss and gardens. The zoo is not very big, well organized, and we are so close to the animals! You will see a large variety of animals that do not seem to be in "cages", but in a natural surrounding. Very pleasant, and recommended... More

the zoo seems a bit basic in many ways, but you can get close to most of the animals and we particularly liked the kids play area with free roaming goats and chickens. the goats were very friendly and theres also some friendly llamas further in that are happy to be stroked. there were plenty of hand wash areas but...

Have been there, because our daughter wished to visit the zoo... We catched almost hot weather....so first good tip: visit zoo best when cooler, little cloudy weather. Because walking is not so strange...and many animals you can see better, because they dont hide... :-) Inside the zoo you can see many home animaly and some exotic animals too. there is... More

Went there with the kids. My 6 years old and my 2 years old boys enjoyed it most. Set by the side of a mountain, the zoo is somewhat small in size but has a reasonable number of exotic animals. The boys liked the petting zoo most, but my wife hated the strong oder of the place. Not sure if... More

Every time I am in Salzburg, I'll go to this zoo. No doubt. It relaxes me. It's not like Berlin zoo, it's small. But it's beautiful. Situated on a hill, near Hellburnn, with great view on Untersberg, I love it! There is lot of species in the zoo, and I love the fact that they live in large cages surrounded... More

My wife and I wandered over here with the Salzburg card after Schloss Hellbrun since it was part of the Salzburg card and w/in walking distance. It is nothing special. I'm sure younger kids would enjoy it, but not worth stopping at unless you really want to visit a zoo.

Its really well laid out, and has plenty to see, and nice places to stop along the trails. Wonderful attractions! Nice areas for the kids (the petting zoo with the goats and the little playground by the ice cream stand.) The cafeteria was handy, too!

Overall, it was pretty good, but not excellent. I went because I had the Salzburg Card and entry was free, and I was out that way for Hellbrunn Castle. The zoo is small and well laid out. Some enclosures were closed, and some looked too small for the animals. The animals all looked well-looked after, though, and I enjoyed my... More
