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

The zoo is small, but nicely laid out. We went during December knowing full well that the animals may not be as lively as they would be in the warmer months. We were able to see all the exhibits in about 2 hours. The wolf, bear, and big monkeys were not there since the zoo is remodeling the enclosures (would... More

I went there alone since it’s located next to the Hellbrunn Castle and the garden. Just take the bus line number 25 to the Hellbrunn Castle and one more stop, it’s the Salzburg zoo bus stop. I visited the Hellbrunn Castle first. Unfortunately, it only opens during summer time (again… many places closed during this time). I bought the Salzburg... More

Major disappointment! Spent a few hours at the zoo and was totally appalled by the state of the enclosures for the animals. The lions, puma, tigers were in such small enclosures that left them to lie there in a comatose state looking bored and lifeless. Some enclosures were abandoned and over grown. I would not recommend anyone visiting this zoo... More

The zoo is small, but you can touch many animals and see them in a natural habitat, not in cages. If you buy Salzburg card, the zoo is included in the price. It's totally worth visiting. Lions are gorgeous!

Great to go with kids, especially on a nice day. Nice location near Anif. Friesacher family restaurants not far in Anif.

Although I prefer seeing animals in the wild, I had the impression the animals at Zoo Salzburg were as healthy and happy as animals can be outside of their natural environment.

We weren't planning to visit a zoo during our short stay in Salzburg, but this ended up being the highlight of our trip! The zoo was fantastic. They had lots of different animals, from monkeys to cougars to rhinos. We were there for feeding time in some enclosures, so the animals were very active and enjoyable to watch. Also, the... More

Although there was a great many different animals to see, my personal favourite, was watching the Buzzard being fed on the path, so we could get very close to it.
