Much better than expected

Even London Zoo we visited last month wasn't as impressive. Animals looked well and lively and we had good views of them. If it's your thing I'd recommend it.

We were very impressed at the quality and size of the zoo. The animals all seemed healthy and active. We only saw about half of the zoo, as we just stopped by on our way back to town.

We had a few hours to spare before catching our flight back to the UK and as it was a nice day decided to visit the Zoo as it was a short drive from the airport. What a revelation. It is a small zoo with cliffs as backdrop of some of the enclousures. There is lots for kids to do,... More

It was my first visti to a zoo in last ten or so years. When coming back from the Untersberg mountain to the city center, I stopped over at Salzburg zoo with a low level of expectation. However, it turned out to be a good time in there. Animals are kept relatively close to the spectators so that you can... More

Set in front of a long rocky hill a great scenic location. The layout is a bit strange as you have to walk back on yourself to view the whole park. A good selection of animals that look well looked after. The food bags to feed the goats are a bit expensive at €3 a bag. Near the restaurants you... More

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...
