Had Salzburg bus pass so got free entry. Not as big as I expected but nice and clean. It was a scorcher when we did the tour and gave up half way as there were very little shade and most of the benches were in the sun.

This zoo has improved exponentially since I first visited in 1989, and again in 2000. The zoo doesn't pretend to more than it is, which is as much an historic landmark as an animal attraction. Adding the extra land in the last two decades for large animals like rino and giving the lions a bigger space was nice to see.

The zoo was the cleanest zoo I have ever seen. It is way cleaner than zoos such as zoos in the US and China. The zoo is very easy to get to, you only have to go on bus 25 and there is a stop whose name is Salzburg Zoo. The cost is $10.50 but we got there for free... More

Free bus and entry with Salzburg card.Combine your visit with Hellbrunn. The zoo is set against a rocky background. The animal enclosures were spacious and provided a natural setting for the animals. You were really close to the animals, Lions, Tigers, Snow leopard. There is plenty for children to do, play areas and petting animals.

Visited with wife, son 12, daughter 11. Buy a Salzburg card for bus transportation there and entry. We got off the bus adn visited the Hellbrunn Palace and fountains, then walked up a short hill for a quick visit to the Salzburg zoo. The native Austrian animals are located between Hellbrunn and the main entrance. We ate at the zoo... More

The ZOO is nicely set onto a sizeable rocky hill, easily accesible by car with good parking just outside the entrance. It is only smaller than other zoos and do not expect to spend there more than 1-2 hours. Also catering options were very limited.

This was our only disappointment in the days we spent in Salzburg. There just is not much to see here. It's easy to get to on the 25 bus but there are better things to see in Salzburg than this zoo.

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.
