This zoo is located on the side of the mountain on the edge of town, but is easily accessible by public transportation. They had many animals that I have never seen before. They had rhinos, zebras, cheetahs, and many more. They had animals that you don't normally see in America.

Good visit, even in winter! The animals seem to be very well cared for and the surrounding area is gorgeous. The grounds are clean as well. Some of the highlights were the monkeys, snow leopard, flamingos, and alpacas! Worth a visit if you're in Salzburg for longer than 2-3 days.

We absolutely loved our zoo outing. Just 2 adults! The animals were in large, natural enclosures, and they all seemed very happy. No nervous pacing or bad habits. They had a great variety of animals from around the world, and the vistas were really lovely. You get quite close to many of the animals, the big cats were even quite... More

Some people remain opposed to zoos in principle, but this one is more like a wildlife park with plenty of room for the animals to roam freely in large enclosures. We saw mountain goats (we had earlier seen one when we took the cable car to Untersberg), brown bears, flamingos, alpacas, rhinos, turtles, an otter, monkeys and a snow leopard.... More

We visited here on our holiday to Ruhpolding, Bavaria (only 5 EUR return journey with an eXtra card). We visited this zoo in 2010 when we stayed in Fuschl am See, loved it then and still love it now. The animals are all held in natural surroundings and you can see that they are all well cared for by their... More

Really nice location with view of Untersberg. The zoo is located on the side of a mountain which provides a very natural habitat for animals. Very large space for them to roam around. And the latest addition to the zoo, the baby rhino was just adorable and worth the visit. Only minus was the cafeteria, with a somewhat poor selection... More

We went to the zoo part of the Helbrunn Palace and it was nicely done, the animals had their own ponds, waterfalls, trees and grass. It was nice the way they had different animals together. The bears were really interesting playing together, they put on a show for the crowds. It made a nice change from fortress and palaces and... More

Absolutely loved it, had pretty much every animal we'd want to see and there were absolutely no crowds when we went, got to go close up next to Rhinos, Lions etc without loads of other visitors around.
