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.

We took our two young children here and they loved it. It cost less than €30 for the four of us, a bargain compared to zoos in England. The zoo setting with the mountains nearby is beautiful and the animal enclosures are refreshingly spacious. There are play areas and picnic places and also cafes and restaurants. Our children loved this... More

Having read some reviews of this zoo I wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. The setting is quite unique up against the rock of the hillside and there is a good variety of animals. We expected to be there for maybe an hour but spent an awful lot longer there enjoying the well maintained enclosures and well looked... More

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
