Vienna's Schonbrunn Zoo and Giant Ferris Wheel

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    Admire the Baroque architecture as you enter Schonbrunn Zoo, dating back to the days of Empress Maria Theresia and her husband Franz Stephan von Lothringen. Check out the breakfast pavilion in the center where you can still enjoy an "Imperial Breakfast," if you choose.

    Wander around the area’s many attractions, including koalas, jaguars, orangutans, elephants and the beloved giant pandas. After spotting some of your favorite creatures, head to the Children’s Playground and Petting Zoo for some extra fun for the kids, and stop by the rainforest mirroring the unique ecosystems of Borneo.

    Then enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city with a trip on the Giant Ferris Wheel, an iconic symbol of Vienna’s Prater, the large public park in the 2nd district. The wheel is visible from all over the city with its distinct silhouette and offers incredible views of Vienna from the top. Hop on to enjoy this architectural gem from all angles.

    I almost did not venture out to the zoo, but having done many museums the first couple days and needing a way to justify riding the ferris wheel (admission ticket is discounted with zoo purchase), I ended up spending a half day out here. The...More

    Once you have seen one zoo you have seen them all. Well, this one is the oldest zoo in the world and it sits in a beautiful park that uses the landscape to its advantage. A lot of more modern parks are flat, man-made caged...More
