Zoo Vienna, the oldest existing zoo in the world founded in 1752....

Zoo Vienna, the oldest existing zoo in the world founded in 1752. Schonbrunn Zoo was voted Europe's best in 2008, 2010 and 2012.

Schonbrunn Zoo is the perfect place for a journey into the fascinating world of the animal kingdom. Open year round, it combines the highlights of the natural world with an unparalleled history as the world's oldest and Europe's best zoo. It is part of Schonbrunn as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listed site and home to more than 700 species of animals. Marvel at the Giant pandas, tigers, orangutans, koalas and elephants, immerse yourself in the magic of the Amazon and feel the heat of a tropical rainforest in the heart of Europe. Moderated feeding sessions, guided tours and a trip aboard the panorama train turn a trip to the zoo into an unforgettable experience.

Very impressed with this Zoo, there are a wide range of animals to see and sometimes you were in touching distance of some of the animals.(Behind glass of course) me and my friends spent a good 3/4 hours there which was more than enough time to see everything. Also the Bat enclosure was unique and very fun.

Went here today with my husband. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Lots of beautiful animals. Lovely info about the new baby panda twins born a short while ago. Great watching the chetahs being fed (not for the faint hearted!). Great displays and information. Loads of options for food/drink/we. Very close to underground for ease of access.... More

A great zoo for all ages! Far better than your average British Zoo. Beautiful surroundings and if you're visiting the palace anyway, ensure to visit the Zoo. You can spend hours looking around and plenty of cafes and shops along the way.

A small but well maintained zoo, plenty to see and the animals looked well kept, as one of the oldest in the world it was nice to see. Even though busy there was enough room for all to view the animals

Lovely walking round the zoo, you can see the penguins & sea lions being fed, some of the animals were a little hard to spot, but the place is well kept & clean.

We totally loved the Tiergarten zoo - fantastic enclosures and such happy animals in great condition. A joy to see, especially the seals and polar bears who are worth the admission price alone.

Thank MagdalaJo

Staying in Hietzing

Neighborhood Profile
Vienna’s 13th district has always been in the shadow of Schönbrunn Palace and its gardens, but has interesting hidden gems waiting to be discovered. Allow half a day for the imposing Habsburg residence and the gardens with Gloriette belvedere. Reserve the other half to discover the secret charms of this posh residential neighborhood. Sneak out of the gardens at Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
