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.

U can meet really rare species there - like Great Pandas, Koalas or Polar Bear. It is great idea to be there during the feeding time - timetable on the website!

It is a nice zoo, if you have extra time in Vienna it is worth visiting, it seems they take great care of the animals they have.

Best zoo we have been too, the animals are looked after really well. The Panda's are very lazy and the Kola's are cute. Nice walk through the palace gardens to the zoo. Well worth a visit.

Not the best zoo, but it is within a very large Garden. Great to walk around, take photos! I was a bit unhappy to see the Zoo's favorite animal Panda, was like a slave. She was not happy, and there are hours to see her out :( The cage is small. A typical Zoo for central Europe.

I've visited Viena in august 2016, and in the last day i've visited this Zoo.It is the oldest in Europe and you can find it in the garthens of the Schoenbrunn palace.The entrance costs 19 euros for adults and about 10 for children, but it is really worth all the money.I saw a lot of unusual animals like elephants, tigers,...

If you are tired of art galleries and museums, try the zoo - a lovely morning's activity. Lots to keep everyone amused - a group of four all agreed it was a really worthwhile activity.

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.
