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.

If you have to have them then Vienna's is good. We went on a stiflingly hot day, elephants loving the heat and shower, panda's and koalas doing what they do. A very nice wander about with a polar bear swimming. But check your change at the food kiosks, which was twice a spoiler.

Vienna zoo is definitely a really nice zoo to visit. There are many different animals to see, unfortunately because it was so hot the day we went a lot of them were all away sleeping. Nevertheless the zoo is well worth while seeing.

It is definitely one of the best zoos in Europe. As two adults we had a great time in the beautiful zoo.

great to see pandas and hippos and rhinoes. Still building the giraffe house and no sign of the polar bears. Just felt some oe the animals needed more room. Fish were stunning. Also a route round would be helpful. FInally - a littl eprocet at 18 euros. But a definite recommendation - flamigoes, ostriches and alligators.

A fabulous Zoo with a wide range of species in exquisitely designed enclosures! I also loved the history of the old (unoccupied) vintage style closures!

Do not go in winter. We were freezing and all animals were in the in-house cages which smelled really bad. We go outside , it's cold , we go inside, it's smelly!

The zoo was beautiful, and lots of different animals. The zoo had won "best zoo in Europe", and definitely lives up to the award.

Thank Philippe N

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.
