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.

Only Zoo where the giant pandas have had 4 births by natural conception, of which two were twin births. That reflects that, the animals generally in Schönbrunn feel comfortable, other wisw you wouldn't see so many baby animals.

This zoo is really something extraordinary. Very big, specious, animals don't look like they suffer (at least they aren't in small cage and/or hungry). If you have time I suggest reserve whole day for this wonderful experience, and if you finish before, then there is great palace with beautiful garden to see.If you are in hurry, you could visit all...

Having been to Singapore zoo and African national parks I found this place ridiculously small. Accessibility - it's next to schobrunn metro station Affordability- around 18 euros per person. I didn't find it worth it. Value for money- Only if you are visiting with kids

Although not particularly fond of Zoo's I seem to spend at least 2 hours visiting them when accompanying my wife and daughter who love them. We visited the Zoo as it is contained within the Schonbrunn gardens that we were visiting and apparently is the oldest Zoo in the world. The Zoo itself is very large and well designed with... More

Wonderful day out - excellent range of animals who seemed to be well treated with great space. Be sure to give yourself enough time as this zoo is quite big, we ended up spending 3 hours walking around! Relatively cheap swell at 18.50 for an adult.

we walked thru the zoo in around two hours. the enclosures are nice updated though a bit small for some of the animals. the polar bear was too cute his enclosure seems a bit small for him. the pandas and red pandas, the bats - all interesting and accessible.

Only wanted to visit this zoo as I wanted to see the panda, but unfortunately timed it wrong as the were off limits due to the birth of twins, which is great news for the panda population, just not great for me!! The rest of the zoo was pretty awesome, didn't get to see all the animals there, but the... More

During the Schönbrunn garden visit, the Zoo is really a must see. The oldest Zoo in the world(?), Very well presented information tables, lots to see and interesting to read about how the zoo works with others and helps preserve endangered species from extinction. well worth supporting by visiting.

Thank piucat

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.
