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.

Unable to see the Panda as she had just given birth to twins, but there was an outside screen viewing the den. Polar Bears found the day too hot and were hiding in the shade. Not disappointing but understandable. Still a great day out for all.

We visited this Zoo today. We paid 54€ for 2 children and 2 adults, not that expensive imo. We saw a lot of rare animals and they also have a lot of restaurants in the Zoo if you want to eat something. But I don't recommend the Zoo Store. Too expensive...but if you really want to get something..get it

Highly recommended that people visit this zoo. Bring a picnic basket and sit on the bench to eat and watch the animals roam around. We went with friends and family. All the kida enjoyed themselves. There is a live bat cave there and you can walk through the live bat cave, the bats will fly all around you. Very scary... More

By far the best zoo we've been too, the annual meals are so close no active, only 1metre away from a pair of cheetahs playing and within touching distance of a polar bear eating fish. Plenty of places to rest this is an amazing zoo, many of the animals here we don't have in England, we even g t to... More

Enjoyed coming here in the earlier morning with the girls before the crowds built up. Admission price is a little on the high side but the zoo is top notch in all ways that I could see. The setting is absolutely lovely, and the animals look well cared for. Recently, two baby pandas were born here, and the zoo helpfully... More

I spent around 4 hours in this magnificent zoo. There were many animals to be seen such as polar bears, tigers, elephants, amongst others. The place is well-kept. A great place to spend time with your family

This zoo is one of the best zoo's I've ever seen. They have almost every animal in there and more! They have The Great Panda from China, although We saw only one sitting on tree, because mama Panda was resting inside with newly born little Panda. Prices are good considering it's in Vienna and all. I recommend this to everyone... More

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.
