A nice little zoo on the side of a hill just outside the city. My Highlights: the mountain animals inkl. Ibex, brown bear <3 my favorite, snow leopard and cougar; the white rhinos with the free roaming kattas. The Salzburg Card covers the admission. It's on the way to Untersberg -- same bus #25.

In any season, the enclosures for cougars, snow-leopards and jaguars are really impressive. These big cats (I have included cougars due to their size) can be seen on the slopes of the hill situated in the background. This alllows a very good visibility (a significant advantage as compared to enclosures on flat terrain). Moreover, all animals in Salzburg Zoo are... More

With the Salzburg card the zoo is included and if you visit the nearby palace and take a water fountain tour, ask at the end which exit to take to walk 5 mins to get to the zoo. You need to validate your Salzburg card at the ticket window in the zoo and they give you a zoo ticket. Easy!... More

About 30 minutes drive from Alstadt, old town, Salzburg, the zoo is not large or very commercial as in larger metropolises. The setting is heavenly spoilt only by the smell of some animals (only natural). It's set at the foot of a steep mountain and refund in a straight line along the mountain. You can cover it in 2-3 hours... More

We used our Salzburg cards for admission. It's a nice zoo with an unusual mountain-side layout. Too cold for many of the animals to be visible, but that's to be expected in early March. Neither of us is terribly crazy about zoos, but this one isn't bad.

Was led to believe this was a beautiful zoo surrounded by mountains. It was winter so all the animals were either hibernating or just not there. The few big cats we saw were in very limited grounds and appeared sad and bored. We walked completely around but found little to see and only stayed about an hour. This was a... More

Its just a superb place to visit with the family. The kids were ecstatic to see the animals in their semi-natural habitat.

In early December,on a pleasant sunny day,I spent several hours enjoying this zoo which has an alpine atmosphere.I appreciated its alpacas,rhinoceroses.,Przewalski Horses,Alpine Ibexes,zebras,and wolverines at this pleasant,but not large zoo.I liked its nice cafeteria where I had a nice bowl of Goulash Soup.This zoo is a short walk from Salzburg's Hellbrunn Palace.

Good zoo....alot of animals probably in hibernation at this time of year. Was nice seeing the black and white snow leopards and also the rhinos and zebras have a great enclosure and it looks like they are wandering around in the open. Included in the Salzburg card which is why we went.....very pleasant morning. Also, the eagles being fed at... More
