Owner description: 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.

“Great Zoo”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a great zoo with numerous animals. Unlike many zoos in the world they donot charge extra to see other exotic animals. Entry to the aquarium, reptile exhibits, etc are included in the admission. The zoo also has over half dozen eating options including vegetarian ones. We were surprised to see vege burgers in the menu.

“Huge, beautiful and well-maintained zoo”
Reviewed May 8, 2013

Huge, beautiful and well-maintained zoo. Plan lunch and rest, otherwise it is tiring. Buy tickets online - a weekend ticket line is very high. Never stop to eat at Café Hietzing - very bad service - slow, with multiple errors and as a result - missing food.

“Good balance”
Reviewed May 8, 2013 via mobile

After 40 imperial rooms at Schonbrunn it was some welcome light relief. A pretty zoo in which it is nice to have a walk around. We went to Schonbrunn when it opened and went straight to the zoo. It was pretty quiet when we were there, but had long lines as we were leaving. First thing you have the place to yourself.

“A fantastic zoo”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a fantastic zoo and in my humble opinion should not be missed if you are in Vienna. The animals are extremely well taken care of and seem to be without a care in the world. You can see pandas, lions, tigers, jaguars, elephants, lots of birds, and tons of marine life. The zoo is beautiful and fits in perfect with historic Vienna. And the palace is just next door! It's really easy to get to from the subway. Don't miss it if you are in town!
