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.

It is a magical place near the imperial palace and its magnificent gardens. They treat their animals much better than certain governments in the developing world and they seem very happy to be in a beautiful place as such.

Lovely zoo, animals well looked after. Have never seen elephants so active and enjoying the fun. Only saw one panda, but better than none. Lots of eating places and easy to get to on underground. Well worth a visit.

Enjoyed the visit to the Zoo very much! The location is beautiful, you can see animals quite close but at the same time all the animals' enclosures are very safe. You can buy tickets just for a Zoo or to combine the ticket with the...More

The zoo is very well designed and enjoyable to walk through. I just believe that more shows and identifications would have enriched my experience. There was many construction works and weather conditions, so some of the animals were moved to safe houses. Seeing many empty...More

This was by far my best zoo experience topping my earlier favourite - Changi zoo at Singapore. The overall size of the zoo is small and there are very few "shows" but the entire range of animals and the way they describe are absolutely amazing....More

This zoo covers a large area (17 hectares) so you have to consider spending one full day (8 -10 hours) to visit it all. Compared to other European zoos, this one seems outdated (no wonder as it is the oldest zoo in the world! -...More

Thank you for your Feedback. We certainly cannot guarantee all animals to be seen and for a modern zoo it is essential that all of our animals have enought space and also areas for themselves. A/C´s are not in our restaurants, we do have so...More

Didn't see all the creatures at this zoo, but what we did see looked well cared for, we were disappointed by the space definitely seemed like too many Elephants for the area, one was looking frustrated by it's repeating movements.

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 neighbourhood. Sneak out of the gardens at
Hietzinger Tor (Hietzing Gate) and head down
