About
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.

This is a lovely zoo on the grounds of Schonbrunn Palace. There are a lot of areas to see, including a really nice forested walk that ends in a beautiful viewpoint of the city. There are a lot of spots for kids, including a large playground next to a petting zoo. There is a good variety of animals, along with several places to eat. You could easily spend half a day here.

Its been a while since I visited any kind of zoo and I've also been fortunate to see may animals in the wild. So whilst I see the potential value in a zoo for people who don't get the change to travel more widely, this visit left my quite depressed. I have no doubt that the keepers etc do their best but the place seems worn out, tired and need of much investment. There is obvious work going on but the animal quarters seem cramped and tired. The penguin enclosure is especially sad with no obvious access to natural light for some and so many of the animals give of a sense of unhappiness. It was a hot day when we visited and I'm sure that impacted the animals as so many were hidden away but it wasn't a great experience and put me off visiting a zoo ever again.

A really great place to go for a few hours. We were lucky with the weather too. Be sure to add tickets to see the Palm house and Desert house. A few enclosures were closed in the zoo , so we missed seeing those. But overall the zoo is great. The enclosures are as natural as you can get in a city, and all of the animals looked in good health.
The giraffes were our favourite.

This zoo is such an amazing place to visit. It has such an array of animals, including koala bears, polar bears, crocodiles and even spiders!

Had such an enjoyable time and loved how much space the animals... watching the elephants roam around was so lovely to see.

Highly recommend this zoo to any visitors heading to Vienna.

Great ZOO. Very tidy, well organized, intuitive to get arround, lots and lots of animals, clean toilets allover the place, drinking watter everywhere. A bit on the pricy side but worth a visit. Good food in restaueants.

I have traveled the world visiting zoos the zoo in the Tiergarten is the best in the world.
The setting is very unusual as it has a central point from where you can set off from.
It is very clean and the animals all look contented
The Pandas are the main attraction but all the zoo is pleasant to walk round and refreshments readily available

We spent most of our day here after a palace tour. Nice selection of animals and well done. We enjoyed seeing some of the historic buildings but are glad they are making changes that are better for the animals. We were excited to see the giant pandas, and this time of year there were tons of babies that were so neat. One polar bear seemed to be having the time of its life with a toy - so fun to watch!
