Overview

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.

The zoo is really big and good but some places it feels like animals need more space. It’s a good and well maintained one but attimes we need to think different

We only had a day to go to the zoo and it was very cold and windy, so we probably didn't get the full benefit of all the sights. The pandas were a highlight even though they were huddled up sleeping in the freezing weather...More

Deciding to not go into the Zoo, based on what you see from outside, is one thing. But assessing our Zoo without even entering is a pity.

If you are traveling with kids, this is the place to unwind after a dose of history and arts. Make sure to avoid visiting on days when certain sections of the zoo are closed for maintenance

This was an excellent zoo. Getting to see pandas, bears, orangutans and armadillos were just a few of the highlights. Sadly the polar bears did not want to make an appearance. The zoo is well-laid out with clear signposting (a rarity in Vienna) and there...More

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

Not sure about an actual penguin parade, but the exhibit itself is quite extensive. The keepers were always on hand feeding and cleaning. You do get very close to them.

Yes the zoo will be open. I would say it would be between 10- 15 degrees.
