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.

worst experience
Oct 2021
Worst communication experience have ever had in my life.
We bough ticket online and went to visit Zoo on Sunday 17 October.
In front door was the covid check by a girl and a boy.
We showed up our vaccination certificate with tow dosses of Sinovac vaccine and we were told by them that you are not allowed to enter by this kind of vaccine.
I explained to them that Austrian government officially except all vaccines approved by EMA or those one finished evaluation procedure by WHO. SO, Sinovac was well known and accepted by the Austrian government. In this way we fliyed by Austrian Airline m we were checked and approved by officer control in border , we entered in any bar and restaurants in Viena , all of them with SInovac vaccine certificate. In very RUDE WAY we were told to leaving away from there as the Schoenbrunn palace has its own rule.
Just am curios to know how a business or other public or private institution may have rules in contrary with its own Government.... !? Any business or public institution can issue its own orders or rules BUT always in compliance of the government rules not in objection with them .
Shame on them for their behavior!

Ethical dilemma
Oct 2021
This is the very first zoo in the world, but when you access it, it's actually quite modern. An ideal path sends you in the right direction and will take you along all the interesting animals. There are plenty of food stands and animals to see. As with all zoos I have an ethical issue with visiting such a place. On the one hand: animals are being taken care off and zoos have a crucial role in animal conservation. On the other hand, some of these animals look really depressed. Especially the orangutans looked really sad with such expressive eyes it was almost impossible not to cry.

Wonderful Zoo!!
Aug 2021 • Family
Truly wonderful Zoo that is packed full of animals without feeling crowded. 2-3 hours should do it.

One thing that is different at this zoo is that the animals are all rescues, not part of some breeding program.

If you are a fan of pelicans, they are a do not miss here. Have never seen ones so large.

As like everything else in Vienna, the zoo is spotless and well organized. We went on a hot, sunny afternoon and no smell of poop.....

Pekná Zoo
Jun 2021 • Friends
🇸🇰Keďže som o tejto ZOO počula veľa, tak sme ju rozhodli navštíviť. O zvieratá je pekne postarané, ale úprimne som čakala od tejto návštevy viac. Za cenu vstupného som videla aj krajšie a väčšie ZOO, ako táto . A najúsmevnejšie na celej návšteve bolo chytanie lemura, ktorý im utiekol 🙂

🇬🇧Since I heard a lot about this ZOO, we decided to visit it. The animals are well taken care of, but I honestly expected more from this visit. For the price of admission, I have seen a more beautiful and larger ZOO than this one. And the funniest thing about the whole visit was catching a lemur which escaped them 🙂

Not worth the visit on a hot days
Jul 2021 • Friends
I must admit one of my hobbies are to visit in the foreign zoos while I'm traveling abroad.
It's been too many zoos in Europe this was my first time in Vienna zoo.
The zoo is very big and there is no places when you can rest without being the Sun.
Because of the high temperature during July most of the animals were in their cabins and you didn't so almost anything.
I do recommend to visit the zoo in cooler days and not during the summer peak

Very good place for children!
May 2020
I think that this zoo is a very good place for children. There are mini games everywhere like the giant screen which you can play games on the polar bears hall. There is an rainforest, so be sure that you check it out. Very clean! I suggest that if you ever visit Vienna you should check it!
