Really nice place, but in my opinion a bit pricey. Don't get me wrong, this place is cool, but ticket for zoo should be how much then, 100 euro, or even more!? Crowd is another problem here, there is relatively little space for spectators, so...More

This aquarium/zoo is house in a WW2 Flak tower. Spread over 10 floors there is lots for people to see. Large tanks hold a great selection of marine life plus lots of exotic birds and small animals. When I thought it couldn't get better we...More

Took a while to find but once we did we enjoyed it. Very tall building with lots to see, right at the top is a bar with lovely views.

This place is mostly an aquarium but has some birds, monkeys and crocodiles too. Its setting is ideal for a rainy day

It's an old concrete building from the outside but once you're in it looks good. On the top floor (12) there is a coffee bar with an incredible view over the complete city. If you go down, all kind of fish and reptiles are showed....More

Expensive and small. It was unfortunately a big disappointment for us.. It has only 1 elevator and crowded. Couldn't see a thing :( But the view from the top of the building is great. We liked the aquarium of the sharks.

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with

The trip advisor site does not show entrance fee; while the fee is applicable at the entrance door. Why trip advisor did not post the correct entrance fee to the aquarium zoo? Thanks

Liebe/r Eichhoernchen99! Wir, das Haus des Meeres, möchten uns für Ihren Besuch und Ihr Feedback bedanken. Gerne aber möchten wir auch auf die angesprochenen Punkte eingehen. Anders als die meisten Sehenswürdigkeiten Wiens ist das Haus des Meeres eine rein private, gemeinnützige Institution. Wir finanzieren die gesamte zoologische Ausstellung, die Zucht- und Forschungseinrichtungen, die Gastronomie, Museumsbereiche und die Infrastruktur ausschließlich aus den Besuchereinahmen. Wir erhalten keinen Cent an Subventionen! Dadurch ist auch unser Eintrittspreis nicht mit anderen Zoo´s oder Museen vergleichbar. Überall steht zu lesen, dass wir in einem ehemaligen Flakturm untergebracht und 11. Stockwerke zu besichtigen sind. Daraus ergibt sich, dass diese mit Stiegen verbunden sind. Wir sind seit vielen Jahren bemüht zwei zusätzliche Außenlifte zu errichten, leider haben die Behörden dieses Projekt noch nicht unterstützt. Wir freuen uns, dass wir im Jahr rund 560.000 Besucher begrüßen dürfen, ein bedeutender Teil davon sind auch Kinder und Kleinkinder. Aus unserer Erfahrung finden diese das Erkunden der Stockwerke sehr spannen und die Fahrt mit dem Aufzug ist für die meisten aufgrund der verglasten Türen und Dach auch ein Erlebnis. Wir bedauern, dass Sie dies anders empfunden haben und werden weiterhin um zusätzliche Lifte kämpfen. Beste Grüße, Hans Köppen, Haus des Meeres
