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.

We managed to see almost every animal in two hours ... would recommend longer though as it was quite a rush. The hot house with the bats in was very cool, they fly around your head in the dark! Recommend a visit.

On your way to the Gloriette inside the Schoenbrunn park on your right hand is the entrance of the Zoo. Do not miss! I was lucky enough to be at 14:00 when they feed the Panda.

The Zoo in Vienna just of the Schonbrunn Palace is well worth a visit. It is likely the oldest Zoo in Europe and is a must for both grownups and definetely children. It is not to be missed!!

Plan a full day, sit down and observe the behaviour of the animals. The best spot is the Kaiserpavillon, where you can enjoy the historic atmosphere, have a cup of (expensive) coffee and traditional Viennese sweet dishes. I can recommend the canopy pathway up to the Tirolerhof, though this is time consuming and at times steep and exhausting. The Tirolerhof... More

A zoo remains a zoo of course. One should say, however, that despite the fact that this is the world's oldest, still functioning zoo with a good part of its buildings constructed in the 18th century, a lot of successful efforts have been made in the last 20 years to seriously improve living conditions for the zoo animals. Successful breeding... More

Nice for families, couples. It's worth visiting at any weather. If you can be there at times when they are feeding the animals.

The size of the place is incredible and you have a lot of things to see there, so as an advice i recommend you to plan at least 4 hours in the place, there are places inside to grab a bite so dont worry about that. DONT MISS THE PANDA!

Neighbourhood Profile
Hietzing
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 Hietzinger Hauptstrasse for Kaiserpavillon (Emperor’s pavilion), an Art Nouveau gem right on top of U4’s metro railtracks. At local institutions Café Dommayer and restaurant Plachutta you can mingle with residents, their families and friends. Dommayer has risen to fame since waltz king Johann Strauss and his orchestra performed there regularly. If you want to go beyond private villa gazing visit Klimtvilla and Hermesvilla. Art Nouveau genius Gustav Klimt had his last studio in a now beautifully renovated villa, which is open during spring and summer. Hermesvilla at Lainzer Tiergarten animal enclosure and nature park is a must for all romantics and fans of Empress Sissi.
