A great place to visit with the kids

Its just a superb place to visit with the family. The kids were ecstatic to see the animals in their semi-natural habitat.

Was led to believe this was a beautiful zoo surrounded by mountains. It was winter so all the animals were either hibernating or just not there. The few big cats we saw were in very limited grounds and appeared sad and bored. We walked completely around but found little to see and only stayed about an hour. This was a... More

In early December,on a pleasant sunny day,I spent several hours enjoying this zoo which has an alpine atmosphere.I appreciated its alpacas,rhinoceroses.,Przewalski Horses,Alpine Ibexes,zebras,and wolverines at this pleasant,but not large zoo.I liked its nice cafeteria where I had a nice bowl of Goulash Soup.This zoo is a short walk from Salzburg's Hellbrunn Palace.

Good zoo....alot of animals probably in hibernation at this time of year. Was nice seeing the black and white snow leopards and also the rhinos and zebras have a great enclosure and it looks like they are wandering around in the open. Included in the Salzburg card which is why we went.....very pleasant morning. Also, the eagles being fed at... More

Zoo is located just outside the city and can be reached by bus 25 in about 20 minutes. It contains a variety of animals set in very nice ground and uses the hilly territory to house the animals in large well maintained enclosures. Entry is free with the Salzburg card (as is the bus. From here it is a short... More

It's the best zoo I've ever visited! Full of animals and different species, all in a beatiful natural landscape. Lions, jaguars, birds, horses, sheep, wolves, bears and more! I've visited the park this morning while it was snowing and that made the atmosphere even more impressive! In my opinion it's one of the best attractions in salisburg.It's not in the... More

We visited this zoo as an afterthought when we had some free time one afternoon and was so pleasantly surprised. It is quite small, but has a lovely range of animals. For us the first time ever to see snow leopards alive. They are incredibly beautiful ( would obviously prefer to see them in the wild, but we know the... More

This zoo, whilst very scenic in winter is not worth visiting. The big cats in particular are kept in enclosures way too small for them, mostly concreted, with only painted murals to reference their natural habitat. Other than the goats, alpacas and reindeer the rest of the animals look miserable. Don't go.

This is a great zoo with plenty of animals. There is even a black Jaguar. I had only saw those on television so it was a real treat for me. The Africa exhibit was much larger than I expected and they had 5 Rhinos. My daughter was probably the only one more excited than I was!
