Owner description: 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 oldest zoo in Europe”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The House of Hapsburg loved collecting and they started one of the first collection of animals. This is definitely a must for families, especially the giant pandas and sea lions. There original houses of the zoo are all in continual use which makes this zoo even more interesting.

“Great Showcase for Children (and Adults)”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Panda bears, kangaroos, and polar bears in a gorgeous, scenic setting are the highlights. Very good eateries and biergartens abound, not typical for a zoo.

“Great couple of hours at the zoo!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Had a great morning at the zoo. All the animals were in clean enclosures and none looked too small. Was very easy to get around and they had a lot of different animals in there too! Only thing I would say is that it wasn't too easy to find the initial entrance but as soon as we were in there the surrounding areas were very pretty. A great zoo to visit will not be disappointed !!

“Great Zoo!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We spent a lovely day at the Vienna Zoo.

It's really well set-up and the animals have a lot of space and seem to be very well taken care of.

It's also very large, so make sure to take at least half a day to spend there (one whole day would be even better)!

It was a wonderful adventure which we won't forget.
