  • The House of the sea is always worth a visit. The children marvel at the rays, the large sharks and smaller animals. Most, it inspires the fish tank with fish for petting. Also the canteen is in order. Don't forget to enjoy the view at the top!

  • It must recommend this facility where interest exists. To lock, there is a Cafetrie on a viewing platform and other snack bar on the 4th floor. The staff are very höflch and helpful. There are also feeding the animals, the times are posted.

  • We visited on a Sunday afternoon, and although the line consisted of families with young children, we reached the ticket office very quickly. If we had bought the ticket online, we could have skipped the line altogether. The place was magnificent. There were a lot of fish!! My expectations were a bit limited because I thought the building was too small for anything grand. But boy, was I wrong. On each floor, new layouts and themes were revealed, allowing you to live the thrill of discovery. I felt like a little kid again. Bonus historic room at the top floor, bonus x2 lovely Vienna skyline at the top floor. I highly recommend, although the price is a bit too much (18.5 euros per adult) and a bit too crowded in the weekend. A great place to go with your kid, but a good time for zoo lovers. See their website for more details.
  • This was one of the best experiences I had! Truly recommend it to anyone. There are two giant terrariums where you can walk among the animals (monkeys,birds tortoises). Amazing!
  • HIGHLY recommended!!! Free flying, tropical birds, bats, monkeys... Scorpions, crocodiles (not roaming freely!) and lots and lots of fish and other sea and fresh water creatures. The icing on the cake is the platform right at the top (more than nine stories high I think) from which the view over Vienna is fantastic. Seemed a bit pricey (payed 18 euro) but easily more than worth the money! ❤️🤗
  • REALLY MUST GO, especially if you have children. Quite interesting, it's worth it. Take time to learn things. EXCELLENT the view from its terrace. TIP. Do not drop it like us who visited it with the backpacks. It has lockers to leave your stuff and especially the jackets because it has very hot inside.
  • Beautiful place where you can spend whole day. With kids or without them it is very interesting and definitely worth to see in Vienna. Also nice for babys.
