  • From the hotel, this impressive building (former flack Tower) was good to see. It was worth that we soon were on Sunday there - no snakes - all the more in the building behind glass. The whole system has been a great in the metre Tower. To highlight is that the House as a kind of Museum is run, reminiscent of the horrors of the war. The more prettier now that's dedicated to a peaceful purpose is. Created with love and care. Please bring your own time, it would be too bad if what Miss on 11 floors. Up on the 11th floor, there are great views with hosting - it doesn't get any better in Vienna. We will be back!

  • Pros: • Plenty sea animals to see e.g. Seahorses, frogs, tortoises, snakes • Interesting glass tunnel of various fish Cons: • Lack of oxygen, humid • Most animals were asleep • Elevator takes forever ...  more »
  • We arrived at noon. It expected us a 15-metre queue which was ok because the House has reached the capacity. That was super in there not many people were. The pool and the animals were super. Man may stroke the fish and monkeys were running around just so. It was really nice. Everything is already expensive but you can accept

  • A little bit crowded but I liked it. This is what I call interactive. Maybe a little more warning about the flying bats, I have no fear of them, actually I like them but I assure not everybody. Summary, it is a very interesting place. Must visit.
  • Very Nice Aqua Zoo in the middle of Vienna, Beautiful Animals and very nicely done - the location is an old Air Defence Tower from WWII and it is a great use for an old Building like this. Great for Families - A nice view from the top of the tower over the whole City
  • Usually very busy when its raining. Tip: get a annual ticket to avoid long queues at the ticket desk. Great views from the terraces at top. Lots of marine (and land) animal wild life, plan on spending at least half a day if you want to see everything. Great for kids.
  • Visited on a Monday afternoon and it was not crowded at all. Amazing aquarium housed in an old Flak Tower from WWII with stunning views of Vienna. Creative and naturalistic exhibits with very active reptiles. The chameleons and the seahorses are a must see! Worth the price.
  • Please read if you are wondering, if to go or not. First of all, the line took about an hour to get in. Then, the prices also shocked us. Walking through we also noticed bad quality, which you are paying a lot for. To be honest, there isn't that much, better off going to the zoo. Very disappointed for the price. The place is also filled with dead-ends, so it is very crowded and people are trying to squeeze through, a lot of the time. Definately won't be going again.

Where to stay in Vienna

As a former imperial capital, Vienna is full of lavish hotels reminiscent of the city’s royal past. If you’re traveling on a budget, it’s not hard to find hotels for a more affordable price. Consider staying in the Innere Stadt, or First District, if you only have a short time in town, as you’ll be within easy walking distance to many of the city’s main tourist attractions. Outside of the central core, Leopoldstadt, or Second District, lines the Danube and offers peaceful walks through tree-lined paths. For shopaholics, Mariahilf, or Sixth District, is a central neighborhood with busy shopping streets and lively markets.
