  • It is one of the few places where adults to accompany children/kids, pay more than they do. Otherwise well laid out although the heat many animals were in the inland areas, which are also visible, to sleep.

  • What an amazing in zoo it is! I saw different varieties of species here. Zoo is maintained well and all animals are healthy. Area of the zoo is very big and it takes 4 to 5 hours to complete the zoo. Lush green surrounding gives the feel of natural habitat. There is awesome aquarium inside with varieties of fishes. Good food options also available.
  • Very big, with a wide range of animal species. Great restaurants for when you need a break. Animals are well taken care of, grounds are nicely maintained. Great place to take your children
  • Pretty, great. Worth about 3 hrs for €19. Pretty good representation, and it doesn't look like the animals are mistreated, at least not more than any other city zoo. Not huge, but very fun.
  • Best zoo garden in all of Europe no doubt! You can see anything you've ever dreamed off..the pandas are absolutely stunning! The price is worth every cent!
  • It is a truly amazing zoo. I spent 4hrs here as I tried to see all the animals. The animals have excellently enclosures and are well taken care of, are not extremely coy and are often visible. They offer good information about the animal in wild habitats and promote education and conservation efforts from governments and not profits. The zoo also has restaurants and children play areas as well as fun souvenir shops. IT IS COMPLETELY WORTH your time and money!!

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.
