  • Best Zoo ever. Visit this Zoo in late March 2018. It is located in Vienna, in the gardens of the Schonbrunn Palace. The zoo is much bigger than you think, and you need a half day or a full day to visit it all. There you can find any kind of animals from rhinos to penguins, from lions to giraffes, from ants to snakes...and the list is never ending. There are special areas for penguins, alligators etc. There is also a big closed area which is the replica of a rain forest and its habitats. A real worth visit, especially for the young ones.
  • It is always a great day when I visit the zoo with a lot of happy people and families. The zoo itself is very well organized, very clean and the people working there are very friendly. There are a lot of offering for children - from the zoo train up to the playground where the parents have the possibility to rest and the children can run and play undisturbed.
  • With ViennaPass the entrance is free. Very enthusiastic place. As I saw the animals have enough space for walking. It has a large area. I mean gigantic... We walked for 3 or 4 hours there and the cause of lack of time we wasn't able to check everything... But I think it worth it :)
  • It’s a great zoo! We spent great time there and there is a very nice restaurant in the center of the zoo. There are very nice workers and good food.
  • Perfect place for children. They can spend a hole day there. Many interesting animals. Nice programs, good additional services.
