Full description
Experience one of the most incredible zoos in the world: the Schönbrunn Tiergarten, first opened in 1752. The Vienna Zoo dates from imperial times and links the medieval with the modern, something especially noticeable in the beautiful Baroque octagonal breakfast pavilion, just a single part of the extraordinarily diverse architectural heritage of Vienna.

The zoo features numerous recreations of habitats from all over the world and is home to more than 4,000 animals, including elephants, koalas, giraffes, and giant pandas. Apart from the Berlin Zoo, Schönbrunn is the only place in mainland Europe to see pandas. The two representatives of this endangered species in Vienna, Yang Yang and Long Hui, arrived at the zoo in 2003.

The zoo, situated on the grounds of Schönbrunn palace, also has a rainforest house and an aquarium. Children of all ages will enjoy the petting zoo, where they can get close to the cuddliest of the animals, and very little ones can run around in the play park.

Daily feeding session times: 10:30 - Sea Lions, 11:00 - Northern Rockhopper penguins, 11:30 - Peruvian penguins, 13:00 - Oriental Small-clawed otters, 13:30 - Northern Bald Ibis, 14:30 - Giant anteaters, 15:30 - Sea lions, 16:00 - Koalas

Fabulous setting enjoyed a stroll around the palace gardens before the visit to the zoo. Very quiet in the zoo at this time of year though we managed to see plenty of animals. Got very close to the pandas unfortunately didn’t see polar bears nor giraffes the latter due to enclosure being cleaned.

zoo is great

we bought tix through this site my only complaint is you have to print the voucher then get a ticket from the stand so defeats the purpose of getting tickets early also the whole printing is a pain if staying in an airbnb the zoo is super cute and so pretty. there’s lots of animals enclosures a little small but pretty to see. it’s also doable not overwhelmingly big and the area around there is spectacular
