Really enjoyed visit here. Very interesting and really great to see other animal and birds flying/running free and not caged in well worth a visit for adults and children. Fantastic views of city from top floor

Pleased to see that birds were allowed to roam relatively freely. Was not too sure about the spiders in the “red lit” room as they had no space whatsoever to move. All round a positive experience but the spider section was slightly irritating. Great use...More

Great place for kids and even for adults. The small details like the ants in the railing were great fun to discover.

The best and most exciting zoo that I have seen. I also got an overview of the beautiful Vienna from the rooftop!

Vienna’s sixth district hosts high street shopping
heaven and pedestrian area Mariahilfer Strasse. The
weirdest local building is probably the city aquarium
Haus des Meeres, housed in one of Vienna’s six
remaining World War II defense towers, and topped with
a rooftop bar that offers stunning views over Vienna
and the centre. One of the most historic sites in the
area is the passageway of 18th century Raimundhof with
