Owner description: Zoo Vienna, the oldest existing zoo in the world founded in 1752. Schonbrunn Zoo was voted Europe's best in 2008, 2010 and 2012. Schonbrunn Zoo is the perfect place for a journey into the fascinating world of the animal kingdom. Open year round, it combines the highlights of the natural world with an unparalleled history as the world's oldest and Europe's best zoo. It is part of Schonbrunn as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage listed site and home to more than 700 species of animals. Marvel at the Giant pandas, tigers, orangutans, koalas and elephants, immerse yourself in the magic of the Amazon and feel the heat of a tropical rainforest in the heart of Europe. Moderated feeding sessions, guided tours and a trip aboard the panorama train turn a trip to the zoo into an unforgettable experience.

Zoo is near Schoenbrunn Palace so you can visit two place in one trip. You will need several hours to fully see every animal there.

Great zoo but there are huge distances between the animals. The best part is that there are pandas :)

Nice are to go out, but somehow disappointing in contents. Areal is not excessive, and species diversity is moderate. Also often it seems that animals have small space.

Excellent layout. This zoo gives you an easy view of all their own animals without them being stuck in small little cages. I must admit I went to the zoo to see the pandas but due to the recent birth of some baby pandas, the pandas were not on show. This definitely didnt ruin my trip. Loved every minute.

The zoo is outside of Vienna accessible by Underground and buses. It is next to the Schoenbrunn Palace. We purchased the tickets on line before we went to Vienna and could walk straight through the gate. It is quite expensive but the zoo is spacious for all the animals and a lot of them are either rescue or endangered species like the Giant Pandas. We saw them at feeding time, but be aware the times they put up are not always accurate. We happen to notice a crowd about 2pm when they should have been fed at 2:39pm by which time they were back in their respective house where you can see them through the glass but they are usually asleep. There are a few bar/cafes there as well. One nice one by the Meerkats and Penguins.
