  • Excellent day to spend with your family and not only. You need full day and they have some nice restaurants there for lunch.

  • A very nice zoo with a great selection of animals. Many large exhibits offer a variety of vantage points. Logical layout so easy to see all of the zoo following the trails. Signs in German and English. Recommend buying tickets in advance or at the self service machines to avoid queues. Many places to buy snacks, meals, and drinks. Small play areas for children
  • Such a great Zoo! Make sure you go early enough because it is a rather big location and if you want to enjoy the whole thing you are going to need about 2-3+ hours. So many animals to see! And you can use the map they provide you with to plan out your exploration. Great location for little children and for couples! Don't miss out when you visit Vienna, since it's one of the oldest Zoos of Europe!
