  • I have visited many different cities and the zoo's that they have, but this place is a disgrace, poor enclosures that look uncared for and so few exhibits to see. I only gave it one star as they will....  more

  • With a wide variety of animals, incredible architecture and impressive landscape, the Schönbrunn Zoo is, in my opinion, the most impressive zoo on the continent. The animals are always happy and somewhat free, which makes you feel like you are right in the middle of them, living in a weird jungle. I've been quite a few times already , but I've grown to love it more and more every time.
  • 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
