Panda at the Schönbrunn Zoo

Schönbrunn Zoo

The animal compounds of the 250 years old zoo have a particularly generous and natural design. More than 500 - some highly endangered - animal species live here: from Siberian tigers and hippos to one-horned rhinoceroses. Other Highlights: the Koala House, the lion pen, the South America Park, the aquarium and terrarium with coral reef and the "Polarium." Furthermore, the Zoo ORANG.erie - the home of the orang-utans - and the Rain Forest House where you and your children can marvel at the vast range of flora and fauna from Borneo.

The Nature Experience Trail with a fire salamander climbing wall and a cobweb for clambering will also capture the hearts of young visitors. So will the Treetop Trail - a dizzying 160 meter long rope bridge 10 meters above ground.

Do you want to experience a tropical thunderstorm in the rainforest house? Or watch how cheetahs and jaguars consume their prey? Or see how penguins and seals are fed? This is where you'll find feeding times and other dates.

Hungry? Café-Atelier Nonja, the Imperial Pavilion and the Tirolergarten pamper hungry visitors.

Tip: Anyone who has run out of steam should hop on the Panoramabahn sightseeing train for a tour of the zoological gardens. Excellent views of the city below await from the Gloriette in the extended tour of the Schlosspark. Vienna-Card
