What You Can Expect

Vienna's Schonbrunn Zoo and Giant Ferris Wheel

Visit the Vienna Zoo!

Admire the Baroque architecture as you enter Schonbrunn Zoo, dating back to the days of Empress Maria Theresia and her husband Franz Stephan von Lothringen. Check out the breakfast pavilion in the center where you can still enjoy an "Imperial Breakfast," if you choose.

Wander around the area’s many attractions, including koalas, jaguars, orangutans, elephants and the beloved giant pandas. After spotting some of your favorite creatures, head to the Children’s Playground and Petting Zoo for some extra fun for the kids, and stop by the rainforest mirroring the unique ecosystems of Borneo.

Then enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city with a trip on the Giant Ferris Wheel, an iconic symbol of Vienna’s Prater, the large public park in the 2nd district. The wheel is visible from all over the city with its distinct silhouette and offers incredible views of Vienna from the top. Hop on to enjoy this architectural gem from all angles.

The zoo was fabulous, we really enjoyed it and the wheel was great too. These 2 destinations aren't close together so you need to get to know the underground system to visit both. The printed voucher from aviator was accepted at Schonbrunn Zoo with no problem at all. The ticket from the zoo was a multi use ticket to include entry to the wheel. That ticket then needed to be swapped at the wheel ticket office for entry there.

the line to the ferris wheel was short and there was a carnival going on in the parking lot, which was a great time. The zoo was amazing

An excellent combination. The zoo is extensive so at least half a day is needed. The journey from the zoo to the ferris wheel is easy by metro but including walking to and from the stations you need to allow 45 minutes. Before the ride (which gives excellent views of the city) there's a very interesting exhibition.
