Vienna Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn) Tours

39 reviews
Set against a backdrop of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn) is the world’s oldest zoo, dating back to 1752. Today, the park houses some 750 species, including rhinos, polar bears, and pandas, and focuses on the conservation and protection of endangered species.
 
The Basics
General admission to Vienna Zoo includes access to all exhibits, including daily zookeeper talks and feedings. Guided tours, night tours, and safari dinners are also available. Vienna PASS holders enjoy admission to the zoo and other city attractions, as well as a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Vienna. Combination tickets are also available, including entrance to the Palm House and Desert House, entrance to Schönbrunn Palace, or a ride on Vienna’s Giant Ferris Wheel (Wiener Riesenrad).
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Lines can be long, especially in peak season (July and August), so it’s best to book your tickets in advance.
  • On-site facilities include small storage lockers, gift shops, drinking fountains, and a range of restaurants and cafés.
  • The zoo is accessible for wheelchair users and those with limited mobility.
  • The Schönbrunn Panorama Train links the many attractions of Schönbrunn Park, including the zoo, the palace, and Gloriette Hill. Passes are valid all day.
 
How to Get there
Tiergarten Schönbrunn is located in Schönbrunn Park, and it’s a short walk from Schönbrunn Palace along signed trails. To get there from downtown Vienna, ride metro line U4 to Hietzing station. Trams 10, 58, 60, and 61 also run to the palace.

When to Get There
The zoo is open daily year-round. July and August are the busiest months, but it can get crowded on weekends and public holidays throughout the year, so make an early start to avoid lines. Most keeper talks and feedings only take place once a day, so be sure to check the schedule in advance if there is a particular animal you are most interested in.
 
Animal Sightings at the Schönbrunn Zoo
The zoo is home to about 8,500 animals, including tigers, jaguars, koalas, elephants, hippos, Siberian tigers, giraffes, a huge variety of birds, monkeys, reptiles, and insects. Watch orangutans in the ORANG.erie, observe polar bears swimming from Polar World’s underwater viewing area, and admire the Rainforest House, a living recreation of a tropical rainforest. The zoo also houses giant pandas, with the birth of cub twins Fu Feng and Fu Ban making headlines in 2016.
