Schönbrunn Zoo is the oldest continuously operating zoo in the world and it is in Vienna !
Where is it?
it is along with Schönbrunn zoo located near the end of the metro line U4. For the palace you can get down at the station “Schönbrunn”.
How to get there?
For the zoo either you can get down at the U4 station Schönbrunn and walk through the palace garden to the zoo. Or you can get down at the U4 station Hietzing and walk a little to the zoo.
You can buy a day ticket. At the moment the cost is 20 Euro per adult. But if you are staying in Vienna I would recommend the year pass which costs 49 Euro per adult. With the yearly card you can visit any number of times !
For the complete information check out the website https://www.zoovienna.at/en/zoo-and-visitors/visitor-information/.
There are quite a number of animals. You would need an entire day. My favorite spots are :
Aquarium – just near the entrance
Oh and if you have the NÖ card then you can 2 more attractions in the same area.
- Schönbrunner Panoramabahn
- Wüstenhaus Schönbrunn – You can visit this as many times as you want with the card.
