  • The enclosures are very overgrown and the animals have to be searched. And which occupy a large area (for example polar wolves or hyenas) in general only in the viewfinder camera saw. And the traffic pattern is not convenient. Without a card, you can skip the enclosures. Few representatives of animal species are mostly in pairs.

  • If you are in Vienna, you should definitely take half a day (preferably more) to see this exceptional location. You don't necessarily have to go inside. Wandering around and enjoying the view is more than worthwhile.

  • This place is amazing. When you leave a place and you kids tell you: we would like to work in this zoo when we grow up, you feel I have done the best decision ever to go and visit it! Thank you for leaving such good memories into our kids mind 💕 Pictures taken by son 5 years old **
  • I'm normally against the whole concept of Zoo's but this one is a bit different. First, they focus on conservation and have various programs and projects. Second, the cages are really roomy and the animals looks like they are really taken care of. Third, the Verity is really something else. Had a really good time with the kids. Recommended.
