  • Absolutely stunning place. Animals all in great condition, all rescues or have been born there. Baby elephant entertained everyone, elephants and humans alike. Baby polar bear (not for visitor viewing but you could watch on a video). Wonderful experience not to be missed.
  • This was an amazing zoo. It is SO much bigger than it seems on the map, and they have so many animals, including a lot of animals you don't often see in zoos like the panda. The animals seemed really happy with lots of space, and I saw a lot of enrichment, which is a huge sign of a zoo that treats its animals well. I would highly recommend this zoo to anyone who comes to Vienna and likes animals.
