Schönbrunn Zoo

Vienna, Austria

The oldest zoo in the world has in recent decades turned itself into one of the most modern and - by general consensus - one of the most beautiful zoos in the world.

The animal compounds of the 250 years old zoo have a particularly generous and natural design. More than 500 - some highly endangered - animal species live here: from Siberian tigers and hippos to one-horned rhinoceroses. Other Highlights: the Koala House, the lion pen, the South America Park, the aquarium and terrarium with coral reef and the "Polarium." Furthermore, the Zoo ORANG.erie - the home of the orang-utans - and the Rain Forest House where you and your children can marvel at the vast range of flora and fauna from Borneo.

The Nature Experience Trail with a fire salamander climbing wall and a cobweb for clambering will also capture the hearts of young visitors. So will the Treetop Trail - a dizzying 160 meter long rope bridge 10 meters above ground.
