If you visit Schönbrunn, you can do much more than “just” visiting a magnificent castle surrounded by a giant park. One of the most fantastic things you can do as you visit Schönbrunn is to visit the zoo, one of the oldest zoological gardens in the world. Inside the Zoo of Schönbrunn, you can see giraffes, elephants, pandas, tigers, lions, birds, zebras, penguins, bats, spiders, and many other small and large animals. The territory of the Zoo is quite big, so you better prepare to spend a couple of hours here if you first enter.
Many exceptional activities are available daily that will spice your visit even more. There are daily events where you can watch the zookeepers as they feed elephants, sea lions, penguins, koalas, tigers, wolves, and many other animals. You can get more exact information as you arrive at the park or find exact information on the home page of the zoo.
