Vienna Sights

Tiergarten

Updated 08/26/2014

Fodor's Review

Claimed to be the world's oldest, this zoo has retained its original baroque design, but new settings have been created for both the animals and the public. In one case, you gaze out over a natural habitat from inside one of the former animal houses. The zoo is constantly adding new attractions and undergoing renovations, so there's plenty to see. A 25-year-old John Irving, living in Vienna at the time, used the Tiergarten as the setting for his first novel, "Setting Free

the Bears"

Baroque Meets State of the Art

Wonderful zoo - baroque on the outside, all mod cons on the inside. We went on a snowy day and saw pandas rolling in the snow! There are no bars and you are a glass width away from cheetahs, tigers and jaguars. Annimals are spotless. Wish they didn't have polar bears but these show no signs of distress. Have lunch in rotunda restaurant and enjoy the gardens.
