twelve things to keep in mind when Visiting  Vienna Zoo

Duration required

It will take four to five hours to explore Vienna Zoo if you visit with kids and plan to see all the animal exhibits. Yet, most animal exhibits can be covered in two hours if you are a bunch of adults.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Vienna Zoo is when they open at 9 am. Since the animals are most active in the morning, they are more visible and may recede to shaded areas as the day gets hotter.

In winter

Winter visits to Vienna Zoo have less crowds and get a closer look at the animals. Animals are more active in warm indoor enclosures, and the cooler temperatures do not bother many animals.

Wear comfortable shoes

Vienna Zoo is spread over 160 hectares of land and is an outdoor attraction with a lot of walking, so wear comfortable shoes for a better experience.

Bring water

The weather can be quite hot, especially during the summer. So, bringing water to stay hydrated throughout the visit is important.

Food & Drinks

There are several restaurants and cafes inside the Vienna Zoo. Take a break and refuel your energy with some delicious food.

Book in advance

Booking the Vienna Zoo ticket online in advance is at least 10% cheaper than the tickets available at the zoo and saves time by skipping the long queue at the counter.

Standard tickets

While buying online tickets, you can book them in advance or buy same-day tickets. Since it is not a timed ticket, you can reach the zoo whenever convenient.
