Schönbrunn Zoo (Tiergarten Schönbrunn) is the world's oldest and only baroque zoo. The Schoenbrunn Zoo is situated in the south-eastern part of the Habsburgs' summer residence and was built in 1760.
What makes the zoo so special is the keeping of animals after their specific requirements and the simultaneous emphasis of the baroque heritage. The historical buildings are restored by experts of international reputation under the supervision of the conservation authorities and serve present-day purposes without any defeat of its fascination.
In Mai 2003 Schönbrunn zoo was greatly honored by being
entrusted with the care of a pair of Chinese Great Pandas!
Tropical Vienna: Schönbrunn zoo is proud of its tropical piece of Borneo and presents colourful orchids, mangrove woods, miniature rice plantations and even tropical storms complete with hard rain, lights, thunder and fog. Vienna's Imperial castle houses exotic butterflies in a marvellous art-deco glass house!Schönbrunner Tiergarten Maxingstraße 13b, A-1130 Vienna
