Combine a visit to Schonbrunn Zoo, which houses more than 4000 animals from each continent, with a ride on the world-famous Giant Ferris Wheel for a memorable day out in Vienna.

The Baroque Architecture of Schonebrunn Zoo dates back to the days of Empress Maria Theresia and her husband Franz Stephan von Lothringen. The breakfast pavilion is situated in the center and emulates the historical beginnings of the zoo. Even today you can still enjoy an "Imperial Breakfast".

The Giant Ferris Wheel, trademark of Austria's capital city and a symbol of Vienna's world-famous Prater, creates a very special point of reference for every visitor with its unmistakable silhouette, clearly visible even from great distances. Its unique views of the city of Vienna can be enjoyed by visitors throughout the day.


  • Family friendly
  • Close encounter with wildlife

Apart from Berlin, The Schonbrunn Zoo in Vienna is the only place in Europe where you can see Giant Pandas. The two Giant pandas, Yang Yang and Long Hui who arrived in the Schonbrunn Zoo 2003, are on loan to the Republic of Austria by the People's Republic of China for a period of 10 years. According to the latest estimates, only one thousand Giant Pandas currently live in the wild.

Other top attraction include orangutans, jaguars, koalas, the first elephant born in Europe using artificial insemination techniques, Children's playground and petting zoo and a rainforest house modeled after the ecosystems of Borneo.

A circular trip on the Giant Ferris Wheel, one of the most significant and fascinating structures in the world, and the unique view of the city of Vienna, is an absolute cultural and architectural must for every visitor to Austria's capital.
