Vienna's Schonbrunn Zoo and Giant Ferris Wheel
From US$26,60
Low Price Guarantee
Check out two of Vienna’s top attractions with a visit to Schonbrunn Zoo and a ride on the famed Giant Ferris Wheel. See over 4,000 animals from every continent at the zoo, as well as the popular giant pandas. Then take a spin on the trademark of Austria’s capital city, the Giant Ferris Wheel, and enjoy spectacular city views from the top.
What to Expect
Admire the Baroque architecture as you enter Schonbrunn Zoo, dating back to the days of Empress Maria Theresia and her husband Franz Stephan von Lothringen. Check out the breakfast pavilion in the center where you can still enjoy an "Imperial Breakfast," if you choose.

Wander around the area’s many attractions, including koalas, jaguars, orangutans, elephants and the beloved giant pandas. After spotting some of your favorite creatures, head to the Children’s Playground and Petting Zoo for some extra fun for the kids, and stop by the rainforest mirroring the unique ecosystems of Borneo.

Then enjoy a bird’s-eye view of the city with a trip on the Giant Ferris Wheel, an iconic symbol of Vienna’s Prater, the large public park in the 2nd district. The wheel is visible from all over the city with its distinct silhouette and offers incredible views of Vienna from the top. Hop on to enjoy this architectural gem from all angles.
