This is really nice place. Aquarium and nice view point to see the Vien from top. There were animals which I've seen for the first time. Clean and comfortable place. There is a restaurant at the top floor.
What a fantastic repurposing of a building!! Very well done although some vivarium and aquarium I felt were too small. The glass houses are FULL of animals, free roaming and flying, and very beautiful. Cafe OK, could be better but views outstanding. Shame the history of the flak tower is hidden away in side stairs but a very interesting pi trial history for those that find it. I would definitely recommend a visit. There is quite a lot of science undertaken but resident researchers so having more of there work shown would be good.
A wealth of creatures and habitats to explore. Such a great variety... So much more than fish although the fish were fantastic. Beautiful terrace at the top for great views over Vienna.
Plan on spending a few hours here because there is simply so much to see! We looked at snakes and frogs as well as fish of all descriptions, and look out for the leaf-cutter ants in the tubes... The viewing platform also gives a superb view over the city, and you can see for miles!
Really interesting place! The "zoo/collection" is built into a WWII bunker in the middle of Vienna. You must go there if you're into exotic animals like snakes, sea life and monkeys!
