This is a great zoo with plenty of animals. There is even a black Jaguar. I had only saw those on television so it was a real treat for me. The Africa exhibit was much larger than I expected and they had 5 Rhinos. My daughter was probably the only one more excited than I was!

We caught the num. 25 bus heading to the Untersbergcablebahnhof from Mirabel gardens. We got off at the Hellbrun stop and visited Hellbrun. Bus stops at the entry gate. The Salzburg zoo is walking distance away on the same bus route. The zoo is organised into continents with each section having displays of animals found in that region. So there... More

Took 16 and 5 year old sons. Spent around 4 hours there including lunch. It was raining for the first 2 hours but we still enjoyed it. Food to feed the animals cost €2.90 a pack. We bought 2 and all had fun with it. It's an unusual zoo due to its lay out - lengthwise along the bottom of... More

Add this to your itinerary while visiting Hellbrunn, especially if you have children in tow. We always try to make sure we incorporate some activities the kids choose while traveling and this was one of those. We had a great time seeing the animals and everyone was happy at the end of the day after our sightseeing. We had lunch... More

Not a fan of Zoo's but I did enjoy going around this one. The areas allocated for the animals were I felt a comfortable size. Never seen a wolf before and did so that was enjoyable. Bears were big and interesting as was the snow leopard. Plenty of animals to see and it looked and felt like a happyish place.... More

I hate to be a zoo name-dropper but I have been to many of the biggest and best - San Diego, Singapore etc. Therefore when I found myself at Hellbrunn with some time on my hands I thought - why not? And I'm so glad I did. There are many bonuses of this place (even on a sunny Saturday surrounded... More

The zoo is large and holds a wide selection of animals. The animals have large enclosures which makes it difficult to spot some of them. The kids enjoy the visit, but it may become tiresome for the little ones. There are free carriages you can use to transport the smaller kids. Best reachable by car, there is a free big... More

We've been to many zoos in many parts of the world. Unfortunately this one rated as one of our least favourite. The enclosures, whilst large enough, seemed a little overgrown and not looked after. The poor reindeer had a small and pitiful looking enclosure and the wild horses had no grass. The weirdest enclosure was the vultures, which just seemed... More
