Founded in 1752 by the Empress Maria Theresia as a “menagerie”, Schönbrunn is the oldest zoo in the world and not only part of the UNESCO world heritage Schönbrunn, but also voted the best zoo in Europe in 2012. More than 700 animal species, some of them endangered, have their home here in a perfect harmony between protected historical buildings and modern zoo-keeping.
