Further information

The majority of facilities at Schönbrunn Zoo are barrier-free. Disabled parking spaces are available in the Seckendorff-Gudent-Weg car park next to the Tirolergarten entrance to the Zoo. The path from the Tirolergarten entrance down to the main part of the zoo is very steep and is not suitable for wheelchair users. It is therefore recommended that wheelchair users take the tree-top trail (Baumkronenpfad). Please note that it is sometimes necessary to close this trail due to weather conditions.

There are disabled toilet facilities with barrier-free access in the ORANG.erie, the elephant house, the rainforest house, the big cat house and the Tirolerhof farmhouse.

A Euro toilet key is required to use the disabled toilets at the Hietzing and Neptune Fountain entrances. A key can be borrowed from the ticket offices at these locations.
