Tiergarten Schönbrunn has the privilege of being the only baroque zoo across the globe. It was constructed in 1760 as a summer residence and is located in the same area as the Schronbrunn Palace. Roman Emperor, Joseph II, travelled to America and Africa, in order to get animals for the zoo. In 1828, the place got its first giraffe, whereas the zoo got its first elephant on the 24th of July, 1906. The zoo was greatly affected by both, World War I and World War II, but is currently one of the well-kept zoos in the world, and is home to more than 500 species which includes elephants, pandas, hippos, and Siberian tigers. In the year 2010, the place opened up the Nature Experience Trail. The place offers an early package for guests where they get a chance to get in before the gates open for the public, and the “Night Vision Tour”, which starts after the dark. Schönbrunn Zoo is very famous amongst the locals as well as tourists, and the place receives almost 2 million visitors each year. It is a must go place for outdoor junkies and nature enthusiasts as it provides a great chance to experience the tropical wildlife.
