Who said that visiting a city with children is difficult and boring? The Austrian capital is a child-friendly city, with many museums and exhibitions including lots of entertainment for the little ones, and places designed for the children’s needs where adults can rediscover the magic of childhood.
When the sun shines on the big urban parks or when the cold weather invades the city and people prefer to stay indoors, there are many opportunities to share with your children, such as a vegetarian lunch, shopping, and entertainment – all in an informal setting. Three exclusive locations are not to be missed, to discover something unique (for children aged 0 to 99): The Natural History Museum, Vienna Zoo and Orson Welles amusement park, the Prater.
MUSEUMS FOR EVERYONE
For all kids between the age of 8 months to 14, the ZOOM Children’s Museum in the Museums Quartier is a world of play and experimentation areas where children can touch, explore, feel and learn about artists and the great themes of science.
The Schönbrunn Zoo, founded almost 250 years ago, is the oldest zoo in the world with over 700 animal species. The most famous ones? Panda twins conceived in captivity, koalas, the Siberian tigress, hippos and rhinos, without neglecting desert and rainforest environments with their relative animals. The zoo is open 365 days a year and if you check the timetable on the website you can also attend animal talk and feedings or book an overnight visit.
At the Natural History Museum, children can wander around among the dinosaur and marine creature halls, while adults admire the breath-taking architecture of the building and the beautifully frescoed rooms. You can also go to the rooftop to enjoy a wonderful view and stop at the “morphing station” to see your face transformed into that of a primitive ancestor and send a postcard from the past by email!
One of the world’s most famous amusement park, with retro rides and modern roller coasters only suitable for the bravest. The 65-m tall Ferris wheel is an unforgettable experience to enjoy in comfortable luxury cabins (open all year round) but there are also 250 different attractions (open from March to October). If you want to relax after the fun, you can take a stroll in the Green Prater, with its vast lawns, trees and park trails.
While waiting to depart, there is an area dedicated to children – open 24 hours a day – at terminal 3. A huge slide, climbing wall, maze, and foam rubber snakes to play with. Changing tables for babies are available everywhere, while adults can relax in a quiet space while waiting for their flight.
If children are hungry, Yamm is a vegetarian, organic restaurant with locally grown products and a self-service buffet. You pay by weight and it is always open, from breakfast to dinner. You can also opt for take-away and eat at the park or keep the kids entertained at the indoor playroom.
A clothing collection for 0-12 years, exclusively Made in Vienna (and found only in the city). Clothes are hand made for children, colourful, comfortable and fun. For a casual, timeless style. The boutique also offers accessories and gift ideas.
Schönbrunn Zoo is the oldest in the world, but also one of the most modern. Various natural environments are recreated, from the desert to the Arctic, with their relative animals. Nowadays, it also boasts panda twins, Fu Feng and Fu Ban. Check the timetable if you want to feed the animals.
