Family trip to Vienna with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Vienna 2011 In Vienna, young travelers and their parents will easily find interesting entertainment and amusement centers. There are also suitable city landmarks and museums that will leave families excited. ZOOM Museum is an excellent example of such a place.

Some halls remind of usual playrooms with special educational programs for small visitors. The museum is targeted at children of different age, so parents with both small kids and school-age children will not be disappointed.

Guests will see elephants, tigers, hippos, turtles, and many other animals – there are more than 500 species in total. Visitors can make their visit to the zoo even more diversified by attending various amusement areas with superb labyrinths and playgrounds for children of different age.
