Schmiding

Upper Austria’s largest zoo, covering an area of some 120,000 sq m (30 acres), is based at Schmiding, 7 km (4 miles) north of Wels. This modern zoo, with giraffes, monkeys, crocodiles, exotic birds and 1,500 other animal species, is famous for its walk-in aviary with birds of prey — the world’s largest. A huge tropical house, an African savannah and Austria’s biggest colony of flamingoes are further highlights of the zoo. Children love the 5-m (16-ft) high platform which allows them to come face to face with the giraffes. The park lies at the foot of a castle dating from 1405. After World War II the castle served as a military hospital; it has since been restored and converted into apartments.
