A MICE trip is a success when the guests feel surprised, get inspired by the itinerary and go home with new energy and fresh ideas. Very often a surprising destination is the most important ingredient for such a trip. However, this does not mean that well known cities and destinations can not create this ‘wow’ effect. On the contrary. A good example is Vienna in Austria.

Vienna by night
Vienna is a popular city trip destination. It is the city of Schonbrunn, palaces, classical music and Sacher Torte. But there is more to discover. Much more. Not only at day time this city is a vibrant and inspiring place to stay. Also at night Vienna is full of suprises. Why not include a zoo-by-night visit in your MICE itinerary? Experience the oldest zoo in the world during the dark hours of the day with wild animals. Schönbrunn Zoo is not only part of the famous and world known Schönbrunn Palace, but also one of the best zoos in the world when it comes to Baroque-style, modern standards and habitat for over 700 species.

Nocturnal zoo experience
In the night time nocturnal animals wake up and the darkness spreads a very special vibe in part of the city. With night vision equipment, the visitors can experience a unique tour through the nocturnal wildlife. Wolves howl in the moonlight, Egyptian fruit bats embark on the search for food and the newly built world of the Polar Bears is a highlight in itself.

Exclusive event experience
This exclusive evening experience gets even more exclusive when entering the Baroque Kaiserpavillon, placed in the center of the zoo. This remarkable venue can be used as a location for an exclusive evening event in an imperial atmosphere. Enjoy majestic views on the zoo’s nightlife while having an exclusive dinner at the Kaiserpavillon.
