Wüstenhaus

Zoo in Schloss Schönbrunn & Around

In the former Sonnenuhrhaus (Sundial House; 1904), the small Wüstenhaus re-creates arid desert scenes. There are four sections – Northern Africa and the Middle East, Africa, the Americas, and Madagascar – with rare cacti and live desert animals, such as the blacktail rattlesnake from North America and radiated tortoise from Madagascar.
