We stopped on the funicular at the Zoo. It was a good place to see so many animals. It was snowy and slushy under foot, but the animals were used to this sort of weather. It was not crowded and we could move around easily. A good place to visit, we enjoyed it.

Nice zoo and worth a visit if you are in Innsbruck and plan to go up to Hafelekar. The entry is free to the zoo if you have taken the Innsbruck Day card which also allows you access to public transport and the cable car and train. You might want to visit the zoo before the reptile go into hibernation... More

I didn't have high expectations because I though how many animals will be out and about in the cold during December. But we were pleasantly surprised as we did manage to see quite a lot of animals. There were otters, wolves, mountain goats, moose (or perhaps they were elks?), vultures and then a lovely farm-yard with the more traditional farm... More

This was such a wonderful place to see. Even though it was snowing and freezing cold these wonders of nature still came out and wondered about. The bear had such a character as did the cats, and the wolf, and all the animals I felt lucky to see. A great day

This place isn't really like other zoos I have visited, because It only has animals from the local area, so alpine animals like otters, beavers, elk, lynx, wolves, vultures etc. This gives it an authentic feel. The zoo is laid out up the hillside, and is perhaps not suitable for wheelchair users, but is a fun adventure for families. I... More

This is a great zoo in the heart of the alps. You can easily reach it by hiking from the city center, or more conveniently use the bus W or the Hungerburg cable car. You also can go there by car and pay a parking fee, but I prefer walking, as it is a good climb, which basically continues once... More

Dropped in to Alpenzoo in October 2014. This time is considered the off-season so for while my partner and I were the only people in the zoo! It wasn't until we were almost finished that we saw another person. It was great! If you buy the Innsbruck card (which I highly recommend), entry to the zoo is free. Access to... More
