The zoo is well laid out, the enclosures generous and animals well looked after. It is set on the side of the Nord Ketter and is spectacular. There are a lot of picnic areas. Easy to get there on the "W" bus from the city.

It is a great little zoo. It offers multiple views of the animals, up close in great habitats, so you can actually see the animals doing their things. It takes about 2 hours to complete (we crammed it to a little over an hour because we were rushed on time before closing), and is free on the Innsbruck Card. They... More

I was so pleasantly surprised by this zoo. The animals were all so healthy with large areas to roam. It was great to see the representation of the animals who live in the Alps, and to be provided with helpful information about each one. The location was beautiful.

Zoo dedicated to the Alpine wildlife. It's built on a mountain side so be prepared to climb a fair bit! Very well maintained and organised parc. Nice variety of animals. Especially the snake terrariums are very cool as is the acquarium/fish pond. A really nice day out for kids and grown ups.

As far as zoos go and the breadth of wildlife this doesn't rank up there with major zoos but the uniqueness of the terrain that it occupies makes this a worthwhile stop especially if you bought the Innsbruck card which gives free admission

The animals are indigenous and the environment really works to showcase the animals. It is also fun - with spielplatz etc.

The kids gave this a 5 and us adults gave it a 3, and thus the average to a 4 rating. Having been to the great zoos in San Diego there really is no comparison. However, it is a great activity to do with kids and ours loved the break from regular sightseeing. It really should be called the hiking... More

We spent a lovely four hours or so here. It is located on the side of Norkettan and using the train from Congress is a great way to get here. There is a short walk to the entrance but you can try to get through with your combined tickets. Follow the number system to see the animals and stop off... More

Very nice surroundings, very nice view and very well organized. Many people go for a daily excursion there. Mostly Alpine animals and birds and those who can live in cold weather.Very... More

It's not the best zoo, we went about 7 houses in before we saw any animals but the children enjoyed the break from sightseeing. It's ok and free with the Innsbruck card. I cannot stress how good value this card is!!
