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

Easily accessible from Innsbruck by the funicular.It is on a hill and on follow the winding paths from 600 m to 800 m where you can see the elks. 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!!

Quite an average zoo, maybe fun for children but not too much for adults. Its strictly average and the signage could be improvised a little bit.

Took the Funicular train from Congress Innsbruck, and its a most pleasant journey - although its mostly underground, so you don't get to see much. The Combination ticket I felt was good value. The Zoo has a system of following a path round, which appears to work well. In all I think we spent around 4 hours there. Has a... More

Very small Zoo, limited varieties (expected). But what was not expected is that you see only one or two animals if each kind in small cages. We were expecting to see the animals in an alpine environment. The animals looked miserable. I wouldn't recommend visiting, I am sure there are better places to visit in the area.

We are not really into zoos but as we had purchased an Innsbruck card we thought we would visit this one. We were pleasantly surprised with our visit and would recommend it to others, they have a good selection of mountain mammals and birds, kept in very spacious enclosures. We also enjoyed a snack at the cafe in the middle... More

If you want to see pandas and lions, you won't like it! But if you love mountain animals you will love it. They have lynxes, wolves, bears, wild cats and many more. It is a mountain zoo so you have to walk up and down but it is really nice.
