This is a lovely little zoo (if a little hilly!) which can be reached by car, on foot or on the fernicular(?) railway. There are plenty of animals and birds to see and all in all a great day out and a bargain at only 8 euros

With lot of enthusiasm we went to the alpen zoo, and what we see are some cows, hens flying over the barn.. Overall, its a place best skipped.

We visited this zoo as we came down on the funicular and was included in the Innsbruck pass but as it was spring time we did not see as many animal as we would expect at warmer times.

Okay - this is a very small zoo and is quite a hike from the funicular. But - we thought why not - the admission is also included in the Innsbruck Card. While I will not say that the zoo is a must see - it actually was enjoyable. I quite enjoyed the very small and dark aquarium room with... More

The zoo is clearly well-known to locals but I was the only tourist in the place. Not suitable for disabled as some of the paths are very steep and not too well paved, but it's worth the effort. Lots of animals, reptiles and birds, all from the Alps, plus a pretty garden setting.

Although I visited on a dreary, drizzly day, it was still a nice zoo visit. i typically do not care for zoos because of the unnatural settings for the animals, but this was different. It is small and contains only alpine native animals - and they're all in lovely areas of natural terrain. i didn't see a few of the... More

A great zoo for everyone. We had two small kids who enjoyed seeing the animals, the petting zoo area, and the kids play park. If you are coming from downtown on the cable cars it is technically the 2nd stop, but the first on the north side of the river. From there it is about 800 meters to the zoo.... More

Buy the Innsbruck Card and you can enjoy the Nordkettenbahn trip up the mountain for gorgeous panoramic view of Innsbruck, and perhaps a snowball fight at the top of the cable car ride. On the way back down, stop for a bite to eat in the little bar you must pass by while changing cars. I had the best soup... More

A great variety of regional fauna with a few exceptions. We would recommend visiting this special zoo on your way back from the Nordekettenbahnen, specially if you have an Innsbruck Card.

We spent a beautiful morning at the zoo yesterday. We missed the bus stop (rudest bus driver ever refused to answer which stop the zoo was). We really enjoyed walking back down the hill to the zoo as the views of Innsbruck were fantastic. Most of the animals were out and active, the moose sitting very close to the path.... More
