If you are sportpeople, not necessary to catch the funicular train. Do not go at 10-11 am the animals sleep !!! and you see nothing. We have been a small desappointed We prefer the Zoo of BEAUVAL in France. Sorry

Very hot walk in summer. Very hilly. Nice enough but I would skip it if I had anything else to do. Heard the wolves howled at noon but they didn't

Worth a stop on the way back from the nordketten. U won't be seeing any big/ wild animals but it's a nice zoo in the mountains. Do to forget to get your trainers/ walking shoes.. There is a lot of walking to do and it is huge.

We stopped through here on our way back down from the cable car trip. The zoo was very nice, lots of exhibits. We didn't get to appreciate it fully as our children were already tired from the trip up the mountain and it was a hot day, so we skipped though some parts. The brown bear was our favourite, you...

this has all wildlife that has been in the area-very interesting and well laid out above Innsbruck. Rightly popular with adults and children>the one concern was a single brown bear that seemed to have gone mad pacing up and down in the same way as if in distress. Really did not like that[ as I saw same behaviour in a... More

Up in the Alpine mountains, great views and loads to see. Wolfs and lions and local animals unique to Tirol. Not a massive zoo but worth a visit. Bring the kids

I planned the entire stay in Innsbruck for my boyfriend and myself. I myself am from Germany and have come to Innsbruck many times. For me it was a fixed plan to come to the zoo. This was my second time there, the first time visiting when I was ~12. I enjoyed it and my boyfriend enjoyed it a lot,... More

We took the funicular to the stop Alpenzoo thinking it would be right by the entrance. However, there was quite a long uphill walk to reach it whereas, if we had known in advance, we would have got te bus W which stops right outside and runs from the market place in Innsbruck. (We actually caught this going back and... More

You can get here by bus or by taking the nordketten train. It is still a bit of a walk uphill if you take the latter option. Furthermore, the whole zoo requires quite some effort, walking uphill! Not suited for buggies or elderly people. Few animals, not enough explanations about local fauna, in my opinion. They could do more, but... More

I really could give this a 5 except that the signage is terrible and we got caught moving circularly ... which here means a lot of up-steep-hill down-steep-hill. The funicular makes fairly easy access -- close for those without a car, but it is still a sizeable up-hill walk from station to entrance. And it is a long wait taking... More
