OK so being from the South West area of the UK, I am familiar with Paignton Zoo, which, in my and many people opinion is fantastic. SO naturally, I was not expecting too much when visiting the Alpenzoo in Innsbruck. But we were in Innsbruck and the kids needed entertaining. So we headed up the hill to the Zoo. Pretty... More

I´ve been to the Alpenzoo plenty of times, and will certainly continue to do so. But to have that experience you need to know what to expect: It is a zoo that exhibits only animals that are currently living or used to live in the alpine region. So don´t go expecting lions and elephants. The layout is on a mountainside,... More

A fantastic zoo a long walk from the bottom or you can take the cable car. All of the animals are well cared for and a lot of room for them

What a view as we walked through the zoo seeing many animals our children had only read about before! Lovely enclosures, beautiful interactive experiences really mKing our kids think about what they were seeing.

As long as you are not expecting a large a zoo with exotic animals, this is a lovely way to spend a couple of hours. In February there were very few visitors and so could get up close to the animals. Particularly enjoyed the alpine ibex watching the young ones play - fight and butt horns. Beautiful views of the... More

we spent a great summers afternoon at the Alpen Zoo. The kids loved the mountain goats, eagles, owl and the bears. The poor moose looked depressed and bears continuously pace back and forward which is a bit sad. The kids playground at the end is amazing! Make sure you check out the self cleaning toilets above the farmyard...I've never seen... More

I was contemplating a moment if this a three of four star attraction. I decided it's three. Good thing is that it's not too large for smaller children and there are big, easily spottable animals. Especially the romestic animals with the feeding possibility is a spot on for kids. But if you have visited few zoo already this mighrt feel... More

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
