This is a great zoo in the heart of the alps. You can easily reach it by hiking from the city center, or more conveniently use the bus W or the Hungerburg cable car. You also can go there by car and pay a parking fee, but I prefer walking, as it is a good climb, which basically continues once... More

Dropped in to Alpenzoo in October 2014. This time is considered the off-season so for while my partner and I were the only people in the zoo! It wasn't until we were almost finished that we saw another person. It was great! If you buy the Innsbruck card (which I highly recommend), entry to the zoo is free. Access to... More

A nicely presented zoo, with interesting habitats and animals that aren't your normal zoo fare. Focusing totally on native Alpine animals dovetails nicely with the location. Beware, though: the zoo is built on the side of the mountain and requires a lot of walking up and down slopes. Coupled with the altitude, some may have issues. Definitely not great for... More

Not such a surprise of course, zoos are always sad, but there was a bear and it they did was nervously run around its cage, and bang on walls, and that's just depressing and awful... The zoo isn't bad, cages are ok, the location is on the mountains and it does give a resemblance of nature, but that bears was... More

This was so much better than I thought it would be. It was an easy tour and the animals were great! We really enjoyed ourselves. :)

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
