The Alpenzoo is on the Nordkette line so if you are going up the mountain that way, it is an easy stop to make. It is also on the bus line. It is a relatively small zoo and contains only animals found in the Alps. This was great because we saw some of these animals in the wild earlier the... More

This zoo was really interesting as, for the most part it is home to indigenous animals from the region. Our kids loved it and their favourite section was the farm animals enclosure. The zoo is well kept and animals appeared to be very well cared for. A word of warning-like most zoos I have visited this one also has some... More

We are currently staying in Innsbrook and just returned from the Alpenzoo. Since we had bought the Innsbrook card we could visit the zoo for no extra charge so we decided to take our 2 young children there on our way down from the Nordkettenbahnen. The zoo was small with many steep hills, possible to visit within 60-90 min with... More

Innsbruck is beautiful but as such doesn't have many places of interest...so it's natural that this zoo is one of the touristy places. It's very well maintained and we had a fun time. There's a little cafe at the entrance and of course an ice cream cart (kids, zoo). Walk down from there to the old town. Nice 40 minute... More

Only needed 2.5 hours for the two of us to go though, but was super worth it! Amazing animals and well layed out. Make sure you wear good walking shoes as there is a lot of up hill and down hill walking

Find this difficult but didn't particularly liked this zoo ... The place looked to me as run down... Needs some spirit... Then again perhaps expectations were high - city zoos can be just a tad older ....

I was most disappointed to visit this zoo. It was so bad that I left after 15 minutes. I was expecting to see wild animals, but I saw beaver, harvest mouse. I did not even saw the bear!! There was a great view from the top of the mountain. That was it for me. I would not recommend this Zoo... More

The Zoo is situated in the mountains over Innsbruck which is a perfect place for showcasing the animal life of the alps. The zoo covers pretty much all of the animal kingdom from the Alps. Birds, mammels, fish, reptiles. Alpen Zoo is placed in a elevated park which means that you have to be able to walk up pretty steep... More

First don't expect a big city zoo!! I've been to San Diego Zoo..Brookfield and so on! It's not like them but it's a great zoo not just for small children! It's inexpensive and not a huge time commitment. You can get close to the animals and the staff makes an effort for them to be out for viewing. We saw... More

This zoo is fantastic, highly recommend it, nicely laid out up the alpine region. Yes there is a bit of walking up hill but as you go up you must go down follow the map from exhibit 1 to the end and you will be ok, wear comfortable shoes, lots of entertainment for the kids, there are a lot of...
