The Innsbruck card is a must, a no brainer, if you want to go up the mountain once.
The zoo was our next choice of activity, and we were both a little concerned about some of the conditions we might see.. All the animals seemed to be content, many were sleeping in the hot mid day sun. Most of the compounds looked interesting, in terms of their habitat, eg: rocky enclosure for the mountain goats!! Some of them looked small, especially for the bear and some of the larger birds but we are not experts, and they may have other places where they can remove themselves from public viewing! It is a little frenetic, and the map could have been better. Some of the younger kids were not that well behaved, but I blame the parents/guardians for that.
Overall, as part of the card, we enjoyed it and would recommend.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Alpen Zoo, feeding times are a great time to visit as most of the animals are out. The layout of the zoo is great as it takes you on a gentle stroll around the mountain side with great views of the city as well as the animals' enclosures. If you have an Innsbruck card it is free admission so try and squeeze it into your visit - the animals there are typically just ones that can be found in this region of Austria. The brown bear and the cats were a highlight for us! Afterwards we walked a few minutes to catch the funicular, and then cable cars, that took us up to the top of the Nordkette mountain, another journey included in the Innsbruck card!

Alpenzoo goes beyond the usual zoo. It's nice, well organised and animals seem to be well taken care of which, from my point of view, is the most important issue. It's not the typical zoo as you will only find native animals (bears, wolves, etc.). It's a nice and informative walk for kids and adults. You will need to have a couple of hours and comfortable shoes as you must walk. An obvious plus is the setting in the mountains and the view over the city.

The point of this zoo is to see the animals that are native to the area, but which you would be extremely lucky to spot in the wild. We (aults and children alike) really enjoyed seeing the bears, wolves, etc. The zoo is well laid-out so that it feels spacious, and has an imaginative playground. An added bonus is some great views over the city.
