  • Attention: Here you should not take his own animal say his dog! I find it very contradictory. A zoo where you can take an animal? But you can see the animals inside at the partially outdated, not animal-friendly enclosures in the Zoo!

Where to stay in Innsbruck

The Alpine gem of Austria, Innsbruck offers a surprising amount of reasonably priced accommodations for its size. Look for hostels and hotels in the medieval center. Another option is to stay above the city on the Hungerburg Plateau, where you’ll find Alpine hotels with panoramic views from each room. If you're traveling on a budget, look for lodging in private homes throughout the city: rent a room or the entire house for a local stay.
