  • Except for the bear and a small aquarium, there wasn't anything special..
  • Amazing maintenance of animal enclosures! Made to mimic their respective natural habitats. Also, the zoo's location on the hill keeps the animals away from city crowd and sounds. Well done!!

  • In my opinion it is worth a visit if you have the time and the weather is nice. You can see a lot of the fauna of the alps and rhe giftshop is well selected. We came there by feet which is nice walk through Innsbruck 🙂
  • A complete zoo offering a good sight on the most know and common alpine animals. The COVID measures don't have an influence on your visit, only the occasional mouth mask may be needed for protection. Especially the Ibex's are very spectacular. Good shoes is advised, not only the long walk but also the height can be exhausting.
