Nice couple of hours

Nice couple of hours spent seeing the animals. Felt like the water needed a little cleaning in the water features but other than that was nice and interactive.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Alpine Zoo, it's a lovely zoo and very different to what we have seen before. Fantastic to ride up on the cable car as well then stroll leisurely down the mountain.

That's the best zoo we have ever seen. We are a couple, we went there because we were in innsbruck for the vacations, and we didnt think that it was going to be that cool!

This is a bit of a different zoo. The animals there are natural to the Alpine environment. This is a 'hiking' walk around up and around kind of zoo. Typical for the area, people like to trek. The exhibits are pretty roomy and the animals seemed well cared for. The black bears were both active, one was swimming and eating... More

This is one of the worst zoos we have visited. The entrance fee was reasonable at €10/adult and €2.50/5 for children. But you get what you pay for. The walking trail from Nordkette to the zoo was nice.

Small zoo located on the mountains - we took the cable car and got there pretty fast from the city center (Nordkette station next to the Theatre). You can get a combo ticket of 13€ for both the trip and the zoo. The zoo itself is quite fine, with a lot of paths going up and down the hill so... More

This zoo was way better than I expected, the animals were exciting and exotic if you've never seen a vulture or bear up close. We paid 13 euro to take the tram up to the zoo, there is a bus you can take as well. I would say that this suits all ages, but it's extra fun for the children.... More

Spent the morning at the Alpen Zoo, included on Innsbruck Card as is travel there and higher up the Nordkette. Well laid out zoo with interesting collection of animals. Had a coffee on the verandah. Great view!

The wife and I loved it, but after the first hour the kids got a little restless, despite all of the new sights around them. On a sunny day after the zoo walk, definitely go to the aquarium and amphibian display on level 1(?) near the entrance/exit..

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Alpine Zoo. I bought a ticket for a return cable car ride including the Alpine Zoo and it was so worth it! I was so delighted to see animals I'd never seen in real life before such as wolves. It's a small zoo but not too crowded which was nice. It was interesting... More
