The Alpine Zoo

What could be nicer on a quiet, sunny day than a trip to the zoo with the family, your partner or even on your own? The Alpine Zoo is on the sunny side of the Inn Valley, directly at the foot of the Nordkette and above the rooftops of Innsbruck. The zoo is the only one of its kind worldwide. Europe’s highest-lying zoo (750m) is also easy to get to. It is not far from the city centre – a short walk will take you directly there. However, if you are not in the mood for walking, you can take the bus or the modern Hungerburg Funicular. The funicular has its own station very close to the zoo entrance and is very popular among families.

The Alpine Zoo
2000 different animals

2000 different animals

There are many different animals waiting to be seen at the zoo – lynx, eagles, fish, birds as well as wolves and bears. The lovingly laid out zoo covers an area of 4 hectares and is home to around 2,000 animals from 150 different species. The animals live in enclosures which have been specially designed to resemble conditions in the wild. Spring is a particularly interesting time to visit because that is when young animals are born – there is usually a lot going on! At the petting area, rare and local species of cows, pigs, goats and sheep can be seen up close.

One of the highlights is definitely the bears. Fortunately we do not often encounter these shy animals in the wild, but you can visit “Martina” and “Ander” any time at the Alpine Zoo.
