Alpine Zoo Innsbruck Tyrol

Alpine wildlife – unique worldwide

At the foot of the Nordkette, high above the roofs of the capital of Tyrol, the Alpenzoo Innsbruck (750 m) stretches out with its approximately 2000 animals from 150 species. Discover the animal world of Tyrol and some exotic animals from all over the world. At the Alpenzoo Innsbruck you will learn everything about flora and fauna – up close and personal. A special highlight is the journey to the Alpenzoo Innsbruck with the Hungerburgbahn cable car located in the city centre.

The Zoo in the Alps

As a so-called “theme zoo”, it offers the world’s largest collection of animals from the Alpine region in its naturalistic enclosures, terrariums and cold-water aquarium with around 50 Alpine fish species. Elk and bison, which were still at home in Tyrol after the last ice age, can also be found in the Alpine Zoo. The public favourites bear, wolf and lynx are also present, as are ibex, chamois and snow hare. From the bird world, a great variety can be seen, from its smallest representative, the goldcrest, to the largest bird in the Alps, the mighty bearded vulture. Endangered breeds of domestic animals are shown at the show farm, and the “bear children’s playground” rounds off a successful visit to the Alpine Zoo for our little animal friends!

The Alpine Zoo in Innsbruck – the special animal experience for the whole family, especially in the warm season when the animal world of the Alps shows its adorable side with its offspring.
