This zoo is built on and around a mountain. It has only animals that live in alpine habitats.
I couldn' t find the time to visit it on my first visit to Innsbruck. I had read lots of info about this zoo and I thought it was a very interesting and funny place. Unfortunately it turned out to be a real tourist trap for me.
I was given a map of the zoo. I walked and climbed a lot there. I was able to spot only a few
animals. Some birds, a couple of hyenas, several savage cats, some owls and other animals.
I couldn' t see the bears. Later the cashier told me there was only a bear at the zoo. I can' t imagine where it was.
I bought the Innsbruke card so I can't complain much about the admission fee of Alpen Zoo - but if you are thinking of going, forget it.
One word: MEDIOCRE
And the so-called souvenir shop is full of animal soft toys made in China.
