Innsbruck Alpine Zoo
All kinds of mountain animals from the Alpine regions are to be seen, and the beautifully situated zoo has become very popular with both experts and tourists alike. A total of 2 000 animals from 150 different Alpine species are kept in the zoo, which also includes the world's largest cold-water aquarium. The opening took place on the 22th September 1962. The zoo is one of the most popular sights of Innsbruck. It was Helmut Pechlaner who increased the fame and popularity of the Alpenzoo.
Not only does the zoo offer its visitors a spectacular view of Innsbruck and the surrounding mountains it is also home to over 2000 animals (150 species) which are or have been typical for the Alps. It is the only zoo in the world to devote itself specifically to this topic which is one of the reasons for its success. Our animals are housed in modern enclosures, going through aviaries, exiting outdoor terrariums and a large cold water aquarium.
The Alpenzoo is a non profit association. Our main source of income is the visitor´s entrance fee. We receive additional financial support from the city of Innsbruck and the government of the Tyrol but also from the society „Freunde des Alpenzoo“, sponsors and animal adopters. We have about 300,000 visitors a year which means that we are one of the largest and most important socio-cultural institutions in the Tyrol.
