Alpenzoo Innsbruck Reviews
High in the mountains Apr 18, 2011
A fun thing to do when you are visiting Innsbruck is going
to its Zoo. The Alpenzoo is a day of fun for kids and even adults.
The Alpenzoo is not your average zoo, here you can find all the animals which are typical for the Alps. It is the only zoo in the world to devote itself specifically to this topic.
But besides the animals found in the Alps, there are also the animals that live in the rest of Europe. While you get the know more about these animals you also get the spectacular views of the surrounding mountains for "free".
When you visit the zoo make sure you bring good walking shoes with you because it is very hilly. The zoo is "housed" on a slope of a mountain and some area's are very steep! It is said that the zoo is the highest one in all of Europe, I don't know if this is true, but it is a fact that you have to climb alot!
All in all it is a fun place to spend a day and you learn something more about animals that live not so far away from your own neigbourhood ... if you live in Europe that is! :)
