Zoo is located at different levels, and before you visit it, you need to take care of comfortable shoes and book a cheap hotel in Innsbruck.

At the zoo in 1984 was opened zooshkola in which you can listen to interesting stories about animals from teachers, to learn many new things at your local library or visit the exhibition on the Tyrolean animals. Zooshkola always happy trips to the zoo for adults and children together or separately. Scientists working here in the woods and pick up injured animals, treated and released at will, thereby maintaining eco-balance.
Also at the zoo resettled a large cold tank in which live fish and amphibians, leading into the local rivers and lakes. In winter the zoo is also possible to see the animals, provided that they do not hibernate. There is an interesting fact - if you go to the zoo at the right time, you can hear the "singing" wolves living here. Wolves begin to howl when the church bells ringing Innsbruck.
