  • Great for all ages. 100m from top to bottom but no steps. Really nice layout. I wish the song birds had a bit more space. Worth the trip! The mergansers were NOT part of the exhibit but were there!
  • The place is so great, above all expectations ! A lot of animal species, one can even go inside few aviaries which makes the zoo pretty interesting and interactive. Spent here more than an hour, would be perfect attraction for families with children You can buy ticket that includes Hungerburgbahn and the zoo, so after visiting the place you can still go higher to the mountain. The zoo is also reachable by city bus
