The wildlife park in the hiking area Hoch-Imst was created to introduce children to the world of domestic and mountain animals.
At 1,582 m a.s.l. high above the town of Imst, where the Alpine Coaster Imst snakes its way across the landscape, children can observe and pet domestic and mountain animals. The Alpine Zoo Hoch-Imst - a highlight for every family getaway - was realised by Imst Tourismus on a 1,200 sq m large area in the heart of the North Tyrolean mountains.
Goats and sheep, mules and rabbits, hens and Guinea pigs have lived in the Hoch-Imst Alpine Zoo (Almzoo Hoch-Imst) for some years now. The mascots, the two sheep Wolly and Tolly, accompany you from one enclosure to the next and small elevations help the little ones to see all the animals.
A visit to the this area can perfectly be combined with a stop at the Latschenhütte mountain hut at 1, 632 m a.s.l. or the Obermarkter Alm mountain hut. Both mountain huts are located close by. The wildlife park can be reached by the Imster Bergbahnen cable cars (30 minutes walking time from the intermediate station) or on foot. The family-friendly hike starts at the Hoch-Imst parking space and leads along the Opferstockweg trail in 1.5 hours to the park.
The Hoch-Imst Alpine Zoo stays closed in winter, the summer season 2023 will start in early June.
