Innsbruck Alpenzoo With A Toddler

Innsbruck Alpenzoo is a fun little zoo for toddlers. If a little hilly. But the hilltop location means that there are great views of Innsbruck.

There is also a wide selection of birds but they were not of much interest to Daisy. She liked looking at the fish and frogs in the aquarium and the snakes. Anything where you could lift her up to the glass for a closer look.

We had a fantastic day out at inatura in Dornbirn. This is an interactive museum focusing on nature, humans and technology.
