The Linz Zoo was opened in 1980 under the motto „European animals, pets and their primeval forms“. It covers an area of about five hectares and around 650 animals of 110 different species find a home here in the foothills of the hilly Mühlviertel.

Halfway up the Pöstlingberg there is the Linz Zoo. If you want to combine escape from the hectic city life with a wonderful view over it, this is the place to be.

Various native and exotic animals live in the open-air enclosures. Donkeys, rabbits and sheep are among the inhabitants, but also kangaroos, zebras and giant snakes.
For children, a separate petting area with dwarf goats has been set up. A special rabbit tunnel brings you right next to the long-eared animals without disturbing them too much.

How to get there?

In front of the zoo there is a well sized car park, but we recommend to use the Pöstlingbergbahn, which is an attraction in itself. Not far from the main entrance there is a stop halfway up the Pöstlingberg.

The zoo in Linz is not one of the largest in Austria. The thematic focus is clearly on farm animals, but it has been extended more and more over the years. That is why exotic animals are also among the inhabitants today.
The beautiful view over the city of Linz speaks for the zoo.
If you have enough time, you can visit the zoo as a stopover on the Pöstlingberg. From there you also have a beautiful view and there is cake to eat!
