Although Muslims visiting the Alpenzoo will not be able to find prayer facilities, they may be able to find a secluded place outdoors to offer their prayers. If unable to do so, they could make use of the facilities offered at one of the several mosques in Innsbruck. Some of the most prominent mosques and Islamic Centres in the city include Islamic Center Tyrol, Eltakwa Mosque and the Turkish Islamic Association in Tyrol.
Visitors to the Alpenzoo will come across a kiosk, offering a variety of snacks and beverages, within the zoo. There is also a restaurant located just outside of the zoo. While these outlets will not be Halal certified, Muslim visitors will be able to find vegetarian and seafood dishes on the menu. There are also a few Halal restaurants in the city of Innsbruck.
