  Tyrolian wild Parakeet
by iris2002

For an interesting and relaxing walk, try the Hofgarten with its parrot population --- they are wild but you can feed them at certain times .... it's a hoot!

You hear them before you see them. They settled a long time ago and got used to the cold winters... they are very cheeky and LOVE peanuts and raisins.... some are so tame they fly on your shoulder ...

Well a bit of exotic wildlife in the alps haha :D

Address: In the Hofgarten
Directions: In the "Hofgarten" --- close to the Pavillion and the large floor chess-game

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
