My girlfiend and I spent a week in Innsbruck in Feb 2014. We were there primarily for the skiing, but also experienced some other attractions. When we were planning our trip we were trying to find out some general information but could only find information about specific attactions or activities. I thought I'd write this review to try and get... More

The trip up the cableway is not as dramatic as the Nord Ketter but is still worthwhile. To get there, you will have to travel just outside Innsbruck and this can be done by the bus.

The cable car was due to close the following week for maintenance so I grabbed my one chance. Maintenance had already started - I shared the lift with two engineers who removed a floor panel to check the wiring! At the top, both cafes were closed and so was the Alpine Garden. Came straight back down again.

We'd listed this attraction as a priority while in the area, only to discover it was closed on our day of visit and most of the warmer months. We hiked the area below instead, which was still enjoyable. But we could have spent the energy going to another peak, such as Mutter, instead of planning a trip to an under... More

It is easy to get to and the sking is good at the top of the mountain even in a poor snow year as it has been this year. There is a frequent bus service to and from Innsbruck and a Inter -Sport at the mid station where it is quick and easy to hire skis and boots. The traditional... More

We made this ride in July 2013. As we had bought the Innsbruck card, we took the bus line J from Innsbruck to Igls, and we went up with the Patscherkofelbahn. We took there the "Zirbenweg" (everything is amazingly indicated with yellow signs very frequently) but as our daughter refused to go down in the chairlift to Tulfes (and seeing... More

This is a great ski lift. It doesn't take long to get to the top and once you get there the views are exceptional. There is a nice bar and restaurant at the top with lots of walks available. The old stone pine path is highly recommended.
