If you purchase a, Innsbruck travel pass this entitles you to one ride on this cable car. Absolutely fantastic views from the top. There are several well marked paths around the summit and we walked for about 45 minutes in either direction to a busy café. The walking is easy and well worth it. This is not an attraction to...

This is a beautiful cable car ride up the opposite side of the valley to the Hungerberg funicular, so really recommend doing both as you get a different perspective. The weather was too bad at the top to walk, but there is a restaurant there for hot drinks and a great view.

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
