Der Besuch auf der Innsbrucker Nordkette lasst in Sachen Aussicht keine Wunsche offen. Bereits an der Bergstation der Hungerburgbahn erscheint den Besuchern die Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck aus einem vollig neuen Blickwinkel: 300 Meter uber der Stadt geniesst man den traumhaften Ausblick auf die Hauptstadt der Alpen. Mit der Seegrubenbahn erreicht man kurz darauf die 1905 Meter hoch gelegene Seegrube. Von dort offnet sich der Blick auf das gesamte mittlere Inntal, die Stubaier und Zillertaler Alpen und uber das Wipptal bis zur nahe gelegenen italienischen Landesgrenze. Fur den Aussichtshohepunkt geht es mit der Hafelekarbahn weiter auf das 2256 Meter hohe Hafelekar: Dort steht die dicht besiedelte Inntalfurche auf der einen Seite im Kontrast zur unbesiedelten Wildnis des Alpenparks Karwendel auf der anderen Seite. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Stadt und Berg werden die Eindrucke hoch uber Innsbruck zum einzigartigen Erlebnis « less

So easy ,so amazing. Funicular and 2 cable cars take you almost to the top and then a 15 minute scramble to what seems the top of the world. We came up through thick mist/low cloud to emerge into bright alpine sun. Recommend a glass of Prosecco from the cafe to celebrate!

My friend and I walked up to the Hungerburg station from Innsbruck. I then paid, using my credit card, for us to come down on the train. When I looked at my credit card slip later on in the day, I noticed that I had been charged in £ sterling (GBP), not Euros. Paying in GBP in a Euro country... More

We visited in late August and there were amazing views of the city from here. The lower train was out of service, so we had to pick up a bus downtown (around the corner from the train station), for the trek up to the Nordkettenbahnen. There's amazing views from the bus also, and it's only 4EUR/person so it actually worked... More

This is a must see in Innsbruck…a tram/funicular ride to a set of gondola rides and you are on top of the mountain with a 360 degree view that is second to none! Make sure you wear the proper walking shoes and carry a jacket…even in the summer it can get very chilly. Enjoy!

Undoubtedly one of the most beautiful mountainous regions in the world. The Austrian Alps are more beautiful in Tyrol than anywhere else. This is an expensive destination for ski trips but it's worth visiting in the summer when everything is cheaper. The cable cars will take you to the top but you can also hike. There's a famous route for... More

We really enjoyed going up the mountain, amazing views from the top and if you go all the way to the top station there is a short walk (15 min) to the peak where you have stunning views of both sides of the mountain. The view towards the other side into pure wilderness was just magnificent.

If u want superb panoramic views of Innsbruck & the surrounding Alps, this should be your destination! With the Innsbruck card (which is really worth it), apart from free entry into almost all monuments, free public transport,u can get one free ride up & down this cable car & its well worth your time..unfortunately, since I was there in summer,...

First off this lift is wayyy to expensive. If it where cheaper it would have gotten a 5. You can drive up to the second part of the lift. Lift ticket was about 80 bucks us for two people. If it is a cloudy day I would wait until it was sunny. Views from the top are awesome. Lift to... More

This was the first thing we did when we landed in Innsbruck. The rides up the mountain are amazing and we were lucky to have a clear day to get the best views. The kids loved it and easily even did the few hundred meter walk up after the highest point to officially say that we all made it to... More

A must on a clear day. Beautiful views and journey to the top amazing. Go early as it can get busy. Lovely restaurant and seating area near the top. Nice to pack a picnic.
