Description: Nirgendwo sonst liegt die Grenze zwischen urbanem Raum und rauer Bergwelt...
Nirgendwo sonst liegt die Grenze zwischen urbanem Raum und rauer Bergwelt so nah zusammen: Mit den Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen gelangt man in nur 20 Minuten vom Stadtzentrum in hochalpines Gelande. 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

We took the ride up in the Nordketten which took about 20 mins to get from the bottom of the city to the top of the mountains. I have to say that it was incredibly worth while. We went up around mid day which was great because you could easily see far into the alps from every angle! It was... More

We really enjoyed the trip from Congress on the funicular, right to the top. Winds prevented us walking to the summit, but the views were spectacular. Our only disappointment was that there seemed to be nowhere to sit where you could watch the ski and snowboard action. There is a restaurant and igloo bar, which we did not use. A... More

Good value with the Innsbruck card. Good lunch spot. Views were special to see. Nice to see as a non skier. What a feat to build this structure.

A must experience if you are visiting Innsbruck. Great views of the city, fun ride to the slopes, great to watch other people ski down these impressive mountains.

As you ascend higher and higher the adrenalin builds and then all of a sudden you break through the clouds and it feels like your on another planet! The ride is smooth and the driver knowledgeable. We went out of snow season however the tops of the mountain we're covered in the lovely white stuff. Take your camera and remember... More

Perhaps one of the most breathtaking experiences of my life, excellent views, epic skiing slopes with well priced and wonderful restaurants on the way to the top. I have only praise for this experience.

If you ever get to visit Innsbruck, you cannot avoid going up the mountains using Nordkettenbahnen. It is not that cheap but it is worth every cent. The view, the air, the snow; everything is comfortable and amazing. My suggestion: do not eat at the self-service in Seegrube.

Very nice view to Innsbruck. Even if you are not fun of the ski, worth to go up there. There is a restaurant there with a tasty goulash soup.
