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

The view from the top is absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! If staying for 24 hours or longer in Innsbruck, buy the Innsbruck Card. All three transportation vessels to the top are included, as so is the Alpen Zoo entrance, public transportation etc. I'm not much for heights, but I made it to the top, and boy was it worth the shaking...

My wife and I grew up in the midwest, where there is no mountains. So, going up into the Alps was an unforgettable experience! Absolutely stunning views from mountains on all sides.

Coming from Malaysia where there's no snowy mountains, we were lucky to be able to experience the snow capped mountains after riding on the cable car. The cable car itself was large consisting of 5/6 smaller cars and could fit in about 10-12 people in 1 small car. The journey was smooth and not frightening especially for someone with fear... More

The funicular from Congress to Hungerford is impressive technology. Then two cool cable car rides to the top where you can access the snow (fresh snow in late May - gotta love it!). There is also a very good café at the top. Views are spectacular on the way up and back, as well as from the top. This is... More

We traveled up the Nordkette to the very top. It was a wonderful way to spend the day. A funicular and two cable cars take you close to the top. Then there is a nice hike up to the summit. Amazing views. Fabulous. On the way up (or down) there are restaurants, and an alpine zoo. All great. Had a... More

Breathtakingly beautiful, Not Only a must do but the First Thing to do when you reach Innsbruck. As we arrived at noon at our Hotel Ramda Tivoli from Salzburg our rooms were not yet ready for occupancy. Left our luggage at the Hotel and took the local bus service which was right behind the Hotel. Bought our tickets for the... More

I might not get the words to express the experience as it was such an amazing that I am totally mesmerism after seeing the view. Worth to reach to the top of the mountain. You can see birds floating on the air at such height and enjoying there flight. You can take the cable car to reach almost top, but... More

I think that Aussies would appreciate the view at the top of the Nordkette more than most other countries because the views of the Alps above Innsbruck are awesome. We caught the small 'train' at Congress. Hint: the best way to find your way to the Congress station is to follow the river downstream from the Old Town. You can... More
