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

Spent a great morning travelling up on the funicular railway then onto the cable car to the top of the mountain. I'm not a skier - but really enjoyed the acrobatics on display by the young people showing their considerable skills on the jumps. The air quality was amazing and worth going just for that. The architecture and design in... More

Probably one of the best holiday experiences of my life, the trip up the Hafelekar was a genuinely unique experience. We were fortunate to have a nice sunny day - there was little cloud about but once at the top of the mountain you were above it anyway. There was still loads of snow at the mountain top, and skiers,... More

Last year we had one of those once-in-a-lifetime-trips: My husband and I ( later on our son joined us, too) visited 7 countries during the summer. One of them was Austria, and especially Innsbruck. - Since I love to plan trips and all sorts of activities, for Innsbruck I had planned a day trip up to the Alps by Nordkettenbahnen.... More

Hubby and I went to Innsbruck for my 60th birthday early February. As we were there for a few days we bought the Innsbruck card 72 hours - it cost 45 euros each - and it was well worth it. we took the nordkettenbahn up to hungerburgbahn then cable car to Seegrube - check out the cloud 9 bar !...

Innsbruck maybe the most beautiful city in the world and to take a trip to the top of the mountain and get the view of the Alps with the city below is simply breathtaking!

Innsbruck is the finest city in the Alps and Nordkettenbahen is the crown jewel. Soaring from the city center to the top of Nordkette is a few minutes you discover raw nature on the other side. The architecture of the stations are Tirolean at its best. The Seegrube bar and deck are the coolest in town.

This was well worth the money and what a fantastic photo opportunity, even in cloudy weather! I travelled up the Nordkettenbahnen as part of the Innsbruck Card - great value for money. I stopped off at the Alpine Zoo and then continued right to the top. I sat on a bench towards the summit and enjoyed being above the clouds!... More

What a great experience, we coupled this excursion with atrip to the Allen zoo and had a great day. Amazing scenery all the way to the top, and even if you're not too keen on hiking to some of the near by peaks you can have a beer and feed some of the wild birds while doing so, get the... More

We bought the Innsbruck card from the magazine store in the train station. It was €31 per person for 24 hours. We made it worth every cent by using it for going on the Nordkettenbahnen and to go to the Swarovski Crystal World. You can use the card to simply scan at the gates to get up the mountain by... More
