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

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.

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.

A city surrounded by a overwhelming chain of mountains.The city is so beautiful and the place where it is located is impressive. Remember to take the train up to the mountain where you can have a panoramic view of the city and the mountains. There are two stations, one in the middle of the way and another on the top.... More

First thing to know when getting to the cable car - take Seegrube point - it's the most optimal one. Not the highest though but has all the advantages: beautiful terrace, cafe, free deck-chairs to sit and enjoy both city and mountain views and of course plenty of walking routes. You can take a bike with you, buying only one... More

Everyone knows if you are visiting an alps area then the weather is unpredictable! As we were only in Austria for 6 days you can't wait for nice days! Took the train from Seefeld in Tirol, about 38 mins straight to Innsbruck. A pleasant walk into the centre and to the Congress. Everything is very clearly labelled and priced. Possibly... More

Innsbruck is stunning but you HAVE to go up the mountain to appreciate it. We visited on a rainy August day but the clouds added to the experience. It was like looking into an abyss - nothing in every direction! Yet when the clouds parted, beauty! The Innsbruck Card covers the funicular plus cable cars plus alpine zoo - I... More
