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 Tyrolean alps was beyond anything I could have imagined. The Nordkettenbahnen is a railway and cable car system which runs from Innsbruck city centre right to the summit of the Hefelekar Peak in Tyrol, which is at 2334-m above Sea level. A few minutes walk from the city centre brought us to the Innsbruck Congress station from where the... More

This is a must see, even if you don't ski the view and the experience was superb. The ride from the city stops first in the Alpen Zoo, and then you go on to transfer to the cable car. We used the Innsbruck Card and it is way more affordable like this !! Go get it at the tourist information... More

You can't come to Innsbruck and miss this! We had a perfect day. Sunny and no clouds. Go to the top and hike another 10 minutes to the very top. The views are breath taking! Then head to the main lodge and get a chair and a beverage or lunch and again take in all the views. To me this... More

Great views and thanks to the Innsbruck card great value, just doing this trip is nearly the value of the card and can do so much else as well. Not the best day to go up, with some cloud, but still great views and lots of stop offs to have a walk and see different things.

I have always enjoyed going up the Nordkettenbahn since the view at the top of the mountain is really spectacular. This time I had a visit near winter so the snow is really noce on top of the mountain, I would say perfect for skiing or just watching skiers. The top station of the mountain though was closed due to... More

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 were so so lucky to have chosen a beautiful, sunny, cloud free day to take our trip up to the top of this beautiful mountain! It was easy to reach, a smooth and hassle free journey. We stopped at Seebruge for something to eat and a nice cold beer while taking in the skiers and snowboarders and watching their... More

Went up after dark for dinner on a Friday night. That negated the scenic value of the ride, but still stunning views from the top. Cloud 9 igloo bar was busy, but a must see. Restaurant food was very average but no one noticed with a large group busy talking. A memorable on-mountain dining experience.
