Type: Trams, Transportation
Owner description: 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

there isnt much to do for travellers who are not there to ski. For people who love skiing , i would think that it is a rather advanced slope as there is a piste that is 70 percent incline at the top of Nordkette. Not a good place for beginners to start. As i was travelling down , i saw... More

Took this cable car from Hungerburg up to Seegrube, where there is a restaurant and ice bar. Many skiers come up to here, then ski down and get the chairlift back again. From here we took another cable car to near the very top of the mountain, and then walked further up in the snow, the views from here were... More

Breathtaking! First trip was in March and when we got off the third cable car and walked a short way fighting ice & snow, we thought we were near the top -- outstanding view! Next trip, 3 yrs later, was in June, and we discovered we weren't even close! Go to the top, to the cross -- magnificent views; clean,... More

We went in December and went right up to Hafelekar and visited the Restaurant there. The views on the way to the top were restricted due to the weather, but venturing out in the open at the top is worth it. The ride up in the cable car and train is included in the Innsbruck card which is really value... More

This is a must for any visitor to Innsbruck. The cable car and railway is a fantastic day spent high in the Alps duty spectacular views. The restaurant at Seegrube has a variety of German fare at fairly high prices but for the view it's worth it. Views from the top have to be seen to be believed. Great value.

I will never forget the moment when I stepped into the cable car (in rather muggy, cold, and overcasty Innsbruck), not sure if my money for the cable car was well-spent... and then all of the sudden, I rose above the clouds, with a jaw-dropping view over the Alps, and the river Inn, winding its way through the valley! If... More

Memories of childhood are coming back when going up to the top of the mountains by the cable railway :) If you go up to the last station of Nordkettenbahn, you will have a wonderful view over the city Innsbruck. I also visited the alpine zoo and especially liked the aquarium inside. Coming around with Innsbruckcard is probably the best... More

If you happen to be in Innsbruck, buy an Innsbruck card. You get many variants of it. You get to explore the city's landmarks, hassle free. The infrastructure of cable car that takes you to Nordketten....is amazing-posh and well maintained. Hop-on and Hop-off buses can be handy if you are tired of walking.
