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

Do not miss this! Amazing ride to the clouds! Plan on wearing sensible shoes, a jacket and spend atleast an hour at the top. Had soup and wieners at the cafeteria. Service was slow, but hey, we were on vacation

From downtown near the Congress Center you take a cable train halfway up the mountain, followed be a cable car to the ski resort Seegrube where there are unbelievable views of the mountains and the valley, then you can take another cable car to the next station then a short...

Was there in mar2015. Bought the Innsbruck card after checking that the weather is clear up there. You can go online to see the live web cam before deciding whether to go up or not. We ask the tourist information to check for us and make sure we have a good outing. We saw many people going up there to... More

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

The view was awesome but make sure you take a hat, it's pretty windy at the top. It is an excellent spot for pictures of Innsbruck!
