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

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.

Some time since we visited Innsbruck but felt it was worth a review anyway. Really beautiful city with excellent architecture. Good if you can get to view the ski jump area & also get to ridfe on the railway around the mountains that surround the City - this railway area was used in the film Von Ryan's Express starring Frank...

So easy ,so amazing. Funicular and 2 cable cars take you almost to the top and then a 15 minute scramble to what seems the top of the world. We came up through thick mist/low cloud to emerge into bright alpine sun. Recommend a glass of Prosecco from the cafe to celebrate!

My friend and I walked up to the Hungerburg station from Innsbruck. I then paid, using my credit card, for us to come down on the train. When I looked at my credit card slip later on in the day, I noticed that I had been charged in £ sterling (GBP), not Euros. Paying in GBP in a Euro country... More

We visited in late August and there were amazing views of the city from here. The lower train was out of service, so we had to pick up a bus downtown (around the corner from the train station), for the trek up to the Nordkettenbahnen. There's amazing views from the bus also, and it's only 4EUR/person so it actually worked... More

This is a must see in Innsbruck…a tram/funicular ride to a set of gondola rides and you are on top of the mountain with a 360 degree view that is second to none! Make sure you wear the proper walking shoes and carry a jacket…even in the summer it can get very chilly. Enjoy!
