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

We took the funicular to the first stop only as we did not want to pay the additional 50 euro each to reach the top. Views were absolutely lovely and it was a clear day. You can take the J bus to this viewpoint as well for only 2 euros.

We took a funicular from Congress Station to Hungerburg, followed by 2 cable cars up to the top of the mountain! And guess what? Everything is covered free by the Innsbruck Card! We enjoyed the place very much and there is a nice and affordable restaurant on top of the mountain. A glass of wine or a mug of beer... More

It was a rainy day when we went and the tickets were so expensive! We were a little disheartened when we got to the second stop up the mountain because we couldn't see past the clouds. We stuck with it and took the next tram to the top of the mountain and we were rewarded with the most beautiful views... More

Found this by chance on tripadvisor and would recommend it to anyone. In the centre of town and easily accesible. From Congress station you catch the funicular to Hungerburg where you walk to catch 2 further cable cars up the mountain. There were Christmas markets at this stop and on the way back down they were all lit up. At... More

Definitely one of the most awe-inspiring and beautiful places I have been to. Take the funicular and then the cable car up. You should eat at the Seegrube station for a good restaurant with great views, and then continue on up to the summit of the mountain. There are several good hikes in the area and the mountains are incredible.

We were in Munich and planned a trip to Innsbruck just to experience Nordkettenbahnen... The drive from Munich to Innsbruck is a scenic one and offers taste of wht'z in store. We reached Innsbruck and got the Innsbruck card for 1 day... Started the journey from Congress station, taking the train which converts to a funicular post the Lowenhaus spot.... More

Went to Nordketten last week & it was absolutely stunning & well worth the visit. It cost 30 euros per adult but even then it was reasonable value for what you get to do. If you have a car then park in the 'Congress' car park which was on my Tom Tom sat nav & you can park there all... More

Breathtaking views! We took it on almost sunny day (with few light clouds), but I assume you might have a chance to enjoy even on cloudy day since you go above clouds. But on sunny is better. We went to the very top (about 2,235 meters) and the walked 50 meter up the mountain more to enjoy incredible views on... More

Its' an excellent panoramic view, you look at the things from top as if its a miniature model. Innsbruck itself is so nicely situated that you can mark the mountain pass running west-east clearly. Weather is the most important factor however. Buy Innsbruck pass for 2 days - I guess that's the best choice. Covers everything, including Swaravosky Crystal world... More
