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

It's worth travelling on the cable car.You will enjoy with the best landscape from the top. You will be able to see the highest mountains of the region.

Unfortunately, we too missed out on the views because it started snowing in the morning and continued all day. We couldn't see anything further than 5metres. The snow was sightly but very windy on top.

Used Nordkettten bahn to reach Hungerburg with local mountain school in tour arranged by the tourist office. Very pleasant walk with superb view over the Inn valley until Rumer Hutte was reached.There are a wide range of walks in summer and winter sports activities in the winter.

Nordkettenbahn is series of connecting funiculars that starts very close to Altstadt (oldtown) and brings you to the top of nearest peaks. It is pricey but sort of a must-do thing when you are visiting the area. At the very top there is starting point for a klettersteig (via ferrata) or just a short trail to walk. You would need...

We rode the funicular to the attractive village of Hungerburg then continued up on the Nordkettenbahnen cable way. The unfolding view over the valley as we ascended, quite quickly, was outstanding. At the top there was plenty of snow on the ground (the first we'd seen on this trip), a sensational panorama, an outdoor bar and a restaurant. We were... More

This is a short distance from the old town/Altstadt and worth checking out if you're in the area. I went in May and was in a t-shirt most the day, but at the top of the ski lift it was freezing and covered in snow, so bring a coay. It is definitely overpriced, but I suppose the beautiful view is... More

We were retracing a trip my father took in 1934, and could not have had better luck. The Weather was amazing and the views spectacular from the top. The restaurant at Seegrube has great views and great apple strudel. As long as you have a fine day, the views from the top are spectacular and peaceful at the same time.... More

This was a great one day trip into the mountains. Going up was a bit scary, but definitely worth it. We had a lunch at the top, and a nice cup of tea while enjoying the most beautiful views.

Thank Katherine M
