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

After viewing all the mtns surrounding Innsbruck, it was nice to ascend one and step in the snow. We had some nice vies as the clouds cleared. Climbing up the slippery path to the summit was fun.

Visited Nordkette mountains with family. travel through Nordkettenbahnen was a very nice experience. Train and cablecar experience was very good. At the top, mountain is very picturesque. Are every level, there are nice restaurants. We were pleasantly surprised to find an Indian restaurant. Food was great there and staff was very hospitable.

The mountain can be ascended in 3 steps for which you buy tickets individually or as a full trip. The first is a funicular which is modern, clean and frequent. There is chance to walk about or get a drink at the first stop when you change to a cable car for the main trip up to Seegrube where there... More

As we had the Innsbruckcard we did not have to pay anything for this attraction. Take the Hungerburgbahn from the Congress. This train is really cool. We got off at the Alpenzoo (second stop). I liked it, but the other family members less. Then we returned to the train and went to the next stop. The view is beautiful. We... More

We took the tram from the Congress stop a few steps outside of Old Town Innsbruck up the mountain. Then, we traveled by gondola to the next to last stop possible. The views were outstanding. We hiked back down the extremely well groomed and marked trails in about 2 1/2 hours. We started in the snow on a 78 degree... More

Loved the ride, the experience and the views!! A must do for anyone in town. The alpine zoo was a disappointment but the cable cars were totally worth the money spent!

We bought our Innsbruck cards at the Info Centre the afternoon we arrived, then headed for the funicular as soon as it opened the next morning. Luckily the weather was perfect, and we had a crowded but spectacular trip on the first cable car, then a slightly less crowded and even more spectacular ride on the second cable car, to... More

I was disappointed with this trip as it was overcrowded with rude, pushy people. The views though spectacular are not as nice as the views from the seefeld cable cars. If I had travelled on this cable car first, it would have seemed better.
