Owner description: A new way to climb a mountain: not far from Innsbruck’s famed “Goldenes Dachl”, an amorphous ice formation glitters in the sun. Upon closer inspection, however, it reveals itself as the lower terminus of the Hungerburgbahn hybrid funicular railway, whose striking appearance sprung from the imagination of star architect Zaha Hadid.

If the day is clear, spend the few hours it takes and reach the top. Worth every penny. We went on 11/23 and did not even need our coats. Have a beer/wine at the first gondola stop and enjoy the view.

My wife and I were incredibly excited to take the Funicular to the mountain top. The hotel helped us find it, but unfortunately it was closed. I cannot stress enough how much research I did to ensure it was open--checking their website, checking the city's notification of closed attractions--nothing. Just an 8.5x11 sign on the window. We first arrived at... More

I took the furnicular to Hungerberg but sadly didn't haven't had the opportunity to take the cable cars to the top, I suspect it's well worth it. The furnicular itself is not especially comfy or spacious but it is good fun and offer some nice views. The furnicular terminates at the Hermann Buhl Platz and the view from here is... More

It was spendy to get to the top but it was absolutely worth it. The view was spectacular from the top! There's a restaurant, toilets, and great views at the top.

If you want to see Innsbruck from way above you need to use the funicular. The first station will cost you 10 euro, but if you want to go way high (7000 feet) its an extra 26 euros. I didnt do the second portion of it. The view from way high is spectacular.

The funicular leads from the heart of the city up into tha mountains and is the first part of the Nordkettebahn. The way leads partly underground, then climbs between the trees, stopping some time before reaching Hungerburg, where you can change to Cable car or go hiking. The carriages are quite small and inside there is place to seat only... More

Nice trip up to the top by funicular and cable car. Had great views across the town and mountains. The funicular felt like very retro sci fi and was nice to travel on. Could go on hikes in the surrounding area.

The cable-car-like funicular is a great way to go up to the alpine village of Hungerburg, which would be quite an uphill hike if you chose to walk. It's quick and easy and not expensive. We did the roundtrip and stopped off at the zoo on the way down (it's about half-way), then got back on the funicular to complete... More

It takes a few minutes to see the tiny little Innsbruck in all its beauty! In a fair weather you should definitely spare one hour and a half at least to see the view!
