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.

You take the train and get on the funicular. A local riding a bike might separate the two but they are not looking at trip advisor. Both can be done in an hour depending on the crowd and both are included on the Innsbrook card.

It’s a little difficult to separate a review of this from the Nordkettenbahnen since for me, they are both inter-linked. But it’s a beautifully designed funicular and probably a ‘wow’ factor for kids.

Don't miss doing this, even if the weather isn't great. The views are spectacular and the ride up itself is pretty amazing. Have the hot chocolate at the top. It comes out of a machine, but is yummy!

The view from the top of thenHingerburg is amazing. The restaurant is OK but you're there for the view not the food! If you're lucky, you'll catch a hang glider taking off

It was a thrilling ride on the funicular rising against the mountain at a steep gradient. In my opinion, this was one of the best activities in Innsbruck especially in summer.

If you have kids, definitely start from Congress Centre, even if the next stop might be closer to you. It definitely has a huge fun-factor and children just love riding the cable car. There is also a combi ticket with the Zoo available . Don´t go if you have claustrophobia (passes through two tunnels),but otherwise it´s very enjoyable.

Easy ride up in the summer. Its cooler at the top so bring a sweatshirt. We watched a storm roll in from the valley in it was beautiful. You can do a little hiking once you're up there. Stay for lunch and relax on the patio. Its a lovely spot.

It's definitely worth both the time and the money. Great perspective of the city and the countryside. The cars may be crowded but when you get out it's like being on top of the world. Treat yourself.
