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.

I'd last made this journey over 50 years ago and it didn't disappoint. The funicular takes you over the River Inn to the first stage from which you take a cable car to Hungerburg and, if desired, another to the highest point, Hafelekar. At Hungerburg there are several eateries and a fantastic viewing area - the view over Innsbruck is... More

The Funicular is well run and is an efficient way of getting up the mountain. It's also lots of fun. It's a bit expensive but the view at the top is exceptional. We were blessed with a stunningly clear day so the views were uninterrupted. Not sure if I would bother using the Funicular if the visibility isn't good, however... More

Great view of Innsbruck and Alps but ensure you can see the peaks from the city before you go to ensure the view. You can get on the funicular near the centre of town. Pricey on its own (€29) so buy an Innsbruck card (1 day €33 as at 2015) and you get entry to all the cities attractions. Even... More

The stations, the detailing, the design, the breathtaking views and the restaurant at the top...just wow. Kids loved playing in the snow and the whole experience is brilliant.

Starting at Congress the funicular speeds along down and through a tunnel before starting to climb. It is an impressive journey up. But even better is the way back when it really picks up speed. Stand at the front and you'll see the other one come hurtling towards you in the dark, on the same track as you! Then you... More

This Funicular take you to the top of mountain where you find a lot of snow even in the spring. You will have a fantastic landscape while you are in the top or when taking Funicular.

A must thing to do in Innsbruck! We were lucky to have an amazing clear day to see the views, which are amazing and worth the money to get up the mountain. They did push lots of people into one part but you are so busy looking out at the views it didnt really bother us being a little squished.

Recommend getting an Innsbruck card. We didn't . Even though it was cloudy the views were still great of Innsbruck and the valley. It's just that once we went through the clouds we emerged into mostly more clouds. Still we could see some of the peaks around us and because we went early in the day in autumn we felt... More

the funicular was under maintenance when we went, but they had enough instructions on how to get to the top by bus. It took around 15-20 mins to get to the top by bus. It was worth it. The view was very picturesque. You would be able to view the whole town and the mountains at the back. Go here... More
