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. « less

Very good service, the funicular was fast and clean. They had a lot of people but it was not a problem. Great experience for everybody. It takes a few minutes to go up the mountain and get to see the beautiful castle and the incredible view of the city and the Neckar River.

If it's sunny, go all the way up! It's a fantastic view! But if the peak is clouded over, it wouldn't be worth the extra money (no view if you're in the clouds!). On a cloudy day, there's still a nice view from here, and the tram ride up is scenic and novel.

This was really an amazing experience. The view from the top was so beautiful! The mountains were full of snow when we went up, that made it very special!

The weather was great when we went up. The entrance to the funicular is located at the Valley Station, as you can see in my pictures. There's not much sitting space, but it was still pleasant to stand till the end of the ride. Thereafter, you will change to the cable car. This mountain is one of the best I've... More

The entrance is conveniently located in the city center. From this location one is transported to the Hugerburg station and cable cars. This leg of the climb has a series of cable car lifts with 3 stations to take you up the mountain. The steep hike from the last station to the top of Hafelekarspitze (2269m) takes about 15 minutes...

Great funicular and a nice place to be. Hungerburg has a sunny plateau with awonderful view of the city and the surrounding mountains, nice cafés and places to sit aoutside even in late winter. Absolutely worth it, and not to miss out on!

We took the Hungerburg Funicular today and it was great. Ran on time and the views over looking the city are pretty. It's a good idea to go in the last carriage as you will be able to look back down onto the city. It's worth getting the Innsbruck card as it allows you one trip right up to the... More
