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

If you are not a sport-enthusiast, this is the right way to get on the summit - great views on Innsbruck and the alps

We spent a day going up the Hungerburg by funicular, cable cars etc. The views are spectacular, and lots to see...paragliders, sheep, mountains and lots of places to just sit and enjoy the surroundings. At the various 'levels' there are places to eat. On the way down we walked part way to the Alpenzoo.

The only reason for not giving this an 'excellent' was that I felt 29 euros was pushing it a bit. The view from the top is quite extraordinary. A must-do in Innsbruck.

Wonderful views, and quite and experience. However, if you can't see the top of the mountain from the bottom, then save your money. If you have the Innsbruck card then you should go either way since its included. We went to the top and froze and saw plenty of snow. It's too bad it wasn't sunny because I'm sure it... More

For a totally amazing view of Innsbruck, this is the easiest way to see the countryside. Very safe and modern .

Great ride to the top. Do it with the Innsbruck card for good value for money. Excellent and clear weather in June helped and we climbed right to the top. Spectacular views of Innsbruck and adjoining peaks. As is with such rides,the weather conditions will be crucial and should be kept in mind.

I took advantage of the Innsbruck card and took the cable car all the way to the top to be rewarded with amazing views. I got to see and touch snow for the first time too :)

This is my second time using the Hungerburgbahn. Congress station, the base station, is a stones throw from the Altstadt. The ticket agents speak great English and are very helpful. After departing Congress station, you will travel across the river Inn and go through a very long tunnel at warp speed. You will reach the Alpenzoo in just a few... More

This funicular starts like an airport rail shuttle and ends like a plane taking off. Amazing engineering feat and outstanding design.
