Type: Trams, Transportation
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.

A new funicular from my last visit many years ago, it is more like a train now. Makes another stop alongside the river before going up to the zoo then onto Hungerburg. Very pleasant ride.

Used the Innsbruck card for a free trip up the funicular, to the top. Unfortunately it was a rainy day but it had a certain atmosphere as we shared the lift with a couple of guys, a child, and a big cross! Had a little wander but not too close to the edge. On the plus side there were no... More

This was such a brilliant experience for us! The views were incredible over Innsbruck, and you really do go high, especially if you go right to the top! The total cost is 30 euro's, which seems a lot, but I do think it's worth it. We spent all day up there, and had lunch and hot drinks, which was good,... More

It was great, except the day we choose to go was very snowy and the cloud came down...So we only went to second stage.

This train takes to the cable car that takes you up to a restaurant bar near the top of the northern range of the alps and the views are spectacular. If you have a couple of hours you can walk down to the train. Expensive but worth it.

Recommendations: Take climbing poles if you are hiking and wish to walk in the unfenced areas. Give at least an hour to make it up the mountain, it took us an hour and a half up, 50 minutes down.

Apparently this was built by a local business man who was annoyed with the lack of public transport between Hungerburg and central Innsbruck. It's a great little train which takes you up the mountain to a Hungerburg, which is a suburb just on the outskirts of Innsbruck. Beautiful scenery looking back down over Innsbruck. They also had a small Christmas... More

The funicular has several stops at varying levels with delicious good at their cafeterias. There are free lounge chairs where you can sit and enjoy the stunning views, one of the greatest gifts Austria has to offer. Not to be missed.
