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

Beautiful vistas of Innsbruck await you at the top. We got on at the River Station and took the short ride down to the main station where huge crowds waited in line and crowded in. By doing this we got to stand at the front of the first car and didn't wait in any lines. You can buy your ticket... More

Buy the day card and go for this ride. Spectacular views at the top, one can just be there for hours. Or go for trekking to further peak points (Trek options ranging from 10min- 2.5 hours, something available for every kind of traveler). The best experience in Innsbruck without a doubt!

Several stops as you ascend to mid-mountain. Photo op at the landing ...R/T ticket will save a little but anyone with an Innsbruck Card or bus pass can return easily to Innsbruck center on the J bus. The funcular ends at the start of one of the many hiking trails up this mountain.

The cost of the trip to the top of the mountain is well worth it, the views are spectacular and even if there is cloudy the atmosphere is refreshing. It's quiet and very calming, even when there are plenty of people there. You need to get a train from Congress Station to the cable car entrance, just outside of the... More

There were great views of the mountains from the cable cars and at both the stops. There were clouds passing by us. Absolutely amazing.

Mountain tram to small restaurants, food and drinks, great views and walks. You can get off at several different points, linger, eat or go to the top and stop on the way down. You can also walk down.

My friend and I visited on a very overcast day, and traveled up the mountain mostly in the clouds: saw only a few peaks of the city. When we got to the top, it was whited out all around us. BUT, it was snowing inside the cloud. We wandered the mountaintop in the flurries, throwing little snowballs, and celebrated at... More
