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.

The cable-car is a great way to get from the center of Innsbruck up to the mountains or to the Zoo. The ride takes about 10-15 minutes, if you have kids try to get into the cabin in the front so they can see the tunnel. Definitely start from the Congress Center, so you can enjoy more of the ride.... More

This is state of the art construction with space age modular stations. A efficient service that takes you to the cable car base station. Fantastic view of Innsbruck at top station.

We went right up to the Hafelekar.It was a sunny day and the views were fantastic! we spent about half a day on the mountains - we went in the morning and we had the mountain pretty much to ourselves. It was a day well spent!A must do on a trip to Innsbruck.

Then cable car upto the next plateau, which had restaurant (good value), deck chairs, Xmas music and skiing and tobogganing, the latter of which were free to... More

My wife and I, along with my in-laws went up to the top and were blown away by the scenery! I would also recommend a drink and meal in the café at the top.

We had a really enjoyable day doing this day trip. Kids enjoyed themselves and had fun in the snow. Great scenery in a very clear day!

My partner and I took the Funicular and cable cars to the very top, Hafelekar. We took the trip on a fairly cloudy day but this added to the wonder of the trip for me. We progressed up the mountain, in three stages. First on the Funicular, which is a technical work of art. We got on at Congress and... More

A brilliant trip. Worth it just to see the stunning architecture of each of the stations. We bought an Innsbruck card so entry to this attraction is free. Stop at the first stop for great views and a sun terrace, then at the top stop do the walk up to the Hafelekar peak. Amazing views in all directions.

We hoped to visit the Christmas market at Hungerburg but discovered that it only opened at the weekends. The views however made it worth the visit. We did not take the cable car further up the mountain as it was a bit pricey but I could imagine that the trip would be worth it for the views alone.
