“Don't go for the food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Unfortunately our available weekend for going up was shrouded in mist and rain, but through the brief breaks in the clouds the view was awesome. The plan was to make the trek up there and have lunch; not much we could do about the weather, but the lunch itself was disappointing. The prices were high for both food and drinks compared with the rest of Innsbruck, the soup we had was barely more flavoured than dishwater, and the service was as tepid. Overall, though, the facility is well-structured for visitors in the typical Austrian way, with loads of information and tasteful decoration (classy posters of all the ski-jump champs down the stairwell, should you choose to brave it! Closest transport stop is the Sightseer bus at the Kaiserjaegermuseum; quicker return to town is tram #1 from the bottom of the hill path in front of the Stiftkirche Wilten.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

An experience we never thought we'd have - getting SO close to the ski jump! Amazing to see the view from the ski jumper's perspective as well as observing the workforce preparing the slope for use.

“May strong you have a head for heights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

Once at the top, the views are awesome. Just a quick tram ride away from the centre of town to reach the ski jump centre.

“Stunning views, unexpectedly good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

It is quite a hike up to the top of the Bergisel Ski Jump, but you are rewarded with one of the most amazing views anywhere on this planet, in my opinion.

The food is classical Tyrolean and of a high quality. The party of six I was with thoroughly enjoyed the food. The only niggle is the beer....there just aren't enough choices (1).

If you are going to Innsbruck I would put this restaurant near the top of your sightseeing itinerary.
