Description:

Nirgendwo sonst liegt die Grenze zwischen urbanem Raum und rauer Bergwelt...

Nirgendwo sonst liegt die Grenze zwischen urbanem Raum und rauer Bergwelt so nah zusammen: Mit den Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen gelangt man in nur 20 Minuten vom Stadtzentrum in hochalpines Gelande.

Der Besuch auf der Innsbrucker Nordkette lasst in Sachen Aussicht keine Wunsche offen. Bereits an der Bergstation der Hungerburgbahn erscheint den Besuchern die Landeshauptstadt Innsbruck aus einem vollig neuen Blickwinkel: 300 Meter uber der Stadt geniesst man den traumhaften Ausblick auf die Hauptstadt der Alpen. Mit der Seegrubenbahn erreicht man kurz darauf die 1905 Meter hoch gelegene Seegrube. Von dort offnet sich der Blick auf das gesamte mittlere Inntal, die Stubaier und Zillertaler Alpen und uber das Wipptal bis zur nahe gelegenen italienischen Landesgrenze. Fur den Aussichtshohepunkt geht es mit der Hafelekarbahn weiter auf das 2256 Meter hohe Hafelekar: Dort steht die dicht besiedelte Inntalfurche auf der einen Seite im Kontrast zur unbesiedelten Wildnis des Alpenparks Karwendel auf der anderen Seite. Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Stadt und Berg werden die Eindrucke hoch uber Innsbruck zum einzigartigen Erlebnis

Very cool scenic view of Innsbruck. Didn't go all the way to the top but the first stop offered very nice views of the city and had a nice restaurant. If you like mountain biking in the summer or skiing in the winter I imagine this place only gets better.

The Nordkette mountain range in right in the middle of the Alps, a great place to visit. The Nordkettenbahn (in the Metro map labelled as HBB) goes up to Seegrube (1,900 metres) & Hafelekar (2,269 metres). If you are short of time, at least take a Bus J to the terminal at Nordkette Station, after about 15 minutes, get down... More

The cable car ride is very scenic and with a good view. A bit crowded at times. The scenes from the top of Innsbruck and other places are a joy. Also has options to hike up and cycle up for the more adventurous. I visited in Summer and hence could just imagine the more beautiful views when it is covered... More

We hiked all the way up and down. Do yourself a favor and do the same if you are able. It gave us a lot more time to soak in the gorgeous scenery!! Absolutely wonderful experience.

This tram up the mountain offers many choices. There are at least three great stops that offer walks with great views or cultural sites. A great way to spend the day without too much walking required.

Nordketten bahn is the mountain rail which starts just right at the end of the city center and takes you halfway of the mountain to Hungerburg that provides excellent views of the city. The train is of a very high quality, there are a few stations in between and each of them looks so futuristic. Although the train will be... More

Amazing experience and worth every single euro spent! Get the Innsbruck card and visit one or two other major sites - it will pay for itself. Don't worry so much about crowds - it's a big mountain but if you want to dine or have a body odor free ride to the top, go early morning. Beautiful views - feels... More
