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

great start or finish for a mountain hike

We walked up to the Seegrube via Höttinger Alm. A strenuous but very satisfying uphill hike. Fantastic views up the mountains and down into the Inn valley and on Innsbruck.

To reach the summit you need to take a transport (I forgot the name, lol) in the Congress station beside Hofgarten park. You will reach in the final destination, a great view. However if you want you can go to Hafelekar (the summit) taking the cable car and going up a little more, lol.. You will see the most beautifull... More

You can go until the top of Nordketten mountain (Alps) walkins or cycling, if you want (It is free), but takes a Long time or you have to pay 32 euros to go there from the City Center to the top (bus and funicular). It worth it. Awesome. I've never seen something so wonderful.

Trams station are available from Station congress ( walking distance frm train station) and Alpine Zoo station if you are driving . Best to buy Innsbruck card as it covers the cable car & tram tickets all the way up to the peak. Worth the trip and a must when you visit Innsbruck.

The cable car is crowded, but eight minutes(per leg) of the aroma of poor human hygiene is worth is once you are released into the fresh air of the mountaintop. To really take it all in you must hike around at the top. If we had had more time, I would have enjoyed walking down part of the way. This... More

Once you are at the top you have a beautiful view of the mountains and depending on the clouds a view of the city too. Don't forget to take a jacket or sweater as it can be cold at that height. The trip in the cable cars was quick and efficient. We bought the Innsbruck Card, which is good value... More

This is a really cool cable train ride up to the point where you can take the cable car up to Nordkette. Buy the Innsbruck Pass which gives you a pass to everything in Innsbruck. I think the cost of the train trip alone is 32 Euros, and the Innsbruck Pass is 39 Euros. It gives you free admission to... More
