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

Thanks to other TA reviewers we bought Innsbruck Card for 39 euro, which gave us access to many attractions including Nordkettenbahnen. We took the funicular and gondola to Hafelekar (the top), and WOW! the views from every direction were amazing. It was also fun to watch the skiers and snowboarders on the slopes below. We visited on a clear day... More

Don’t forget to get the Innsbruck card and by all means, take advantage to go on the funicular and the gondola to the top. We did this in February and the temperature and wind were very strong but the views are well worth it. It is imperative in the winter to wear hiking boots with good tread. If you are... More

We did the round trip and it was a great day. Getting to the top station was an experience on its own . The ski resort was great and the beer and food was nice. Coming from south Africa this was a new experience. Watching the small children mastering the art of skiing was special. The views are spectacular and... More

Just 15 minutes away from the city centre u can go skiing or snow boarding here. Take the cable car up the mountain and enjoy the amazing view from the top. Unforgettable skiing time here.

Thanks to other TA reviewers we bought Innsbruck day passes at 39E which gave us access to many attractions. When we were at the tourist information office the cashier pulled up the webcam on her computer screen showing the summit of the Nordketten. Unlike the overcast weather in the center of town, the summit showed up as a clear, blue... More

The funicular to hungerburg is nice but perhaps a tad overrated. The cable car ride to seegrube and hafalekar is totally amazing with some mind blowing alpine scenery and great panoramic view of Innsbruck city. The restaurant at seegrube is excellent !

Use the Innsbruck card and it is included. There are various stops. Top is about 2.5 km up. That is very high and the only spot in Innsbruck we found Gluhwein!
