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

After a short 10 minute ride by funicular from Innsbruck town to Hungerburg one can take the cable car to go further up. The cable car station is in a beautiful spot just across the funicular station. The first ride will take you up to Seegrube which is at an altitude of 6250 ft. Here you have to change and... More

I felt like running in Innsbruck, maybe because of the jumping board which made me believe that I can fly from it into the triumphal arch from the middle of the street. The city was calm and

Make sure you travel all the way to the top and you will be rewarded with breath taking views of the Alps, with many vistas appearing almost like a barren alien landscape. Wear appropriate shoes that you don't mind getting dirty... the sheep roam freely and the leavings are scattered everywhere. We made our trip on a hot August weekend... More

Took an afternoon trip to the top of the mountain and couldn't recommend it enough. Amazing views of the surrounding area a must see.

Not to be missed although this seems like an expensive trip (get the Innsbruck card). We went to the top early (cable car starts at 8.30) on a clear day and the views were fabulous. We stayed at the top for coffee and worked our way down for lunch at the next stop (probably the most efficient self-service café ever!).... More

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
