A new way to climb a mountain: not far from Innsbruck’s famed “Goldenes Dachl”, an amorphous ice formation glitters in the sun. Upon closer inspection, however, it reveals itself as the lower terminus of the Hungerburgbahn hybrid funicular railway, whose striking appearance sprung from the imagination of star architect Zaha Hadid.

I really loved this. Although I am not that kean on heights, I found this trip up the mountains fantastic. There are two changes to get to the top, but do it and you won't be disappointed. Even though the day wasn't the best you still got great views. And it is included in the Innsbruck card. Don't know if... More

Soon after crossing the Hofburg palace while heading towards the river you come across this very modern looking architecture which actually is a funicular station. The tiny funicular train crosses river Inn and goes through the alpine mountains and takes you up to Hungerburg from where, if interested, one can take the cable car to go further up to the... More

Took the funicular and tram to the top of the Alps. Hiking was wonderful. The views were breathtaking. Would highly recommend this adventure.

I think this just gets you from town to the halfway point up the mountains but from the viewing area up there you get a nice panoramic view of the Innsbruck area.

Zagat Hadid's brilliant piece wrapping the funicular into the mountain hills gives Innsbruck an edge. Going to the top provides great views of the city and the surrounding Alps in all their magnificence. You can go on and take the cable car all the way to the top, but that's an expensive proposition for a family coating almost €100 for... More

This funicular is quite an amazing bit of engineering, but for the most spectacular views, you need to keep going up the mountain. We did lunch and the alpine zoo on the way down from the summit Nordkette. The stations are modern and very cool if you like architecture. The innsbruck card includes one roundtrip up the mountain, so stop... More

The funicular takes you part way up the mountain, with a stop at the Alpine Zoo if you want. The carriages remain level even when proceeding up the steep slope, giving views over Innsbruck. At the point where the teain ends, a cable car can then be caught to go higher. Another cable car takes you to the top of... More

A trip on this amazing train and then the gondola up the mountain is a must. Before continuing up the mountain on the gondola walk 5 minutes to the small church. It has wonderful modern paintings inside from Weiler, who is one of Tirol's greatest artists.

Quick access from the city to the mountains. Has a stop at the Alpenzoo. Connects to the Nordkette tram with a short walk.

I don't like writing bad reviews, however this is one exception, do not waste your well earned money, it's not what it appears to be on the information boards, it's very pricy for what it actually is, it is split into two levels for which you have to pay at each section, the initial funicular run lasts 4 mins and...
