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.

You can pick up the Hungerburg lift right next to the Congress Haus, just down from the Hofburg and Altstadt, in central Innsbruck and from there go right to the top of the Nordkette chain which rises above Innsbruck. The views are spectacular and there's a mountain restaurant with a terrace where you can eat and bask in the sunshine.... More

The funicular ride was very comfortable and efficient. It is indeed breathe taking. This is a bit remote and you will not have a direct sight of Salzburg old city but it is still worth visiting.

A lovely funicular, a very short journey for the price, but the views are fantastic. I loved the design of the stations themselves.

Our first experience of a mountain funicular and it was fun. Enjoyed the transition from the horizontal to the vertical movement which was quite interesting!

This gave us spectacular views of Innsbruck even when the weather was poor. It is a tad expensive but still worth doing. The service runs efficiently and frequently with restaurants at the stops

Easy to use. A bit expensive. But the easy and enjoyable way to get to the top of the mountain. Fantastic panoramic views at all 3 stations on top of the mountains. Travel early in the morning as it is less crowded. Not to be missed.

Took a day trip to Innsbruck from our hotel in Seefeld...did the city walk and came across this as a surprise. The architecture of the four stations is based on the fluid shapes of local turquoise glaciers and is worth the price of the ticket itself. Modern cableway tram system takes you up to the top station with an opportunity... More

Didn't plan to go on this but glad we did. Due to cloud we didn't continue up on cable car but had a walk around village instead. Had a pleasant few hours up there.

The station is very close to the heart of the city and it starts off more like an underground train then changes into a cable car as it goes up the hill. The stations are very modern and a nice design. Once at the top the views over the city are very good. As we looked out over Innsbruck you... More
