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.

Although getting to the top of the peek requires 3 different cable cars, the view from the top is absolutely aesthetic. At an altitude of 7,400 feet, you can activate your photo or video and savor the moment. I highly recommend this activity, while in Innsbruck.

This a real must, pay the extra and go to the very top. Views are fantastic well worth the price. Enjoy a bowl of goulash half way up for a very reasonable price.

Would thoroughly recommend this. City to 2200 metres in 20 mins. Light rail from next to Congress station. Then change to cable car for steep ascent. Don't go too late in the afternoon to allow time to catch the second cable car to the peak.

Took the funicular up to the top for the beautiful views of the mountains and the town below. The cars were all crowded and felt like sardine at times but was quick transportation up. Had many stops to get off and see attractions along the way.

We used our Innsbruck cards and were able to check right in here, avoiding a huge queue. The childrens' faces as we climbed the hillside but stayed flat were just brilliant, they couldn't get their heads around it at all. The view at the top was impressive too, although not as good as that at the top of the adjoining... More

An absolute must if visiting Innsbruck. Just be aware if taking the trip from the second station along the River Inn. The only access is by purchasing a ticket from one of two extremely temperamental machines which take cards only. Be warned!!!

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.
