Although I'm not good with heights, I felt very comfortable on this trip - both the funicular and the cable car. The ride was smooth and the views spectacular. A cup of gluhwein at the restaurant made the 25 minute wait for the return funicular very pleasant.

You haven’t been to Innsbruck if you haven’t been up the mountain. Great views from the mountain in the city

An unusual way of travelling but great fun. As it goes up or down the steep parts it sort of changes shape. Great views on the way up or down

Very scenic ride I hiked up and took the tram and funicular down. A must do. You can go two more stops and find yourself high up in your mountains,

While I do not like heights, I would still recommend taking this ride especially if you only have one chance to visit Innsbruck. Overall, the ride was a very smooth and worth the beautiful view.

If you normally take precautions for ear pain when flying on an airplane (like decongestants, ear planes, etc.) I recommend you do the same for this ride. I was not prepared for the change in pressure and I experienced a lot of ear pain between the first and second level. The cable cars are not pressurized and the pressure change is very noticeable if you have sensitive ears.

If you do not have time constraints, keep an eye on the weather reports and pick a clear day to do this ride so you can maximize the view. We were surrounded by clouds at the second level so we ended up not going to the final level. Also, as you go up, it becomes very cold! I wore pants and a light jacket, but I was still cold and we only went to the second level.

The ride up is actually in three stages. The funicular begins and ends at the station in Innsbruck. The first stop has a beautiful view with a place to take pictures and a very small cafe. This is also the point where you transfer to a cable car to ride up to the next level. The cable car holds a good number of people but has limited seating. Most of the riders stand and hold onto poles. The second level has a small restaurant with a view (if a clear day) and a small souvenir shop. This is where you will transfer to the final cable car which takes you to the top. Each level has signs that point you to an area where you wait for the next car to leave. Enjoy!

It’s a bit confusing but this lift part of the Innsbruck Nordketten Bahnen (that’s the mountain)- We drove to this on the GPS and too the lift to the top. We hiked a bit and thoroughly enjoyed the views. Breathtaking! Go!

The view was absolutely beautiful and the entire experience another example of Austrian attention to detail/efficiency. We loved it!

Great ride up the mountain but you must connect to cable cars after the second stop. It is not quite clear when you purchase tickets to the top that you must transfer out of the fancy tram and change to cable cars. Also beware that at the second stop after the zoo you must leave the tram or else it will bring you down again. It is a bit confusing especially if you do not understand German. You can buy tickets for just the tram or tickets to the top with cable cars. I think it should be better explained when buying tickets and better defined at the end of the tram ride.
