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 visit the castle and do a guided tour inside it, included in your ticket price (there are tickets for 12 and 15 euros). Up there you will have a great view from the city and the mountains, especially good for pictures. The funicular is very modern and reaches fast to the top.

What a treat to gain such easy access from the old city to the base of the cable car encased in the talent of Zaha Hadid. Both the design of the funicular stations and the engineering of the track are feats to marvel at.

Excellent to ride. Superbly maintained but if you have travelled around Europe, this is not exactly novel. So, don't expect to be surprised.

Regular furnicular trains departing from various points up the mountain. Excellent views from the top. You can go further up the Nordkettebahn which we didn't as it was kinda late by the time we went up, but the views were spectacular enough from Hungerberg. At the top theres a few cafes, some hotels and the gondola to the top of... More

You would be silly to miss this. Amazing views...providing you get a clear day which luckily we had a clear week. You can see for miles. Don't be daft and miss this.

As well as visiting Old Town, a visit to one of the the Alp tops is a must. Just getting there is worth it, not to mention the view you will get over Innsbruck!

Even the station is worth seeing, for it's architecture. You don't have to wait long for the funicular , and the carriages are large. Scenery is great. Would definitely visit again. It is easy to get to and within walking distance of the ,many other sights in Innsbruck

This is a must if visiting Innsbruck, a cable train then 2 cable cars to the top. There is an excellent restaurant at Seegrube at the top of the 1st cable lift.
