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.

If you go to Innsbruck, you must see the panorama from the top of the mountains. It is astonishing! We bought the ticket up to the Seegrube and enjoyed the amazing view from the city and the mountains. First, you take the funicular up to the Hungerburg station, with the spectacular stations designed by Zaha Hadid. The views from there... More

To have tram stations adorned by Zaha Hadid's work is phenomenal. Her sculptures elevate the entire experience of being there. Yes, a bit of competition for the Alps. The tram to the top of Nordkette is perfect. I will do it again and again: Innsbruck and the views are worth it.

We arrived mid afternoon and had time to go up 2 stops to the top of the funicular where you change for the cable car. This cost just 8 euros and gave a great view of city.

Somehow we didn't realize this possibility because we were visiting for professional reasons. But the locals advised to do it, and we were really thrilled by the experience, particularly by the thought that it is in fact possible to ski from the top (deadly, if you ask me). I guess it is nicer if you go in wintertime, when you... More

Fast, efficient and comfortable. Fascinating to watch the carriages 'split' to keep each car level. The funicular runs every 15 minutes, so if one is missed, it's no hardship to wait for the next.

I got it wrong, this is the attraction we went and not the Nordtherbarken. Sorry about that. But tis Funicular was spectacular, we got to see the snow with my wife. It has 3 stops, one where you can step down and get a nice view of the city. The next stop we got to see some small stores and... More

We boarded the funicular as a means of getting up the mountain and it was ridiculously busy and comparable to a London Tube train at rush hour. BUT once it got moving it was so much fun zooming along and then flying up the track at a super steep angle with views all around. Working as a means of transport... More

Some say it is quite expensive but all those concerns suddenly disappear when you reach the top. Don't be cheap. It is absolutely worth the trip! High seasons may and will be crowded. Expect long lines and check if some kind of "fast track pass" is available. Otherwise, enjoy!
