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.

4 Stations on yhis Funicular, all designed by Zaha Hadid. One way trip is approx. 5min, so definitely worth going for a ride just to experience the architecture of each station.

It was really nice riding on this very modern funicular, you really get to see the nice city landscape out of it. The bad thing is that it was broken on our way down and were forced to get a taxi (the only alternative was...More

We enjoyed several hours wandering around the peak, making use of the network of paths. Then we took the cable car down to the next station and explored some more. What a great day to spend a glorious summer's day.

Great way to see all of Innsbruck from 300 meters above the city and a cool way to get there. This is just the funicular - not the gondola to the top.

Lovely up the mountain with fabulous views. The Christmas Market here is tiny though. The markets in Innsbruck are great though.

This is only a short trip but it is worth every cent. The stations were designed by architect Zaha Hadid and they are dramatic and inspiring. Teamed with the mechanical wonder of the funicular and the incredible views for the top, this is a spectacular...More

Everything about Innsbruck is incredibly beautiful but to really appreciate the grandeur of the natural scenery it's essential to visit the Hafelekarspitze, which is the highest point accessible by the two tram lines that begin the ascent in Hungerburg. As one might expect the 360...More

We went quite early in the morning, about 8:30 which worked well for us as we prefer quiet, calm tours. By the time we went right to the top and then stopped off at each place on the return, we'd spent half a day. This... More
