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.

Amazing bit of engineering, the train is made up of carriages that move independently of each other, so as you go up the hill each carriage gets an outward view without blocking the view of the other carriages.

Things across the world are changing. This funicular is just a mode of transport from a level to another. Nothing exciting about it.

On a good day this is an amazing location to take in the local mountains and even those off in the distance. I love that there isn't an abundance of safety barriers ruining the scenery, parents keep an eye on your kids. We had a little snow (October) but the temperature was still great. The best way to see it... More

This was a nice small excursion for us, having just a couple of hours before next engagement. We took the funicular up to Hungerburg station and took a short walk into the forest an had a nice moment looking at the magnificent view,

The funicular offers one a comfortable lift up the mountain which allows one a beautiful view looking down over Innsbruck. I saw mountain goats and tons of hikers and bikers as I was lifted up the mountain. There is a nice restaurant at the top where you can purchase a meal or just snacks and a drink to add to... More

This was the best thing by far we did in Innsbruck. Yes it’s expensive, but SO worth every cent for the spectacular views from the top. It was overcast the day we’d chosen to go, but it turned out to be a good thing, as once at the top, we were above the clouds and they made the views all... More
