Top of Innsbruck: Roundtrip Cable Car Ticket

1. Top of Innsbruck: Roundtrip Cable Car Ticket

Begin your journey 560 meters above sea level, not far from the heart of Innsbruck's old town with its historical buildings and the world-renowned "Goldenes Dachl" (Golden Roof). Planned and designed by star architect Zaha Hadid, the Hungerburg funicular is a unique architectural achievement. Hop aboard your panoramic cable car and begin your upward ascent. As you rise upwards, admire how the elegant modern design of the stations contrasts with the rugged mountain landscape. Continue along Seegrube and Hafelekar and notice how the picture changes: your attention will now be caught by the painstakingly renovated station building, which was designed by the Tyrolese architect Franz Baumann. Savor the peace and beauty of nature as your ascent continues and the bustle of the city gives way to the tranquillity of the mountain. All that remains is a spectacular view of Innsbruck. By day it seems so far away it looks like a toy city, at night it shimmers like a sea of lights. After reaching the upper station at 2,256 meters above sea level, you can enjoy the breathtaking view of the city of Innsbruck on the one side and the unforgettable vista of untouched, pristine nature on the other. A visit to the Nordkette, set between the mountain range and the town, promises to be an unforgettable experience. Here you can enjoy a unique combination of relaxation, the wonder of nature, and modern architecture.

What people are saying about Innsbruck

we took a while to locate meeting point as it was not clearly stated that it is located at basement of the congress station. the experience of cable car and enjoying the view at the top of innsbruck was fantastic. the visit to the alphenzoo was great too, able to see alpine animals which are not in my home country zoo.

We had a great time on the cable car. We even managed to book some ski lessons towards the top of the peak. The restaurant was nice and we had a lovely meal before skiing.

The ascent to the summit was a very nice experience. Had a very nice and sunny day. Should be a must for every Innsbruck visitor.

Great views, very easy to use the cable cars, quick transfers. Great organization. The price is worth the attractions.

Beautiful experience in a few minutes at more than 2000 meters high with a wonderful view !!!!
