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.

Utilize the discounts at the casino, city tours, or even a traditional folk show with the centuries-old company Tyrolean Evening. Choose between a 24, 48, or 72-hour card and start having fun.

Easy to find by the Congress. The confirmations must be submitted at the ticket office for the actual tickets. The ride was pleasant and the views from the Hungerburg stop was what I had hoped to see. It was at dusk and Innsbruck was lit up, yet we could still see the mountains. It was very cold but worth enduring it for the view.

Facile à commander et très pratique pour visiter toutes les choses à faire à Innsbruck en 24h. C'est une carte qui dure 24h à partir de l'heure d'obtention ce qui est très pratique.

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.

Simply put…,You cannot miss this…. Hell of a ride…thrilling , adventurous, breathtaking

Súper worth while. Especially if you take the cable car ride!
