Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen

Mountain lift open

The state-of-the-art Hungerburgbahn funicular railway whisks visitors in just a few minutes from Innsbruck's medieval oldtown up to the Hungerburg area of the city at the foot of the Nordkette mountains. From there the journey continues with the cable car all the way up to the Seegrube at 1,905 metres above sea level. Perched high in the mountains, this plateat high in the mountains is a popular destination for hikers, mountainbikers, rock climbers and day-trippers. The Perspektivenweg hiking trail also starts here. Those who want to head even higher can take the Hafelekar cable car all the way up to 2,556 metres. Here, at the top of the Nordkette mountains, visitors can look forward to breathtaking views of the regional capital Innsbruck and the Alpenpark Karwendel, Austria's largest nature park.
