The tour itself was spectacular, however we did run into some unnecessary problems. First we parked in the garage at the conference center... 12 extra expense. We went into conference center, and wasted about 30 minutes searching for the actual station. When we got to the ticket counter, I had misplaced the printed voucher, but had electronic one on my phone. Which clearly stated they would accept electronic voucher. When I got to window and showed to young girl she just handed me a sheet with email and wanted me to email. But there was no WiFi available. Tried to copy/paste for about twenty minutes! Finally an older lady came to the window beside her and I told her the problem... she asked my name and poof, She pulled out an invoice which was right in front of the young girl with my name and the voucher for 4 senior citizens... This delay and the rude, uncaring attitude put a damper on the whole experience!!
Came on a day trip from Salzburg just to take this ride and visit the Old Town and we were not disappointed.
You start in the town and take the funicular train up to Hungerberg Station which offers a great view over the town, but the real highlight is the next two cable cars which take you up to the top of the mountain from where a magnificent vista can be seen with the whole of Innsbruck below you surrounded by snow capped mountains. Simply stunning and would thoroughly recommend.
This was awesome!!! :- Well worth a visit right to the top. The best part is that it's flexible, so with this ticket, you can go up and come down when you want it's valid only for a one way ascent and one way descent, and you can get off at each stop if you'd like, as you make your way up or down. But you can't go part way down and then come back up again. I went in May, so there was still plenty of snow lying around in Seegrube and at the peak, Hafalekar. The 360 degree views are outta this world! I also stopped in at the Alpine zoo, and spent about 3 hours there. The bears and wolves were very cute - but fast asleep though. Small word of caution - the zoo is built right into the mountain - and I can't believe I didn't see this coming - involves quite a bit of upward and downward trekking to get to many of the animal enclosures, so be prepared for this. Carry water and some snacks with you too to have at the top. There's only one restaurant and it's slightly pricey. Some of the stations have toilets, too. All in all, if you wanna get out at each station and look around thoroughly, this takes up about 6 - 8 hours of your day. If you're pressed for time, a quick ascent and descent only for the views might take you around 3 hours. I'm certainly gonna do this again, and soon! Cheers.
This trip was fantastic, from the first funicular train to the cable car to the top. It's amazing to send how efficient the service is operated to the cleanliness of the cars. My only criticism of the experience was due to not being able to use my e voucher on my phone as stated on my booking. The women at the Hungerburg station insisted on having a paper copy of the voucher meaning we had to return to the hotel to ask at reception to print for us which delayed the start of our of trip. The views from the top are amazing, the bars/cafe/restaurant are brilliant too and they serve gluehwein. From the streets of Innsbruck the Alps just look like snow topped mountains but when you get to the top a whole new world opens up, it's simply amazing. Would definatley recommend this trip but remember to print your tickets out on paper in case you get the same dinosaur we did
We took this tour in October and found it to be really nice. Along the way up and again from the top gave beautiful views of the city. It's a fun ride and the village up top offered a nice restaurant to stop at.
