The valley station of the Hungerburgbahn was poorly signposted. However, the ride on the cable car was very nice. We visited the zoo, which is really worth a visit

We didn't feel the need to go all the way up so this was a super simple, streamlined experience to see both the zoo and have lunch with a view.

The zoo is amazing and it was so easy to scan the QR codes on the phone. The view further up on the cable car was fantastic. Excellent value for money!

Ride the rails to the heart of the Alps

The stations of the Hungerburg funicular, designed and planned by star architect Zaha Hadid, have become some of Innsbruck’s most famous landmarks, representing the state-of-the-art architecture in the heart of the Alps. Closely resembling Alpine glacier formations, the 4 stations of the Hungerburg funicular are worldwide unique in style. In as little as 8 minutes you can travel from the city center to Hungerburg, where you will enjoy a breathtaking view over the city of Innsbruck. Nostalgia – the cable car museum right inside the bottom station of the Seegruben cable car takes you on a ride through the history of the Nordkettenbahnen. The “Theresa Church” is only a few steps away from the observation deck.
