One minute you indulge in some leisurely shopping in Innsbruck’s historic old town - and in less than 20 minutes you find yourself on a mountain restaurant terrace at an altitude of 6,560 feet among sparkling snowfields, for afternoon tea.
 
As a much lauded result of the reconstruction of the Nordketten Cable Cars, you can now commence your journey on the new funicular in the very heart of the city. Designed by the late star architect Zaha Hadid, the unique construction of its four futuristic stations and the cable-stayed bridge across the river Inn set new standards in international architecture. The mountain has never been so close! Seegrube as well as the Hafelekar summit station are perfect starting points for leisurely hikes and thrilling mountain-climbing adventures.

Every Friday night the Nordketten Cable Cars take you up to 6,560 feet altitude to enjoy a romantic dinner with great views over the city at night, while every Sunday in July and August the Seegrube restaurant awaits you with an impressive jazz brunch well into the afternoon.
