This is an amazing trip and not to be missed in Innsbruck . The cogged wheel train ride and the cable car rides are fantastic and the views of the surroundings fabulous . We had perfect weather on the Sunday we chose for this tour and enjoyed every bit of it .
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.
