Surrounded by mountains, one should not miss the opportunity to explore the mountain scenery that Innsbruck has to offer. The most convenient way to get there is to take the cable car from the town to the mountain itself.
The starting point is located only a short walk away from the Goldenes Dachl. From there you could board a cable car to Hungerburg (868 m). The ride and the stations itself are an attraction itself for any architecture fans. The Hungerburgbahn hybrid funicular railway was designed by none other than the famed Zaha Hadid in 2007.
As our visit was in summer, there is a Jazz Sunday Brunch (27.00 EUR, adults) going on. Included in this package was a ride to Hungerburg (868 m) followed by a ride to Seegrube (1905 m) where you get to enjoy a buffet style brunch accompanied by live jazz music at the Alpenlounge
Brunch comes with a complimentary glass of prosecco (the cheap kinds =p).
Food items include a variety of breads, cold cuts, cheese, roasted potatoes, some kind of bread pudding, scrambled eggs and sausages.
Not as good as the breakfast we had at Weisses Kreuz but it was quite a worthwhile deal since it included all rides and even has a meal thrown in.
The views on top were awesome. Words from me probably can’t describe it. Hence, I shall let the photos do the ‘talking’.
