Taking the scenic train from Verona to Innsbruck in Austria was amazing. In the summer of 2015 I took the awesome train journey from Verona in Italy to Innsbruck in Austria. It takes about 3.5 hours and the journey takes you through the Brenner Pass. The Nordkette mountain is easily accessible from the centre of Innsbruck.
Innsbruck has a backdrop of amazing mountain scenery and if you go you can’t miss taking the journey to Nordkette. The journey starts right in the centre of Innsbruck with The Hungerburg funicular which takes just 8 minutes to reach the cable car that takes you to The Seegrube, at an altitude of 6,250 ft.
Another short cable car then takes you to Hafelekar at an impressive 7,401 ft and the panoramic views are just amazing. The views must be some of the best in Europe. It’s just a short walk from the cable car station to the highest point and you get fantastic views over Innsbruck and the mountains in the distance. The photos below were both taken near to the top.
