3. City Tower
Climb 133 steps for the stunning views of mountains, Bergisel hill, the River Inn, colourful houses, Golden Roof and the medieval streets of Innsbruck.
Located right in the heart of the city centre, City Tower offers one of the best views of the city and surrounding Alps.
Address: Stadtturm Innsbruck, Herzog-Friedrich-Straße 21, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria
Entry fee: € 4,50
This is the priciest one but also the one with the most amazing view. The beautiful cable car Hungerburgbahn designed by world-famous Zaha Hadid will take you 2256 m above sea level. This ticket is also included in Innsbruck Card which also includes all the other paid viewing spots in its price.
Address: Innsbrucker Nordkettenbahnen
Ticket: € 36,50
Halfway between the city and top of the Nordkette, you can find Aplenzoo. Alpenzoo is one of the highest elevated zoos with its location up the mountain which gives you a beautiful view of the city below.
Hungerburgbahn also has a stop at Alpenzoo and is included in your one way up and one way down Innsbruck Card.
"The Alpine-Zoo is the only themed zoo of its type in the world that is home to such a complete collection of European alpine creatures, from animals to birds and fish." (x)
Address: Alpenzoo Innsbruck, Weiherburggasse 37a, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria
Entry fee: € 11
All of the 4 paid attractions are included in the price of the Innsbruck Card. I have used Innsbruck card on my first visit to Innsbruck over 10 years ago and think it is a good value for money, especially if you are in the city for more than a day.
