Do you have a good head for heights? A view below is worth it every time. Enjoy glorious aspects of the surrounding Tyrolean mountains from the perspective of a bird. 

"Adlerblick" viewing platform

Enjoy a majestic bird’s-eye view of the village of Trins and the stunning mountain landscape of the Gschnitz Valley like an eagle in full flight.

Perched high above Trins, the “Adlerblick” (literally “Eagle’s View”) has become a popular destination reached by a gentle 40-minute walk. Leaving from the car park above Trins, take the route marked no. 30 towards the Blaser mountain. After around 20 minutes, you will reach a clearing in the forest with a fountain. The left-hand trail leads towards the Blaser mountain while the trail to the right takes you to the Adlerblick. The rest of the trail to the Adlerblick viewing platform is well signposted. 


Bergisel ski jump

The world jumps here. And here the world begins. The breathtaking view of Innsbruck, the fascination of a ski jump venue with an Olympic past and modern architecture characterise the Bergisel ski jump. The Café im Turm restaurant and the panoramic view terrace can be comfortably reached in just a few minutes in one of two elevators or by venturing up the 455 steps. From the 50-metre high tower, you can enjoy the stunning panoramic sight and the fascinating insights into this competition venue. In the summer, the ski jump facilities open as early as 8.30am.

Nordkette above Innsbruck

The mountains were never so close – the new Nordkette cable railway goes from the city of Innsbruck (Congress House/Löwenhaus station) up to the Hafelekar mountain. From an altitude of 2,300 m, you have Innsbruck at your feet. The Nordkettenbahn is an aerial runway with two sections, which go from the Hungerburg quarter over the Seegrube and then up to the Nordkette (Northern Chain - Hafelekar Peak -mountain station at an altitude of 2,269 m). The motor was renewed in both sections (Hungerburg – Seegrube, Seegrube – Hafelekar) as were all other supports, technical equipment and all pillars and traction cables. Furthermore, new telecabine/gondolas with an increased carrying capacity were also installed. The Seegrube and especially the Hafelekar mountain both have panoramic views of the city and the Inn Valley as well as of the Karwendel range. 

COMBI-TICKET with the ALPINE ZOO is also available!

City Tower in Innsbruck

The City Tower has the most beautiful view of the Innsbruck Old Town and the surrounding mountain ranges. The Gothic City Tower was built from 1442 to 1450 as the Town Hall Tower. 

Back then, the tower served as an observation and vantage point. After climbing the 148 steps, from 30 m above sea level, visitors can enjoy the magnificent view of the Old Town, its numerous tourist attractions and the surrounding scenery.
