Innsbruck is embedded in one of the most impressive mountain ranges in Europe – the Austrian Alps. The city finds itself surrounded by snowy, soaring peaks, which you can’t help but want to climb. While this was long impossible unless you were a serious mountaineer, in 2002 Zaha Hadid designed the Nordkettenbahn, which takes you right from the city center up into the mountains. There are three levels to explore: the first station on 1000 feet already offers breathtaking views of the Inn valley, but if you are looking for the full Alpine experience, there is one at 6,250 and a jaw-dropping 7,401 feet. See Tyrol the way it was meant to be seen; from high up above, surrounded by nature.
