The Hungerburg Funicular

The Hungerburg Funicular

The new Hungerburg Funicular was designed by star architect Zaha Hadid and was officially opened in 2007.

The funicular set new international standards for modern architecture due to the extraordinary design of the stations. According to Zaha Hadid herself, she was inspired by the ice and snow landscapes of the region. As a result, the four stations, Congress, Löwenhaus, Alpine Zoo and Hungerburg resemble icy glaciers, giving the impression that the nearby mountain is right in the heart of the city.

The contrast between the arched shape of the roofs and the firmly anchored concrete bases make the stations unique, and gives them an almost magical sense of weightlessness.

Onward Journey to the Seegrube and Hafelekar

After arriving at the Hungerburg, the journey continues with the panorama cable cars of the Seegrube and Hafelekar cable railways and the picture begins to change: The carefully renovated station buildings, originally designed by the historic Tyrolean architect Franz Baumann, become the centre of attention. As the cable car rises and gets closer and closer to the top of the mountain, the hustle and bustle of the city becomes lost in the beauty of nature.

Franz Baumann the Architect

Franz Baumann the Architect

Franz Baumann is one of the architects whose work has had a lasting impact on the “Classic Modern” in the Tyrol.

He was born in Innsbruck in 1892 and attended the Higher Technical Institute in the city. During his education, he completed several internships with a construction and planning firm in Innsbruck. On completion of his education, he spent three years in Meran where he worked on large hotel and cable railway projects.

After the First World War, Baumann worked again in Innsbruck and in 1923 he gained his Master Craftsman’s Diploma for the construction sector.

He began to regularly take part in competitions and finally made the breakthrough with the realisation of the Nordkette Cable Railways project in 1927/1928.

From this point on, he worked as a self-employed architect and realised further projects in Innsbruck such as the Happ Wine House (1927), Hötting Middle School (1929/1931), Ortner House on Haydn Square (1932), The Holzmann Villa on Rennweg (1936) as well as hotels throughout the Tyrol.

He completed his civil engineering education in 1933, and was then officially permitted to use the occupational title of architect.

It is estimated that Baumann designed more than 1,000 buildings during his career.

Franz Baumann died in 1974 as a highly respected citizen of Innsbruck.
