Cable Railway Museum
The lower station of the Nordkette has been home to the “Small Cable Railway Museum” for the last 5 years. The museum is not only popular among cable railway enthusiasts who want to learn about the history of the Nordkette Cable Railways, it is also fascinating for all those who want to experience the old Innsbruck. An authentic replica of the very first cable car to make the journey to the top of the mountain can be found at the museum.
The museum is actually a former classroom which has been given a new sparkle using metal cladding. Impressive pictures allow visitors to immerse themselves in the past and experience the spirit of days gone by. The museum also has a new feature where the visitor can peer through a magnifying box to see an enlarged version of the Hafelekar panorama!
To give visitors an idea of how far technology has come, a new cabin floats in the middle of the room showing just how much cable railway technology has developed since the 1930s. An interactive photo album leads visitors on a special journey of discovery into the worlds of the Nordkette Cable Railways. The museum is open during operating times and entry is free of charge.
Seegrube Panorama Trail
Why not try out the new circular hiking trail which starts directly from the patio area of the Seegrube Restaurant? The trail takes just 25 minutes from start to finish.
Hermann Buhl did not start his career in the far away Himalayas or Karakorum, but rather here in the Tyro, his real home was always the Nordkette. Buhl is still regarded by his peers as one of the most important rock climbers and high altitude climbers that ever lived.
