Description

It is possible to hike to Umbruggler Alm (1123 metres) from Innsbruck city centre but most people choose to skip out the urban section of the journey by riding the Hungerburgbahn train from the centre of the city to Hermann Buhl Platz - a small square in the suburb of Höttinger which is 200 metres higher than the main city. The Hungerburgbahn runs from Innsbruck Congress, which lies on the junction between Rennweg and Herzog-Otto Strasse, at the northern end of the city centre. A ticket to Hermann Buhl Platz costs 8 Euros (return) and saves you around 1 hour of walking and 200 metres of height gain. From the Hermann Buhl Platz all that is left is a lovely 35 minute hike (which is uphill throughout), on good and well marked paths through a forest, to Umbruggler Alm.
