Alpenlounge Seegrube Innsbruck

Aperitifs on the rocks’ at the Alpenlounge Seegrube

Innsbruck’s trendy hangout and meeting place at 1,900m above sea level

Renowned for their unusual location, the restaurants perched on Seegrube (1,905m) as well as further up on Hafelekar (2,256m) have been offering excellent food, combined with fabulous panoramic vistas, to skiers, hikers and alpinists for the past ninety years already. The most recent addition to Innsbruck’s ‘peak gastronomy’ high above town is the Alpenlounge Seegrube, arguably one of the trendiest hangout spots for both visitors and locals. On the upper floor terrace of the mountain restaurant, which was built in the 1920s to the design of Franz Baumann, stylish deckchairs invite you to relax and enjoy the sunshine, summer and winter alike. Obviously, the aperitifs served here come ‘on the rocks’ – in the truest sense of the word. And as you marvel at breathtaking views of the city far down in the valley and ringed by glorious mountains, the daily grind slowly dissolves – making room for a blessed state of Nirvana.

The Alpenlounge successfully blends listed heritage architecture and Zeitgeist, featuring comfy chairs, spacious bar area, finger food and fine drinks, lounge music and vast, panoramic windows, to enhance the location’s relaxing ambiance. The high feel good factor benefits not just avid sports people but also those of us who prefer a somewhat more leisurely approach: A funicular railway takes you in just twenty minutes from Innsbruck’s town centre up to Seegrube, a spectacular ride which, by the way, is part of the many benefits of the ‘Innsbruck Card’.

Every Friday night the motto at the Seegrube restaurant and Alpenlounge is to ‘Ride & Dine’. Starting at 6pm (last return journey at 11.30pm) the funicular leaves town every thirty minutes for a spectacular culinary evening. Great music and the pleasant ambiance provide a perfect setting for a veritable peak experience. The Alpenlounge is also ideally suited for hosting small meetings (seminar facilities) as well as group events. During autumn it becomes the venue for traditional ‘Törggelen’ evenings, a great opportunity to taste the new wines of the season, accompanied by roasted chestnuts and hearty Tyrolean fare. In July and August the Alpenlounge puts on a Sunday Jazz Brunch – and why not book the full ‘Jazz Brunch Package’, which includes a ride on the Flying Fox, a real adrenaline surge!
