The first part of this route opened in 1905 from what was then Südbahnhof (now the Hauptbahnhof) to Berg Isel where it connected to the local railways, as they were then, to Igls and Hall in Tyrol. It was extended later that year to Claudiaplatz. The final northern section, the loop from Claudiaplatz to Hungerburgbahn opened in 1924.

This is still essentially the route that operates today, but there have been several changes over the years:
  • For 1930 and 1931 summers the service was split with each section serving the Hauptbahnhof as the 1B from Berg Isel and the 1H from Hungerburgbahn
  • The route originally crossed the railway at Westbahnhof on a viaduct which was replaced in 1956 with some minor associated re-routing
  • New track serving Marktgraben and Innrain was opened in December 1995 and the service diverted that way
  • Berg Isel was officially renamed Bergisel in 1965 and the terminus Hungerburgbahn was renamed Mühlauer Brücke following the closure of the original Hungerburgbahn station in 2005
In the current timetable the service takes twenty minutes from one end to the other.
