Forecast

We will experience typical foehn weather conditions on Tuesday. The sky will be bright with some mountain peaks being shrouded in “foehn fish clouds” (in technical jargon: “Altocumulus lenticularis”). The wind will be gusty and temperatures will of course be mild.

Tendency

On Wednesday, the foehn winds will reach their peak gusting to more than 120 km/h and we will see positive values up to 4000 m. In the valleys, temperatures will be unusually warm for the season. The foehn winds will cease on Friday or Saturday!

Mountain bike tours

TOURS, TRAILS & CHEESE DUMPLINGS

That is mountain biking in Innsbruck. First you pedal hard uphill. Then you enjoy a summer bike stop at one of the many mountain huts and alpine restaurants that are often located right on the route or may even be your destination. Refuelling à la Innsbruck: Kaspressknödel cheese dumplings. Are your calves burning? If so, simply relax and enjoy the views of the surrounding mountains a little longer before getting back on the saddle.

A challenging bike & hike tour that starts at the Planötzenhof restaurant. The route initially follows a forest road with a consistently steep incline and a few short level stretches. After approx. 1 km, the route reaches the Höttinger Bild chapel. Heading further upwards, the route takes a left onto the Bärfallweg trail and follows it to the Rauschbrunnen alpine guesthouse (1,092 m). After 2.75 km, the connecting road goes right (for approx. 2.5 km) towards the Höttinger Alm and Arzler Alm mountain huts. From there, keep left and follow the three bends to the end of the Achselwaldweg trail. Please note that there is no mountain hut at the end of the Achselwaldweg. Experienced hikers can take the turnoff at the final bend and continue up to the Achselkopf, the beautifully-located Achselkopfhütte mountain hut (1,560 m) and the panoramic Brandjochkreuz cross (2,268 m).
