Tourist Information

Patsch is a village with wide-open views of Innsbruck, the Nordkette mountain range and large parts of the Inn Valley. The village is surrounded by nature at the foot of Patscherkofel mountain, yet it is also just a stone's throw from the city of Innsbruck. This makes it an ideal location for anyone who wants to enjoy a holiday in the countryside without giving up the conveniences of a city.

Patscherkofel

The village is also very appealing in winter thanks to the wide selection of winter sports. You can be on the slopes at Patscherkofel ski resort in no time.

In addition to the numerous options for hiking and biking, you can also get to know the local flora.
For example, on an evening walk through the colourful meadows of Rosengarten Nature Reserve.
Or explore mystical history, which is possible thanks to the archaeological excavations at Goldbichl.

During carnival, you can experience the traditional side of Patsch with carnival characters such as Huttler, Zottler and Schellenschlager. However, there is one very special difference: here the women also play a role. Carnival traditions in Tyrol are usually firmly in male hands but the women in Patsch have changed that. They are behind the "Schellenschlagen" carnival event, which is the traditional ringing of the cowbells in Patsch. The event brings the village to a standstill and transforms it into one big carnival celebration.
