Patscherkofel

The local's favourite

Patscherkofel is a true hiking paradise. The mountain is easily recognisable, even for people who are new to Innsbruck: it lies to the south of the city and has a remarkable rounded peak and a distinctive radio mast on the summit. The people of Innsbruck lovingly refer to Patscherkofel as their "Hausberg" (local mountain). Generations of local skiers learnt here and it is also a particularly wonderful place to go hiking.

The "local mountain" is ideal for gentle hiking and this makes it especially great for families. However, connoisseurs will love Patscherkofel too. There are countless mountain huts and alpine guesthouses where visitors can treat themselves to excellent Tyrolean cuisine. Is it possible to eat too many dumplings? We say: "no"! Especially not when you've just done a walk to get to the delicious food. Take a look at our list of routes on Patscherkofel and pick your favourite.
