Forecast

On Sunday we will get typical foehn weather. However, it will not bring blue skies and clear views as we learned in school but instead quite dense cloud. Fortunately, a few rays of sunshine will break through the clouds from time to time.

Tendency

Monday won’t bring any significant changes yet. The weather will remain changeable with dropping temperatures. On Tuesday a ridge of high pressure will build.

Nockspitze, a mountain also known as Saile, is located in the Kalkkögel mountain range in the Stubai Alps. The wonderful hike up this beautiful mountain boasts some of the most spectacular panoramic views in Axamer Lizum.

A special highlight: sunrise on the beautiful high plateau surrounded by alpine flora.

Wonderful 360° views of the city of Innsbruck, which is the capital of the state of Tyrol, and far along the Inn Valley. 


Route: Start at Axamer Lizum car park, head straight on past the bottom lift station of the Olympiabahn funicular and continue until you reach the avalanche barrier. From there, turn right and follow the signs to Halsl. From Hals, a narrow route zigzags steeply up to the turnoff for Saile/Nockspitze. This trail leads over rocky terrain to the beautiful high plateau and summit cross.

Please note: hikers must be sure-footed and have good hiking equipment for this trail.


The route back is the same until the turnoff for the Birgitzköpflhaus mountain hut. From the Birgitzköpflhaus, you can either take the 2-seater chairlift back down into the valley or follow the Butterbründlsteig trail via the Birgitzer Alm mountain hut to Axamer Lizum car park.

(Please note the lift operating times)
