Forecast

A low pressure area over Iceland is sending cool air from the Atlantic to the Alpine region. This air is so humid that clearer spells will be rare and most likely to occur in the afternoon. It will not be humid enough, however, to produce any significant precipitation.

Tendency

The next few days will still bring a few banks of cloud but then the sun will shine from cloudless skies once again! It will be much milder.

Walk in our ancestors’ footsteps! The "Hohe Birga" in Birgitz is the only open-air archaeological site in the immediate vicinity of Innsbruck. This excavation site of a pre-Christian Raeti settlement is located about 500 metres as the crow flies from the centre of Birgitz. The site is easy to reach, initially along a relatively flat path that leads past beautiful and well-maintained farmhouses and gardens and then slightly downhill along a paved road to the Hohe Birga excavations. The climb up the excavation hill and the route back up to the starting point in Birgitz is a little steeper. After the walk, it is well worth visiting the Rätermuseum (Raetic Museum) located in the village hall on the village square in Birgitz.

There isn't anywhere to stop for refreshments along the way so it's very important to take enough to drink with you. A small rest area is located directly at the archaeological site.
