Innsbruck Region



Geocaching connects nature with hiking fun. It is ideal for families and those who don't like walking because it includes solving puzzles, completing tasks and searching for hidden treasure. The list below shows which 'treasures' are hidden in Innsbruck and the surrounding area. 


Period: spring – autumn

Hörtenberg Ruins

Now follow the path to the Hörtenberg Castle ruins. Trespassing on the neighbouring property is forbidden (see “Betreten verboten” signs), so please respect the owner's wishes. First mentioned in a deed in 1227, by 1300, Hörtenberg Castle was the place of jurisdiction of a very large region. On August 5th, 1706, lightning ignited the powder stores (approx. 1500 hundredweight), with the majority of the castle being destroyed in the ensuing explosion. The only remnant was the keep which is still visible today.

While you are here, you can also grab the cache Telfer Ansichten #1

Warm, humid air masses remain stationary over Central Europe. They will bring a calm, yet partly overcast morning and a bright afternoon. With the air becoming muggier throughout the day, thunderstorms will break out.


Even if today’s weather is more than reasonable, we will be even more satisfied on Thursday, on Friday and on Saturday! The clouds will continue to clear and temperatures will further rise.
