Forecast

Today’s weather forecast starts with really good news: Central Europe will fall under the influence of the Azores High today! However, this process will take a bit of time as it is a very large area of high pressure we are dealing with here. We should therefore not expect a cloudless or particularly warm day.

Tendency

The new area of high pressure is building directly over the Alps and will not move anywhere for quite a long time.

Geocaching

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


N 47° 17.666

E 011° 04.767
