Forecast

Weak weather fronts with thundery air masses are approaching from France. It will not be able to keep them away completely and this is why clouds will form around midday after a bright morning and produce thunderstorms and showers in the evening.

Tendency

The area of low pressure that is building over Central Europe today will also affect our weather here, unfortunately. It will not bring continuous rain, but very changeable weather conditions with only short sunny spells and showers or thunderstorms.

The Patscherkofel nature trail runs along the Jochleitensteig trail around Patscherkofel mountain. There are various stops along the way, where hikers can find information about the viewpoints and flora and fauna in the Patscherkofel-Zirmberg nature reserve. First take the Patscherkofelbahn gondola up to the mountain lift station. From the top of the lift, head west past Schutzhaus Patscherkofel and continue along the road towards Hochmahdalm. After about 15 minutes, you will reach the turnoff to the Jochleitensteig trail on your left. The hike leads through an old stone pine forest and has magnificent views of the Stubai Valley and the Stubai Glacier, as well as beautiful views along the Wipp Valley to the Brenner Pass. After following the Jochleitensteig trail for about 850 metres, turn left to follow the trail up to the summit of Patscherkofel (Patscherkofel Gipfel) and then head back down from there to the Alpengasthof Boscheben mountain hut. From the hut, continue west along the Zirbenweg trail and back to the Patscherkofelbahn mountain lift station.
