Forecast

After the dying cold front that brought us clouds yesterday, a weak high pressure area will reach us today. The weather will stabilize, but it will not be very sunny yet. After the last snow flakes in the morning, it will brighten up in the late morning. It will stay dry until the evening.

Tendency

During the next few days, our weather will remain changeable: Temporary sunny spells will alternate with periods of thick cloud and showers.

Alpine Garden at Mt. Patscherkofel

Description

Austria's highest botanical garden is located right next to the mountain lift station of the Patscherkofelbahn cable car at an altitude of nearly 2,000 metres above sea level. The garden, which covers 1.5 hectares and is maintained by Innsbruck University, is located right on the edge of the forest and is home to a stunning collection of natural treasures: edelweiss, gentian and auricula grow alongside dwarf shrub heaths and herbaceous bushes and are interspersed with exotic mountain flora from the Himalayas. In June, the Patscherkofel's alpine roses (careful, poisonous!) come into bloom, covering the mountain in a carpet of bright purple flowers. A walk on the mountain's circular hiking trail leads past a diverse spectrum of alpine plants from all over the world in just a few steps.
