Forecast

A strong low pressure area is situated over the Bay of Biscay at the moment. With warm air from the Mediterranean moving in at the front of the system, foehn winds will pick up.

We will therefore see a dry mix of sunshine and clouds with relatively high temperatures for the season.

Tendency

Before Wednesday, the foehn winds and moderately cloudy and showery weather will persist.

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.
