Forecast

High pressure is falling now and the deep area of low pressure over the North Atlantic will extend to Central Europe. However, low pressure does not necessarily mean bad weather, especially here in the Alpine region. Foehn winds will pick up and be able to keep away any precipitation. They will even bring us occasional sunny spells.

Tendency

The foehn winds will cease on Friday! Temperatures will drop by 11 degrees at all altitudes! It will mostly be cloudy with precipitation.

Summit Tours

Hiking to the very top

Are you a mountaineering fanatic? Or would you like to become one? If so, you're in the right place! We'll show you the most beautiful summit tours in the Innsbruck area. Not all of the peaks are difficult to reach and they don’t all require top mountaineering skills.

You don't have to be a mountaineering great like Reinhold Messner to conquer some of the local peaks. Here we have put together an overview of two easy summit tours.

These tours combine the uplifting feeling of reaching the summit with a comfortable journey there. The magic word is: "Bergbahn". Because where there is a mountain lift or cable car, you only have to complete the last stretch of the route up to the summit cross yourself. Then nothing stands between you and the perfect hiking experience.

Some summit tours only require a short hike, the rest of the route is covered by a mountain lift or cable car. To see these summit tours, choose "easy" in the filters below.

Are you looking for the ultimate mountaineering experience? Would you like to reach the summit under your own steam? If so, choose "difficult". The results will then show routes for experienced mountaineers with good fitness levels.

This beautiful mountain hike starts at the top of the Nordkettenbahnen lifts, which means you can enjoy the journey up the mountain in comfort. The route follows a scenic high-altitude trail that leads towards Achselbodenhütte mountain hut and later climbs steeply up to the "Brandjochkreuz" summit cross on Brandjoch peak. The peak is located before the Vorderes Brandjoch and offers magnificent views of the Inn Valley, the city of Innsbruck below and the Wipp Valley stretching off into the distance.



Arrival, public transport

Forecast

On Friday low pressure will rise on, but as the weather has showed itself at its best for the last few days, we should not worry about the approaching short period of bad weather! We will see thick cloud all day long and it will be unstable.

Tendency

Saturday morning will still be cloudy and showers cannot be excluded. In the course of the day, however, the sun will gain the upper hand. Sunday will bring. On Sunday and on Monday foehn winds will blow again.
