Forecast

A weak ridge of high pressure will dominate our weather on Sunday. It will dissipate the medium and high clouds, but the sun will not be strong enough to chase away all cloud in the valleys, where a few fog patches will probably persist.

Tendency

The next days will be average. There will be variable amounts of clouds, but only a few showers and sunshine at times.

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.

From Praxmar, hike down into the valley, cross the Melach river and walk south for a short distance along Lüsenser Straße road. Turn left (signposted) to follow the path that leads up through the forest in an easterly direction, past the Gallwieser and Aflinger mountain huts (not open to the public). Ten minutes above the Aflinger Alm, the route leads south-east towards the Gallwieser Hochleger. Shortly before you get there, turn left and follow the small ridge that weaves its way up Sömen mountain. Finally, head south along the ridge to the summit cross. At the top, magnificent panoramic views await. 


For the hike back down, you can either follow the same route or head east to the Potsdamer Hütte mountain hut, which is located 2,009 metres above sea level in the Fotscher Valley.

Forecast

On Monday, a weak area of high pressure will reduce the risk of showers but will not be sufficient for a cloudless sky. For our weather here this will mean a calm mix of sunshine and cloud with more sunshine in the morning and more cloud in the afternoon.

Tendency

The clouds are announcing a weak warm front that will pass over our region on Tuesday and on Wednesday bringing a few showers.
