This period of fine weather will have to take a short break now. Cooler air from the Atlantic will replace the warmer air from the Mediterranean, a process that is always accompanied by thunderstorms in summer.
We can easily bear todays unfavourable holiday weather as friendlier weather will return on Monday and persist for the next few days.
A pleasantly scenic tour for lovers of tributary valleys.This tour to Meissnerhaus starts in the sleepy village of Ellbögen and runs south of Patscherkofel, Innsbruck's favourite mountain, to the quiet and picturesque Viggartal. From the Zirbenhof on Oberstraße in Ellbögen, the route first quickly rises via two hairpins, before levelling out a little at the northern edge of Mühltaler Berg in Viggartal through the forest to the beautifully-located Meissner Haus alpine hut. For bike & hike lovers, we recommend some refreshment at Meissner Haus, followed by climbing the Patscherkofel on foot towards Glungezer (alpine hut at the top, serviced and with accommodation), Morgenkogel or Kreuzspitze.
