Forecast

An area of low pressure is situated over Central Europe! Low pressure does not necessarily mean bad weather as each low contains areas of rain as well as brighter areas. For today we should be pessimistic, however! Unfortunately, our region is at the heart of the main area of precipitation and we will therefore get thick cloud and frequent rain.

Tendency

Tuesday will bring changeable weather conditions with a mix of sunshine, clouds and showers. Wednesday will be a real dream day!

Have you already stood at 2,300 m above sea level today? If that makes you think of clumpy mountain boots, heavy rucksacks and an arduous climb dripping with sweat, think again! Experiencing the summit is so much easier than you might have thought. Because, in Innsbruck, as this walk impressively shows - thanks to the funicular railway and cable cars - the buzz of the city and the freedom of the mountains are incredibly close to one another. One moment you’re enjoying a cappuccino in a charming street cafe in the Old Town, half an hour later you’re marvelling at the stunning views from a Nordkette mountain summit. 

What's more, the Perspectives Trail is a gentle, relaxing path where you can keep stopping to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. The unique Alpine Zoo is also worth a visit, with its wide collection of local wildlife including lynx, bear, ibex, otter and lots more.

 


Route description:

 

  • Start at the Congress Station
  • Take the Nordkettenbahnen funicular up to the Hungerburg and the cable car up to the Seegrube
  • At the end of the Perspectives Trail (near the Seegrubenbahn station) continue on the gondola lift up to the Hafelekar
  • Walk on the Hafelekar summit (about 15 minutes) return by gondola and funicular to the Alpine Zoo station
  • After visiting the zoo, walk along Heinrich-Süss-Weg down to the River Inn
  • Cross Hans-Psenner-Steg bridge to the other side of the River Inn and then upstream back into the Old Town, with a possible detour through the Imperial Gardens (Hofgarten)
