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!

Highs and lows! This walk takes in not only the tower of the spectacular Bergisel Ski Jump, but also the Sill Gorge, Innsbruck's very own "canyon". 

It bears the name Sill after the River Inn’s "little sister", and takes hikers and walkers off into the untamed, romantic landscape of a Tyrolean mountain river. It’s hard to believe you’re in the very heart of the urban area! 

You can admire the fascinating river landscape, enjoy the lovely views and get an intimate sense of the remarkable proximity of city and nature.

  • G past the "Drachenfelsen", at the "Sonnendeck" (sun deck) either follow the panorama path or go down to the Sill Gorge
  • Due to a Brenner Base Tunnel construction site, the Sill Gorge is currently only accessible between the two pedestrian bridges and is an ideal destination on hot summer days
  • Return the same way from the Sill Gorge and continue following the “Panoramarunde” circular trail to the left
  • When you come to the Brennerstrasse, follow the Pierre-de-Coubertin trail to the right for about 100 metres until a short path leads through the forest onto the Bergiselweg trail
  • Walk past the houses on the Bergisel back to the Bergisel ski jump with access to the ski jump tower
  • Return past Wilten Abbey via Brennerstrasse and Leopoldstrasse to the Triumphal Arch.
  • Tip: if you want to shorten the walk, you can take the tram from the Bergisel stop, opposite Wilten Abbey, back to the city centre.
