Forecast

Under the large system of low pressure over Central Europe we will continue to be influenced by mild air. Such weather conditions will hardly make us jump for joy of course: the weather will be changeable with temporary clear spells and periods of thick cloud. Showers may occur.

Tendency

The area of low pressure will only move on slowly, meaning the weather conditions will stay much the same in the next days.

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.
