Forecast

On Wednesday foehn winds will blow again. They will be strong enough to keep showers and thunderstorms away, but they will not succeed in dissipating all the clouds. We will therefore see a dry but rather cloudy day with mild temperatures.

Tendency

We are in autumn now and thus in the middle of the foehn season! This time of year is particularly known for its long-lasting foehn periods.

Before Tuesday we will experience just such a foehn period: the wind will be strong at times allowing fair and very mild weather.

Alpine Garden at Mt. Patscherkofel

Description

Austria's highest botanical garden is located right next to the mountain lift station of the Patscherkofelbahn cable car at an altitude of nearly 2,000 metres above sea level. The garden, which covers 1.5 hectares and is maintained by Innsbruck University, is located right on the edge of the forest and is home to a stunning collection of natural treasures: edelweiss, gentian and auricula grow alongside dwarf shrub heaths and herbaceous bushes and are interspersed with exotic mountain flora from the Himalayas. In June, the Patscherkofel's alpine roses (careful, poisonous!) come into bloom, covering the mountain in a carpet of bright purple flowers. A walk on the mountain's circular hiking trail leads past a diverse spectrum of alpine plants from all over the world in just a few steps.
