The weather over the next few days will be influenced by high pressure and a warm and dry southerly air flow. Friday will be mostly cloudless. On Saturday and Sunday, banks of clouds may pass over our region.

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.

INSIDER TIPS
  • When Innsbruck's church bells ring out and, not to be outdone, the wolves in the Alpine Zoo start howling, this is something really worth hearing
  • The Hafelekar is the start of the Hafelekarrinne, one of the steepest ski routes in Europe
  • In summer Qigong is on offer several times a week in the Imperial Gardens - free of charge, simply join in (from 6:30am)!
  • Scenes for a part of the famous "Sisi" movies were filmed on the Hafelekar in 1955, as well as for the film "The Vulture Wally", German title: Die Geierwally. (You can visit the Geierwally hut which is just a few metres from the Hafelekar mountain station and, 50 years after the event, visit the original location of the legendary film!)
