Forecast

On Thursday we will be in a meteorological no man’s land! Neither high pressure nor low pressure will influence our weather and the air will be moderately humid. For our weather here this will mean a calm mix of sunshine and cloud.

Tendency

The weather situation will become more exciting from Friday! A strong, stormy low will form over the northern Atlantic and will reach us in the course of the day causing very humid and unsettled weather for the next few days. A lasting improvement in the weather is expected for Monday.

Walk in our ancestors’ footsteps! The "Hohe Birga" in Birgitz is the only open-air archaeological site in the immediate vicinity of Innsbruck. This excavation site of a pre-Christian Raeti settlement is located about 500 metres as the crow flies from the centre of Birgitz. The site is easy to reach, initially along a relatively flat path that leads past beautiful and well-maintained farmhouses and gardens and then slightly downhill along a paved road to the Hohe Birga excavations. The climb up the excavation hill and the route back up to the starting point in Birgitz is a little steeper. After the walk, it is well worth visiting the Rätermuseum (Raetic Museum) located in the village hall on the village square in Birgitz.
There isn't anywhere to stop for refreshments along the way so it's very important to take enough to drink with you. A small rest area is located directly at the archaeological site.
