Forecast

The current area of low pressure will leave us! The cloudy remnants will clear during the morning and we will get a few hours of bright and clear weather. Already by the afternoon, new clouds will build and probably produce some showers.

Tendency

During the next few days it will be warmer, but with the air becoming quite sultry at times occasional thunderstorms may occur, especially in the late afternoon and evening.

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.

INSIDER TIPS
  • The Triumphal Arch is not made of wood, as was customary at that time, but carved out of stone. The sculptors Constantin Walter and Johann Baptist Hagenauer wanted to reuse stones from the recently demolished town gate. So, although the columns were made of wood, the archway itself consists of blocks of Hötting breccia.
  • Zaha Hadid has left her mark in Innsbruck. In addition to the Bergisel Ski Jump, she also designed the Hungerburgbahn stations.
  • Not only are there ski jumps as part of the annual Four Hills Tournament (3 and 4 January), show ski jumpers can also be seen in action every day from May to mid-October.
  • On the Bergisel you can see for yourself the awesome prospect that faces ski jumpers from the top! If you have the nerve, you can sit on the launch platform, safely secured by a professional, and look down into the abyss. Feel those goose bumps already?
  • The super fit run all the way up the 455 steps to the top of the jump. But the easy option, which takes just two minutes, is to take the inclined lift.
  • Worth seeing: you can watch lots of kayakers when the River Sill is running high.
