Forecast

The weather is barely changing at the moment. An area of low pressure lies over Central Europe and is heading slowly east. There will be sunny spells in the morning, and then the cloud will thicken and cause thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening.

Tendency

During the following days, we should lower our expectations of the weather! The general weather situation will not change and even more humid air masses will move into Central Europe.

This high-altitude walk from Innsbruck to the Karwendel Alpine Park guarantees wonderful views of the Inn Valley, Innsbruck, and the Wipptal and Stubaital valleys. In the other direction, walkers can catch a glimpse of the impressive Praxmarerspitze. The Goetheweg is, in parts, extremely narrow and rocky, meaning that surefootedness is a must. The descent via Arzler Scharte is quite steep. This walk begins at Hafelekar, the Nordkettenbahn cable car's top station, accessible directly from Innsbruck city centre. From here, take Route 219 to the west and follow the trail south of the Hafelekarspitze. After heading downhill for a short time, the walk follows a level path on the southern side of the mountain, then winds its way up and down before heading into the Mühlkar corrie. Continuing west, pass the Mendelspitze and head steeply upwards to the Mandelscharte, before going down towards the Arzler Scharte. The descent from the Arzler Scharte along Route 217 is steep along the Schuttkegel to the south, before heading straight downwards after the forest's edge. At the next junction (not signposted), turn right above the road and follow the narrow mountain path to the Arzler Alm alpine hut, and a well-deserved refreshment break. Finally, it's just a short walk along the signposted route to Hungerburg.
