Forecast

Forecasters do not very much like their job when it comes to forecasting the influences low pressure together with humid air has on our weather! An area of low pressure has built over the Mediterranean Sea and on Tuesday, it will influence our weather too: We will see mostly heavy cloud and areas of precipitation that will pass over our region.

Tendency

For Wednesday no significant changes are expected. On Thursday, precipitation will almost cease with even some clearer spells in the afternoon. For Friday, we will get calm and sunny autumn weather.

Patscherkofel and Viggarspitze

The new Patscherkofelbahn lift takes you up to the mountain lift station, which is the start of today's hike. The first destination along the hike is the Patscherkofel Gipfelhaus, which is a mountain restaurant that you can get to either along a well-prepared forest road or an easy-to-navigate mountain path. From the Gipfelhaus, you continue east towards the Boscheben alpine guesthouse, where you can enjoy hearty Tyrolean cuisine. The restaurant's wonderful terrace boasts views of the secluded Viggar Valley and the city of Innsbruck with its impressive Nordkette mountain range. It is also possible to spot the Zugspitze massif and the first peaks of South Tyrol. 

From Boscheben guesthouse, you continue towards Viggarspitze peak. The trail leads along the ridge towards the peak, passing a depression just before it starts to get steep. You then continue along a mountain path into high-alpine terrain and have one more steep section to conquer just before the Viggarspitze summit. At the summit, you are rewarded with fantastic views of the Stubai Alps, the Wetterstein mountains with the Zugspitze and the Nordkette mountain range.

The Zirbenweg trail, which is a well-known panoramic path and nature trail that links the mountains of Glungezer and Patscherkofel, leads you on a safe, easy and botanical hike through the largest primeval Swiss stone pine forest in the Alps. There are numerous benches along the path, as well as information boards that provide interesting descriptions of the trail.

Once back at the Patscherkofel mountain lift station, you take the lift back down into the valley.
