Forecast

A large area of low pressure is situated over Central Europe! Low pressure does not necessarily mean bad weather as each low contains areas of rain as well as brighter areas. For today we should be pessimistic, however! Unfortunately, our region is at the heart of the main area of precipitation and we will therefore get thick cloud and frequent precipitation.

Tendency

On Wednesday, high pressure will increase and the risks of showers decrease. Simultaneously, temperatures will rise.

You can get to the start of the hike by taking the Patscherkofelbahn lift up to an altitude of 1,965 metres above sea level. From there, the Zirbenweg trail follows a wide mountain path past the rather remote Boscheben mountain hut. The path is gently undulating and follows the tree line at over 2,000 metres above sea level without any significant changes in altitude. The route takes you through centuries-old stone pine forests and has breathtaking backdrops and stunning views of the Inn Valley every step of the way. On the other side Innsbruck, the impressive Nordkette mountain range rises up and marks the start of the Karwendel mountains.
After approximately one kilometer you follow the signs to Issboden and descend to the Aldraner Alm (mountain pasture) and finally you reach the village of Aldrans. There you can take the Postbus back to the starting point.

Postbus - daily, see http://www.innsbruck.info/pdf/postbus_zirbenweg.pdf; free for guests with a Welcome Card.
