It is amazing how persistent the low pressure has been over Central Europe, recently. A new area of low pressure will extend to our region from Italy. Sunday will bring complete cloud cover and almost continuous precipitation.

Tendency

On Monday, the weather will calm down a little, but we should not count on much sunshine. Tuesday will bring a deterioration again from the south.

A wonderful hiking trail located 2,000 metres above sea level that leads through one of Europe's largest stone pine forests.

The Zirbenweg trail is a popular hike that is widely renowned and always an uplifting experience. Located above Innsbruck, the hike covers part of the Adlerweg trail (the Eagle's Way) from the top of the lift at Patscherkofel to the Tulfeinalm mountain hut (Tulfes). You can get to the start of the hike by taking the Patscherkofelbahn lift up to an altitude of 1,952 metres above sea level. From there, the Zirbenweg trail follows a wide mountain path that leads from Patscherkofel towards Tulfes, 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.
