Forecast

On Wednesday, small pressure differences will determine the weather scene, which means that the air will become stationary and that neither high nor low pressure will be dominant. Our weather will therefore be neither fish nor fowl: longer sunny spells and cloudy periods will alternate, with showers being very rare. The wind will be weak at all altitudes and temperatures will be around the seasonal average.

Tendency

On Thursday, the westerly airflow will contain some dry air masses and the clouds will mostly dissipate. On Friday, the cloud will thicken again.

Back to list
Take the Patscherkofelbahn gondola from Igls up to the mountain lift station on Patscherkofel mountain. The Zirbenweg trail leads east from in front of the mountain refuge and is relatively flat as it leads through old Swiss stone pine forests and mountain pines to Boscheben. After about 25 minutes, the trail branches off to the right towards Viggarspitze peak. The hike offers magnificent views of Innsbruck, the Inn Valley and the Nordkette mountain range. It is possible to extend the route by continuing on to Glungezer mountain. The hike back follows the same route. Alternatively, you can join the Gipfelweg trail at Boscheben and follow it up to the top of Patscherkofel or you can take the Jochleitensteig trail that leads around Patscherkofel and back to the mountain lift station of the Patscherkofelbahn gondola.
