The Patscherkofel has always played a big part in sports...

The Patscherkofel has always played a big part in sports history: Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976 with the legendary race of Franz Klammer, in the season 1998/99 the greatest team success in the history of the world cup with 9 racers of the ÖSV Super G team in the lead. The winner was Hermann Maier. In 2003 Michaela Dorfmeister won the wom-en’s downhill race, the two Super G races were won by Renate Götschl and Brigitte Obermoser.Ski along the tracks of the stars via the Olympic Run and enjoy the wide Family Run. The Patscherkofel offers slopes for all levels of ability and also an out-standing view over Innsbruck, the Stubai Valley, the Wipp Valley and Inn valley. The numerous moun-tains higher than 3.000 m will make a lasting im-pression on you

An easy cable car ride up (get an Innsbruck card from your hotel or tourist office as it is included). Was a bit worried as the second cable car was shrouded in thick fog, but by the time we reached the top the view was just perfect. The top of the mountain is flat with seating and I fell in... More

You can really get a feel for the Alps here - a pleasant cable car ride up takes you to an accessible hiking path in two directions. Take a hike up the the mountain top [less than an hour] and enjoy a drink and snack, or walk east and enjoy the panoramic views of the Inn Valley.

We have always enjoyed watching the You Tube video of Franz Klammer winning the Olympic Gold medal for his downhill for Austria in the 1976 games. This year whilst on holiday in Seefeld we decided we would like to visit it ourselves. We took the train from Seefeld to Innsbruck, then at the Hauptbahnhof, we turned right, then left, then...

The cable car that takes you to the top of Patscherkofel provides a panaroma that is gorgeous. Once at the top you will not find better hiking opportunities for newcomers to Austria...highly recommend!

If you have the time, then don’t miss this side of Innsbruck. Most people aim for the Nordkettenbahnen/Hungerburg Funicular (which is indeed totally worthwhile), but the trip in this traditional gondola cable car (though less reviewed) provides super views of the city and the other side of the valley. It’s included in the Innsbruck card – but make sure you... More

The Patscherkofelbahn is a traditional gondola cableway. The views over Innsbruck and the Inntal, you have while ascending or descending are spectacular. On top you find some easy walking tracks and you have also the option for longer and more difficult mountaineering. While in winter there is nice and easy skiing to be had, I personally would rate this area... More
