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

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

good value !

This cable car ride is good value and could be combined with hiking on the mountain. Non hikers can take it both ways to see the lovely views from the top.

Although there is considerably less snow than I expected this year, I have found some wonderful things to do in Innsbruck. On the top of my list so far was my winter hike on Patscherkofel. Thanks to the Innsbruck Card (which I highly recommend for at least 48 hours--well worth it!), I took the cable car up to the top.... More

This cable car takes you up on the mountain opposite with the one with the Nordkettenbahnen on the other side of the valey. Overlooked by many, maybe because it is a bit futher away from the city, despite it gives better views of Innsbruck. From the city you can take the J bus, its terminus right at the front of... More

We went with my husband on Christmas Day. It was an unbelievable experience. We took the J bus to the terminal at Igls and then the cable car to the highest stop. We did a short 30 mins hike to the left, and reached astonishing views of the city and the mountains. Could not ask for more.

The historic Patscherkofel cable cars pay homage to the olympic games that were held here in 1964 and 1976, and the youth olympics in 2012. The cable car never gets that high from the ground, but the views on the way up are still spectacular. In summer there are some great walking trails at the top, including the Zirbenweg which...

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

this mountain is overlooked site by the Nordkette much less crowded and very quite yet interesting nature and with stunning overview of the city . the Zirbenweg road is gorgeous with great view . a bit long but it worth to walk the 7 KM

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...
