To experience the majestic beauty of Tyrol, this the place to be. The Patscherkofelbahnen is what we commonly call rope-wayin India.

My Austrian friend took us all up here, all i can say is wow.Once out of the car there were cow on the mountainside and we walked to a little cafe for lunch.The walks are fairly easy but you have to be careful in places. FANTASTIC is all I can say.

A regular service taking you to a wonderful viewpoint where there is also a very good restaurant. A little pricey.

We paid 13.50 euros each to go to the summit. It takes around 15 minutes and the view from the top is amazing. Thick snow loads of skiers a restaurant and absolutely freezing. Make sure you are well wrapped up and well equipped

My wife, daugther (7) and I were there with an instructor. The beginner lift are perfect, they also have a magic carpet. They have put up a slalom course. Which is very good for training.

There are two valley stations: Patscherkofelbahn (big gondola) and Olympiaexpress. The ski tracks are mostly easy (blue) and a bit difficult (red) and therefore very suitable... More

We skied here on a half day (morning) ticket and caught the first cable car ride up the mountain(9:00). A half day ticket for an adult was Euro 26 (about $28). The cable car station is right at the bus drop off point in the village of Igls so it is super convenient. Just take the J bus from Innsbruck... More

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.
