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

We were excited to have a hotel next to the Patscherkofelbahnen, and were keen to check it out. But keep in mind that the lift only works when there is enough snow, and our arrival in Innsbruck mid-December meant we missed out.

I was there just yesterday and it was really amazing. You will definitely have a panoramic view of Innsbruck, the beautiful alps and probably the whole of Tirol. I bought the €25 combo ticket, for both the Bergisel and the Patscherkofelbahnen. You can choose whether you want to go down with the cable car or go down by foot if... More

We walked the Zirbenweg from Tulfes (Glungezer mountain) to Igls (Patscherkofel), you can also walk the other way. The route is 7km but seems longer. Be sure to pack enough water and some snacks if you walk from Tulfes because the only cabin you'll find if the Boscheben Hütte which is 30 minutes from the Patscherkofel lift. The views are... More

Fabulous views over Innsbruck and down the valley from the Patscherkofel summit. If you get off at the last but one station you can take the Zirbenweg - a nature walk with interpretation panels and learn more about the flora and fauna of the Alps around Innsbruck.

The Olympic Mountain is beautiful. We reached in the morning around 10 and there wasnt much queue for the cable car.A bit cloudy itself made it more splendid with cows grazing and scenic hiking routes. Worth visiting for the views from the top and the trekking route.Cable car ride is ok and included in the Innsbruck Card. We reached from... More

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

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
