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 went to ski to Patscherkogel during our stay in Igls. Even though all slopes were not open, the ski day was memorable due to: 1. Empty, well prepared and long slopes, 2. Excellent view of Innsbruck and surrounding area, 3. The feeling of history (past Olympic games). Reasonably priced ski passes. Sunny weather. Fully recommended.

The view from above is breathtaking! The hike up the hill is worth it and is beautiful too. I would not recommend this hike with small children, but I would for a good walk with dogs.

Went here for the first time this year, the ski bus took a while but it was definitely worth the trip from Innsbruck.

We came without any expectations... day before it we visited a Innsbruck's bang and enjoyed very much... we came early (must come early) to be able to see the valley view due to sun's direction... up there was pretty cold but the view we got was amazing... there is also opportunity to made a little track (2 hours) to the...

We took the J bus to Patscherkofelbahnen, as we read it was better than Nordkette. It did have it's benefits, but I'd say do both. We got a 2.5 km hike in to the top, where it was snowing however we warmed up at the rifugio there - best goulaschsuppe I've ever had! We then got back on the J... More

Take a Bus J and ride up the meandering route to Patscherkofelbahn, get down the bus, take a walk around Igls and Vill. You shall be promised a great view of life time, better than the Nordkettbahn ( though I would view Nordkettebahn as not to miss, I would say the Patscherkofelbahn CANNOT be missed ! ).

There are two easily accessible cable cars in Innsbruck. The Patscherkofel is a bit lesser known one, but offering better views over the city. Logistics: with the car (over Igler strasse) or with the bus J. From the mountain station you can really do two things in summer. Hike to the top of the hill (1 hour, easy uphill hike)... More

The Patscherkofel is a fantastic area on the south Alps but easily accessed from Innsbruck CBD. We stayed at h Hotel Innsbruck (fantastic) and caught the No 1 tram (fare included in Innsbruck card) to Bergisel. ( 10 min) If you have time go up to the Olympic ski jump, you won't be disappointed. Once at Bergisel transfer across to... More

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.

Thank Abi M
