Its a new installation with restaurants and playing areas for the children. The hiking options are good, especially the views of the valley and mountains across. Parking was paid. You can also park at the older installation at Heiligwasserweg 5 for free that is about...More

Enjoy great views from this smooth, fast and new cable car. You can get off halfway up the mountain where you change cars, or else just change cars - which takes 20 seconds - and keep going up to the top where you will find...More

It’s nice that you can take the “J” line bus from downtown Innsbruck right to the cable car station. It meanders thru a couple cute little towns (Vill and Igls) in the way up. Then you need to take a cable car up two levels...More

We did about half the Zirbenweg and then back. The ride up to the lift is awesome and the views are awesome.

The ride up the Patscherkofel was amazingly beautiful and very comfortable: one car per family/group. Really enjoyed the view and the almost flat walk on top of the mountain.

The cable car is new and there is a lot of constructing going on. It was a very quiet day. It all felt a bit "unwelcome". Tickets are quite expensive (21 euros per person). The trip to the top was beautiful. We started with a...More
