We needed to get the most bang for our buck from our 24-hour Innsbruck Card so we hopped on the Patscherkofel Cable Car for beautiful views and fresh air. Patscherkofel is a mountain which stands 2246 m [7639 feet] above sea level in western Austria, south of Innsbruck.
The mountain hosted several events during the 1964 and 1976 Winter Olympics. I imagine this mountain would be quite beautiful during the winter. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure I’m too old to learn how to do anything that requires physical coordination, so I don’t think I’ll be doing any skiing or snowboarding here in the future.
The cable car ride ends at the Panorama Restaurant. There’s a short hike to the summit, but we didn’t have enough time to walk to the top of the mountain.
Predictably, I made a panorama:
View the large.
