Turn-by-turn directions

Famous, popular, much-travelled and yet every time an uplifting experience!

The Stone Pine Path above Innsbruck runs from the Patscherkofel mountain station to the Tulfeinalm.

Catch the bus from Tulfes to the Patscherkofel station in Igls and then take the gondola up to a height of 1,964m. At the Schutzhaus Patscherkofel starts the footpath to the east, the so called Stone Pine Path, and also the Alpine Club's Patscherkofel Nature Trail (Naturlehrpfad). Europe's highest botanical garden, where there are more than 400 different high-alpine plants on display.

The Stone Pine Path follows a wide mountain path to the Boscheben hut. The gently undulating path; without any major height differences – runs at the tree line at 2,000m above sea level as far as the Tulfeinalm. Throughout the whole walk, there is a fine view over the Inn valley against the stunning backdrop of the Karwendel range opposite. Finally take the Glungezer lift from near the Tulfeinalm down to Tulfes.
