Botanical alpine garden & hiking along the timberline
The Patscherkofel Alpine Garden is the highest botanical garden in Austria and has been owned by the University of Innsbruck since 1930. The ideal location directly at the timberline provides the perfect environment for naturally occurring plant communities such as dwarf shrub heath, high forest and tall herbaceous vegetation. For the interested visitor (free admission), a signposted circular trail awaits with educational information on the sensitive balance of these habitats worthy of protection.
