Discover the home mountain at a run
Explore the Patscherkofel on one of our trails: whether for beginners or experts, our four routes offer everything a trail runner could wish for. They can all be found here.
The "Kofel-Shortcut" starts right by the mountain station and leads via a flat forest path to the beginning of the "Jochleiten-Steig", then follows the Panorama Trail back to the mountain station.

A wonderful and challenging trail running route that takes in all three of the surrounding peaks. If all three are too much, you can simply shorten the trail by taking the Stone Pine Path from Boscheben and leaving out the Patscherkofel.

Start at the mountain station and, after a short stretch on the Stone Pine Path, descend to the Issalm. There follows a steep ascent up to the Neunerspitze peak. From the summit we then take a short steep downhill into the Frauental valley, then head up to the Viggarspitze. A downhill takes us to the Stone Pine Path, which we follow to Boscheben, then over the east ridge to the last summit, the Patscherkofel. Finally, a sharp downhill of almost 300 metres takes us back to the mountain station.
