Tour description

The Kaiserschützen via ferrata (difficulty B/C and 1+) was built in 1987 under the direction of Josef Hangl, a military mountain guide, in memory of the victims of the First and Second World Wars. The climb is special mainly because of its length and the delightful scenery. To enjoy a change from the sections secured with steel ropes, there are sections which can be walked but demand surefootedness, a good head for heights and mountain climbing experience.
Surefootedness and a good head for heights are essential!
Climbing harness, via ferrata set & helmet required!
