Climbing

Adventure, sports, & action in the climbing gardens and via ferrata routes

Climbing and mountaineering are among the oldest sports in the Zillertal. The Zillertal and Tuxertal made a name for themselves as a mountain climbing destination early on.

The via ferrata routes in the Zillertal are ideal for those who want to experience a little more. The routes lead through sometimes steep and spectacular walls. With fixed steel cables, brackets, ladders, and footholds, you can climb higher and higher on the rock. The difficulty levels of the via ferrata routes range from A (easy) to D/E (very difficult). The easy routes can usually be mastered by families with children. The prerequisite for each via ferrata climb is appropriate equipment as well as mountain experience, surefootedness, and a head for heights. This trendy sport rewards you with a special “mountain feeling” and powerful views!

  • Spannagel climbing area in Hintertux
  • Gschöss-Penken climbing garden in Mayrhofen
  • Knorren-Penken climbing garden in Mayrhofen
