Climbing in Austria- Numerous Via Ferratas and Climbing Routes

Whoever wants to conquer the rocks up there, can do so on the via ferratas and sports climbing routes of the Fernau climbing park. You can get to the access areas in 15 minutes.

  1. Plan carefully! 
  2. Adjust your goal to your personal skills!
  3. Use full, standardised equipment (harness, via ferrata set, helmet, mobile, first aid kit)!

Notice for climbers

The Stubaier Gletscherbahn lifts are in high-alpine terrain. Unless you are in immediate proximity of the stations, you must expect high-alpine dangers. The climbing routes and the via ferratas are not part of the offer of the Stubaier Gletscherbahn lifts. The depiction of the climbing routes and via ferratas is not sufficient for tour planning. It is absolutely necessary to inform on the level of difficulty of the respective tour, the requirements on the climbers and the nature and quality of the routes and paths before embarking on a climbing tour. The Stubaier Gletscherbahn assume no liability whatsoever for accidents happening on the via ferratas and in the alpine terrain outside of the lift stations. In case of detrimental conditions (snow, storm, fog etc.) the via ferratas and routes are considerably more difficult to climb or even unclimbable! There is life danger during thunderstorms! We recommend a personal tour consultancy in the mountain guide offices.
