In the last ten years Via Ferratas/ Kletter courses have been built in and around Mayrhofen. Four of them directly beside the village, Easy, Intermediate, Advanced and the fourth added last year, a childrens course suitable from 5-6 years old, great fun for all the family. Each climb has a stop point mid way through so if you decide that you have had enough, then you do have the possibility to leave at set points. Reachable in a few minutes walk from each of our apartments. Two in Zell am Ziller and a very difficult one in Ginzling - ten minutes by car.
Unlike the “original” Via Ferratas in the Dolomites the climbs in Mayrhofen and surround are kind of new generation Via Ferratas - an individual sport or some call it a complete work out session. All the necessary equipment can be hired locally directly at the start of the climbs, guidance for the equipment use and there are several maps showing the climbing routes for you decide which one is most suitable for you.
The Via Ferratas in Mayrhofen all end up at the mountain hut Zimmereben, where you can regenerate on the patio enjoying the amazing mountain view, while enjoying a much deserved drink and something to eat.
