Mountaineering & Climbing in Tyrol

The imposing alpine world of the Paznaun offers ideal conditions for keen mountaineers. The peaks of the Silvretta provide you with a wonderful view far beyond the region.

Climb the innumerable summit crosses on diverse via ferratas. Whether inexperienced climbers or demanding mountaineers, everyone is sure to get their money’s worth.

The largest natural climbing wall in Austria is located not far from us with a width of 135 m and a height of 30 m. It provides plenty of fun climbing for climbers of all ages with up to five different routes on the climbing wall. The level of difficulty ranges from two to five (2–5). Even your little ones can show their skills on the boulder block which is located near the natural climbing wall. Soles are only half a meter from the ground, making it an ideal introduction to climbing for kids.

Climbing Routes in Ischgl

Via ferrata Greitspitz
This via ferrata is a bit short though there is a 2,850 m high summit with rewarding views of the valley. The difficulty lies mainly in area B as some short positions are slightly more difficult. Within 30 to 45 minutes, it extends to a 200 m-long steep road that leads to the summit of the Greitspitz. With a steel security cable as well as being equipped with a sufficient handle and stirrups, climbing proves to be quite a challenge for the avid climber.

Via ferrata Flimspitze
The Flimspitze via ferrata offers 120 meters in height and a total length of 200 meters. Since the via ferrata lies somewhere between being easy to moderately difficult (A to B), it can be completed in 20 to 25 minutes. Once you arrive at the top, there is a fantastic view that extends far beyond the Silvretta region.
