Perpendicular rock walls drop away into the abyss, weird rock needles point up from slanting screes, narrow channels bore into solid stone.

The art of climbing is all in the mind, a show of strength for the heart, brain and muscles, a sport for those who literally wish to scale new heights. Each move must be right, each metre means not just overcoming an obstacle, but also overcoming yourself as you enter unknown territory. At one with the powerful rock high above, almost beyond nature, your own nature comes into play: strong and iron-willed, like the rock itself.

  • Safety is paramount when climbing. Climbing tours with a mountain guide are a safe and enjoyable way to experience the most impressive mountain adventures.
  • The Schlern, Plattkofel and Rosengarten massifs are all practically on the doorstep (Via Ferrata Climbing).
  • Alpine climbing schools offer a varied programme all year round for beginners and professionals alike: fixed-rope routes, climbing courses and glacier tours as well as ski touring in winter.
