The Arlberg via ferrata

The Arlberg via ferrata in St. Anton am Arlberg in Tyrol offers a challenge for mountain enthusiasts. The mountain panorama is incomparable, but the three kilometre long via ferrata should not be underestimated. Snow can also be found in the wind gaps, which can be used as mid descents, in the summer. Please note: This via ferrata is very challenging. Experience and physical fitness are required!

Classic Alpine climb around Warth am Arlberg

The Hochtannberg nestles between the Bregenzerwald region, the Arlberg and the Lechtal. The mountains and summits await you for as far as the eye can see. The Widderstein in Warth-Schröcken am Arlberg im Bregenzerwald/Vorarlberg is a classic climb. In Lech am Arlberg in Vorarlberg, the north ridge of the Roggalspitz at the Spullersee lake is also enjoyable. In St. Anton am Arlberg im Verwalltal, the Patriol, which is over 3,000 metres high, stands above everything.

Ice climbing and winter via ferrata

Why only climb in the summer when climbing is possible in the winter as well? In the winter, the beautiful waterfalls turn to blue ice falls and are therefore ideal for ice climbing. The Alpine centre in Lech offers starting courses for beginners as well as ice tours for experienced ice climbers. Those who can't get enough of the summits in the winter should make for St.Anton am Arlberg in Tyrol. At Rendl am Arlberg, a winter via ferrata has also been set up.
