South Tyrol is a paradise for climbing fans. Many wonderful via ferratas and climbing gardens covering all degrees of difficulty await beginners and climbing professionals. It is possible to train here almost all year round thanks to the mild climate in the Merano region.
You will find eight routes up to 5a, ten routes up to 6a, twelve routes up to 6c and three routes up to 7b in the Burgstollknott - Partschins/Parcines climbing area. This means that climbing fun is guaranteed with a large selection of fixed-rope routes covering different levels.
The Juval climbing garden in Naturns boasts ten routes up to 5a, 19 routes up to 6a, 43 routes up to 6b, 23 routes up to 7b as well as eleven routes up to 8a, thus offering many possibilities for climbing fans with different climbing abilities.
The Heini Holzer via ferrata at the Merano 2000 skiing and hiking resort guarantees adventure for both young and old climbers alike. The ascent (perfectly secured with steel ropes) is of medium difficulty (A – B – B/C) and the last part of the via ferrata, the so-called Engelskante, constitutes a very impressive rocky passage.
Climbing equipment - harness, via ferrata set and helmet – is a requirement and can be rented on site.
