Via ferrata "Franzi" at the Reiteralm

...the first via ferrata in the Schladming Tauern mountain range

Curios about the first via ferrata in the Schladming Tauern mountains? Then you probably should head for Reiteralm and the new via ferrata „Franzi“. The difficulty varies between „C“ (difficult) to „D“ (very difficult) – be especially aware when the rockface is wet!

After about a half an hour walk (direction Spiegelsee – trail n° 66) you will reach the entrance to the via ferrata, where you start your 1-hour climbing pleasure. Arriving on top you will be rewarded with a stunning mountain view. From there you can head back to the trail head in 2 directions – either you hike back via  Gasselhöhe or you choose the path via  the idyllic "Spiegelsee" ("Mirror Lake").

From € 60, - including guide and equipment (gondola ride / toll road not included ). We ask for appointment under No. 0043 664 950 5363
