Incredible climbing and views that are highly recommended. Free and easy to do if you have a via ferrata set and basic experience. Possible to rent with the company if not. The guided tour is however greatly overpriced and frankly not worth it if you...More

This was a great hike/climb, a bit more physically demanding than the usual hike. However, there are plenty of breaks during the hike so one can relax and recharge. The average level of difficulty of the via Ferrata is a C, in an Austrian scale...More
