Via ferrata Talbach

Beautifully landscaped via ferrata – right next to the Talbach Waterfall! The climbing route is designed so that the difficulty level increases on the way up. The easy entry area is ideal for beginners and children. The difficulty rating slowly increases in the lower section – training obstacle course – from A to D/E – perfect for exploring your limits. Emergency exits leading to the adjacent path are located after every increase in difficulty. The main section is suitable for advanced via ferrata climbers. Two long rope bridges form a real highlight, the second of which ends directly above the reservoir’s outflow, which turns into a thundering waterfall in spring or after heavy rain. The via ferrata is well secured with brackets and steel cable.
