Via Ferrata Eldorado Dachstein

20 secured climbing paths, one for children, and three for teenagers

The Dachstein limestone is known to be a rock with perfect climbing qualities. Hikers and climbers alike find a high Alpine paradise in the Dachstein mountain area. Hiking along a via ferrata is the secured version of climbing. Such routes through rock walls are secured with fixed steel ropes and iron pins. Even less-experienced alpinists can tackle this adventure along the fascinating rock faces. The top station of the glacier Gondola at the Hunerkogel at an altitude of 2,700 m is the starting point for many a tempting tour.

Austria's longest via ferrata: Vertical Drop

Reach the cross at top of the Dachstein via the Anna via ferrata (300 m diff. in alt.), the popular Johann via ferrata (800 m diff. in alt.) and the Schulter (The Shoulder) (250 m diff. in alt.). From the access point of Anna at 1,800 m up to the top of the Dachstein (2,996 m), you conquer Austria's longest secured climbing path, which is also one of the longest vertical drops of the Alps with almost 1,200 metres of altitude difference.
