Climbing in the Stubai Valley

No any other valley in Tyrol offers via ferrata trails and climbing gardens in such quantity and variety.Due to its high alpine beauty and optimal conditions, the Stubaital is a Dorado for via ferrata climbers.

The majority of the free climbing routes in the area of Kalkkögel and Pinnistal are very serious routes with difficult protection possibilities, in partly not reliable rock. These tours are reserved for very experienced alpine climbers.

The sport climber will find THE special experience in the secured climbing gardens of the Stubaital.

Some piton secured multi-pitch routes and a variety of challenging alpine climbing routes can be found in the Stubai.

In winter, mountain sports enthusiasts especially appreciate icefall climbing. The icefalls in the Pinnis and Unterberg valleys are among the most important ice tours in Austria.
Beginners try the sport at the ice climbing tower on the Stubai Glacier, gladly also at a course offered by the Stubai mountain guides.

In winter you can scramble in the climbing hall in Fulpmes.

The Adventure Park in Fulpmes , the largest high ropes course in Tyrol, offers 130 exercises in 13 courses, where children have just as much fun as professional athletes.

Note for climbers

The via ferratas, climbing routes and climbing gardens of the Stubai Valley are located in high alpine terrain

High alpine dangers are to be expected. The representations of the climbing routes and via ferratas shown here are not sufficient for tour planning. In any case, it is necessary to inform yourself about the degree of difficulty of the tour, the demands on the climber as well as the route and via ferrata characteristics before starting a climbing tour.

The climbing routes and via ferratas are partly maintained by the mountain guides.
However, they do not assume any liability whatsoever for accidents on the via ferratas and in the alpine terrain. In adverse conditions (snow, storm, fog, etc.) the via ferratas and routes become considerably more challenging or impassable! In case of thunderstorms there is danger to life.
We recommend a personal tour consultation in the mountain guide offices.

If you notice any damage to a via ferrata/climbing garden, please report it to the mountain guide offices or to the tourist office. Thank you!
