CLIMBING IN SALZBURGERLAND Via ferratas in Taxenbach

The via ferratas in the Kitzlochklamm gorge are open from around mid-May when the gorge opens for the season. The via ferratas offer an extraordinary sporting experience in a charming setting. The roar of the Rauriser Ache river as an acoustic companion with a breathtaking view into the depths of the gorge. 

The Kitz via ferratas have different levels of difficulty, are very selective and creatively designed and should not be underestimated under any circumstances.  The cave sprint variant is one of the most difficult via ferratas in Salzburgerland and is only suitable for very experienced climbers. 


This via ferrata is ideal for warming up with a beautiful view of the other via ferratas in the gorge. The C rating is entirely justified and should not be underestimated.
