Via ferrata for beginners and families
This via ferrata for beginners is highly inventive and worthy and suits perfectly for familes with kids who would like to start with that sport. The scenic view to the impressive Watzmann, down to Berchtesgaden and the beautiful Königssee is simply gorgeous and can be seen throughout the whole via ferrata. The rocks of the „Kleiner Jenner“ are crossed with a little ascent. Due to an existing Flying Fox and a wooden suspension bridge, there will be a lot of variety during the tour. Our mountain guide shows you how the ropes work and provides some hints and all the information you need to safely conquer to via ferrata. At the end of this exciting tour, you even climb up to the summit cross.
