The Kaiserschützen via ferrata (difficulty B/C and 1+) was built in 1987 under the direction of Josef Hangl, a military mountain guide, in memory of the victims of the First and Second World Wars. The climb is special mainly because of its length and the delightful scenery. To enjoy a change from the sections secured with steel ropes, there are sections which can be walked but demand surefootedness, a good head for heights and mountain climbing experience. If you’re making good time, you can also take a detour to the summits of the Kleine Halt and Gamshalt mountains.
Requirements: a good head for heights and surefootedness as well as very good physical condition and alpine experience are absolutely essential!
Climbing harness, via ferrata set & helmet required!
Setting out from Wochenbrunner Alm, this is an all-day tour that is only safe in reliably fair weather.
Alternatively, you can start the tour in the Kaisertal valley and complete it over the course of two days, spending the night in the Hans-Berger-Haus.
