FAQs: Via Ferrata in Germany

What should I know about Via Ferrata Germany?

The Republic of Germany lies in the heart of Europe, bordering Denmark to the north, Poland and Czech Republic to the east, Austria and Switzerland to the south, and France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxemburg to the west. After Russia, it is the most populous country in Europe, and its territory ranges from forested uplands and high alpine mountains to the northern lowlands and shores of the North Sea.

Why should I choose Germany for my Via Ferrata adventure?

World-class terrain

The mountains of Germany have long been a world-class destination for all types of outdoor sports, particularly climbing. Whether it’s the east crest and north face of the Alpspitze, the great scenery that surrounds the peak of the Zugspitze, or the challenging climb on the Iseler mountain, the wild German landscapes form a dramatic background to via ferrata climbing.

The centuries old society of the great southern state of Germany offers a mixture of famous forests and mountains to produce some spectacular scare stories and mythical creatures.

Rudi was awesome. Very knowledgable and gave me a lot of climbing pointers for via ferrata. Also, super helpful with recommending other great sites in Austria and Germany. I hope to climb with him again when I’m back in central Europe.

Guide was Reini. He guided us at just the perfect speed to be back in 5 hours at the alpspitzbahn top station. Highly recommended. Great experience - first via ferrata!

Was a great tour! We did Geierwand Klettersteig instead of Alpspitze due to snowy conditions, and guide was Moritz Filger.

I loved my excursion! Rudi is a great guide who has been guiding for over a decade and has a lot of experience--yet was incredibly patient with me as more of a novice climber. For purposes of this tour, Rudi is also from the area and had a lot of local insights. Thanks for the great experience, Rudi and explore-share :-)
