Climbing fun in Gastein

Climbing enthusiasts can climb to their heart‘s content in the climbing garden or improve their footing technique in the safe footing course. The entire range of climbing experience is located near the Kleine Scharte mountain station. The learner’s path gives you important tips about climbing trail.


On the Schlossalm, there are now % via ferratas (climbing trails) of all skill levels.

Attached to a rope between the rocks and a breathtaking ambience, you can try climbing up via seven different routes. The barely 8 meters-high wall is a fantastic experience, and your excitement by the time you clamber over the top will be enormous. Five of the seven permanent climbing routes are so-called “top rope”, meaning they feature a permanently anchored safety rope


On the safe footing course your via ferrata skills can be tested in a very short route, before climbing a real via ferrata. You practice the process and belay in a via ferrata. An exit is possible at any time.


The alpine climbing trail is a demanding circular walk for experienced hikers. Along the ridge the way leads you from the summit station Schlossalmbahn up to „Mauskarspitze“ and back. Having a good head for heights and firm footwear are required because on the left and right side of the secured path it‘s steeply downhill.


Slacklining is probably the most popular sport number 1 and we have probably the highest slackline park far and wide. At 2,050 meters above sea level a superb parcours was created for children and adults. Slacklining is similar to tightrope walking, and calls for a mix of concentration, coordination and balance. The line is stretched between two attachment points.  Special highlight: the 8 m high Highline!
