The wonderful, 450 meter long Via Ferrata in Umhausen-Niederthai requires a good head for heights and surefootedness.
The first part of the via ferrata leads along mighty rock faches from Niederthai to a small resting area located right below the rock ledges. From here passionate climbers continue on the left side of the Stuiben Falls to the route's exit. Dare devils can cross the Stuiben Falls on a small steel rope overlooking the 159 meter high waterfall. Enjoy this truly outstanding perspective of the rushing mountain waters! The easier alternative can be found on the left side, leading towards the exit with less effort.
From there you reach the access point of the via ferrata in 20 min.
Parking: Parking lot Bischoffsplatz (chargeable)
