The Reinhard Schiestl Via Ferrata is somewhat more difficult than the Via Ferrata at the Lehner waterfall - some hard physical work awaits you! The trail leads up an almost vertical granite face and is secured all along by a wire rope, clamps and rungs. At the exit spread the pastures of Burgstein from there you enjoy a fantastic view of the Stubai and Ötztal Alps.

 

Trail length and time required

200 m of altitude gain and 300 m of rope length. 1.5 - 2 hours, including descent approx. 2.5 - 3 hours.
