Climbing and via ferrata
Paradise for climbing fans!
On the Dachstein 14 via ferrata, superbly organised climbing tours, signposted glacier trails and countless hiking routes await the visitor.
ATTENTION: The Irg Klettersteig is no longer accessible (the first 40 meters of rope have been dismantled, will be removed as soon as possible) - the IRG has been replaced by the IRG II (this climbing route is already finished and can be climbed).

The Dachstein massif has unique weather conditions owing to its height and isolated setting.
Within a matter of minutes conditions can change completely and these extreme fluctuations must be taken into account:
This means every tour must be planned carefully!
- For precise times, information on difficulties and other questions please contact tourism or mountain guide offices well in advance!
- Be aware of the danger posed by lightning on via ferrata!
- Make sure you have the right equipment (crampons, pick, rope) when on the glacier!
- Alpine experience, the correct safety kit for via ferrata and appropriate equipment are essential!
