The rocky outcrops of the Burgstall south face near Pürgg form a well-known and popular climbing area. The Burgstall via ferrata was built as an access and descent route for the various climbing routes, but offers some interesting, well-secured passages. The descent from Burgstall leads to the very charming village of Pürgg (beautiful local church) and thus results in a beautiful round trip with climbing experience.

Safety information

Hiking via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

 

  • Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 
  • Always use a helmet and, a via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 
  • Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 
  • Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 
  • Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.
