Heidi has been made with the adventurous climber in mind. It is the most difficult out the 4 Children's Via Ferratas and some of its C/D passages will be waiting for you. 

The highlight towards the end of your ascent is the rope bridge which will lead you to the Via Ferrata Kala. From there you will have impressive views of the Sattelberg Plateau.
