Alone the entry point to the rope routes is an experience, offering a fabulous view of the Ennstal and the surrounding mountains.

Safety information

Please note!

Hiking via ferrata routes is a demanding sport amidst the gorgeous, rough nature. For your safety, please observe the following rules:

1. Via ferrata tours are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no height vertigo, and sure-footedness.
2. Always bring a helmet and via ferrata kit and attach to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions.
3. Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of the weather and consider it in particular regarding clothing and food supplies.
4. Always act with respect towards other mountaineers. Inform them about eventual dangers if need be.
5. Be careful with nature!

Alpine Emergency Numbers

Mountain Rescue 140
European Emergency Number 112

The rating of a via ferrata difficulty level is, equally to rock climbing routes, subjective, and it is for that reason to be taken as a reference. A rating system that is as much standardised as possible tries to even out the problem regarding subjective difficulty rating. In particular the individual factors such as a person’s height, technique, and fitness level, equipment, or mental state as well as the actual objective conditions (weather conditions, humidity, ice, elevation, length, etc.) make the rating even more difficult.

Turn-by-turn directions

„Florasteig“

The entry point to the rope routes alone is a valuable experience, offering a fabulous view of the Enns valley and the surrounding mountains. To pass the Florasteig without climbing equipment, you have to be sure-footed and free from vertigo.

Via Ferrata „Karl“

This route is advanced level and you should be well grounded in climbing. Some parts are difficulty level D. Via Ferrata „Karl“ is named after Karl Matuschik. He was a founder member of the mountain rescue and also chairman for years.

Via Ferrata „Julius“

This route is for climbing experts only. Some parts are difficulty level E and there for strength and stamina are essential. Via Ferrata „Julius“ is named after Julius Steiner. He constructed the road and lifts on Stoderzinken and also the Steinerhaus from 1958 to 1968. Pre-war he was a climber, skier and ski jumper and post-war he was the first director of operations of the mountain rescue.

Via Ferrata „Emil“

This is an ideal novice route and ideal for a first time experience. Via Ferrata „Emil“ is named after Emil Ritter von Horstig. He was the first pioneer on the mountain Stoderzinken. He also built the little church „Friedenskircherl“. In 1890 he initiated coal mining there.

Via Ferrata „David“

This route with difficulty level A/B is ideal for kids and offers an unforgetable experience, where they can prove their skills. Via Ferrata „David“ is named after David Zefferer. He was the last living miner of the coal mining on Stoderzinken.

Approach:

After you pass by „Friedenskircherl“ you follow the trail Florasteig (must be free from vertigo). You can find the history of the route below.

Route:

After you arrive at the grassland there are four versions to choose. You can find the history of the route below.

Descent:

Sind heute den „Franz“ gegangen...eigentlich zum Einklettern. Allerdings ist dies schon ein ausgewachsener Klettersteig und definitiv nichts für Einsteiger. Teilweise empfanden wir die Klassifizierung als zu gering eingestuft. Trotzdem ein top Klettersteig mit allem was ein guter Steig benötigt!

Super tolle Bedingungen, es waren keine Leute, sowohl auf Alm als auch im Klettersteiggarten. Beim Gipfelkreuz hatten wir tolle Sicht auf das Dachsteinmassiv
