Intermediate via ferrata tour in a limestone rock wall, featuring a height of about 400 meters. Most parts of the tour are grade B but you shouldn't underrate the height and the time required as you need about 2.5 hours for the ascent. Bring enough to drink especially on warm days! There is a mini and a midi variant with several exit points, therefore this via ferrata route is also suitable for skilled beginners. There is no other emergency exit! A small rope suspension bridge, "Innschwebe", and the uninterrupted panoramic view of the lnntal Valley promise rewarding moments. Due to the very sunny location this route is accessible almost all year round.
Trail length / Time required
Almost 400 meters of altitude gain on a total rope length of about 800 meters. Ascent 2.5 hours, descent 0.5 hour.

At the end of the route you take the slightly descending, signposted trail on the right (east) – which becomes much steeper after a while. Continue down to the access point of the Simmering climbing garden. Back to the car park on the Apple Road.
