Innsbrucker Klettersteig | 2480m

Region and route description

The Innsbruck klettersteig is a via ferrata that leads over seven peaks of the Innsbruck Nordkette in the Karwendel. In two parts the Innsbruck via ferrata leads from Hafelekar via the "Langer Sattel" to the Frau-Hitt-Sattel - with numerous summits being climbed. Above all, this via ferrata has a lot to offer in terms of landscape - in addition to magnificent views of Innsbruck, almost 2000 metres below, you can also enjoy an incredible view of the glaciated mountains of the main ridge of the Alps. In terms of climbing technology, this via ferrata offers challenging and original passages (suspension bridge). Variety in the route is guaranteed, as the first part runs mainly along a ridge, while the second part leads through a labyrinth of rock towers, embrasures and very steep wall passages. 

There are two parts of the klettersteig. The topo of the klettersteig is available here. The maximum difficulty level of the klettersteig is C/D. The overall time of the klettersteig is 5 hours.

The starting point of the klettersteig is the Hafelekar. You can reach there by the cable car or a hike from the Hungerburgbahn.

By public transport: You can take the train to Innsbruck Hbf and then IVB bus to Hungerburgbahn.

By car: The address for navigation is Hungerburgweg 4, 6020 Innsbruck, Austria.
