A climber’s paradise

The quiet town of Obergurgl is the ideal starting point for (future) sports climbers. While beginners can try their hand at simple, fixed-roped via ferrata routes complete with amazing views of the surrounding landscapes, daredevils can put their skills to the test on more challenging rock climbing routes – from multi-pitch tours to leisurely climbs in a family-friendly climbing park.

The panoramic Schwärzenkamm via ferrata, for example, takes you up to lofty heights and boasts breath-taking views. Meanwhile, the Zirbenwald climbing route in a Swiss pine forest, and the climbing park of the same name, suit families down to the ground.

If that’s not enough, rock climbing enthusiasts will find a number of additional, well-known hotspots and routes throughout the valley. You may even find yourself climbing next to local climbing greats such as Kilian Fischhuber, Jakob Schuster or Anna Stöhr. The local tourism agency also organises climbing camps for children and adults alike.
