Climbing through the birthplace of this breath-taking sport

Mountaineering & climbing in the Dachstein mountains

Steep mountainsides, stunning cliffs and a unique panorama - the Dachstein mountain range is a true paradise for lovers of this addictive alpine sport. It's for a great reason that climbing in the Ramsau region is one of the most popular leisure time activities among our guests, and the word has spread about the fascination of mountaineering around our peaks.


In the most beautiful climbing area of Austria, you can choose between 18 different via ferratas of all difficulty levels. This enables climbers of all skills to experience climbing and mountaineering in our unique mountain world. The crowning glory of climbing high over Ramsau am Dachstein is the view you have when you reach the top: looking north, you can see until the Czech Republic, looking south, all the way to Slovenia!


Even if you love the challenge of climbing in overhanging rocks, the Dachstein mountains offer you something very special: the longest via ferrata with a vertical drop. There are several reasons why Ramsau am Dachstein is widely known as the birthplace of this fascinating sport - not least of all, mountaineering and climbing have already been possible on especially built via ferratas in the Dachstein mountains for more than 170 years.


Spend your holiday in Ramsau am Dachstein and learn, practise and enjoy climbing with the large variety of offers regarding this unique sport. Discover all our via ferratas and join climbing courses or events exploring the topic of climbing and mountaineering! The alpine sports festival "Via Ferrata" that takes place every year in July is just one - though the biggest - climbing event in the Dachstein mountain range.


There is nowhere else that you could experience climbing and mountaineering in a more beautiful way - it is the height of pleasure in the Dachstein region!
