Nasenwand via Ferrata at the National park

Ginzling has yet another climbing attraction

The shortest access route up to the new Nasenwand Via Ferrata begins in the centre of the village, just a few metres from the National Park Centre at the Gasthaus Neue Post.

The starting point at 1,050 m is just a couple of minutes walk along the existing footpath to Ginzling’s own mountain, the Drisnter. From there, there's an ascent of approx. 400 m and a climb of 500 m as far as the historically interesting Floitenschlag to the finish at 1,450 m.


The climbing route with safety cables and footholds has a degree of difficulty corresponding to category "C-E" in the middle to upper range. In particular, its length and the level of exposure make it a really demanding "Via Ferrata".


The steep track goes through thin mountain forest and across outcrops of rock; and climbers have an impressive view over the mountaineering village during the entire course of the climb, which compensates for all the effort needed.

A few facts on the via Ferrate

  • 180m long - 45 minutes
  • 50m altitude difference
  • Grade of difficulty: B/C (medium)
  • Use of the via Ferrata and equipment at your own risk!

The "Via Ferrata for everyone" offers even novices the opportunity to get a taste of climbing in the mountains


The climb: A vertical ladder forms the start of the route, followed by an elevated traverse, with occasional steeper sections, up to the summit. You follow the taut steel rope at all times and need to have a good head for heights for the start.


At the summit, you take the path to the west and continue along the route to the finish. Those who find the official start too difficult can join the route at the point of its moderate descent.


Climbing sets can be hired free of charge from the summit station of the Penken Kombibahn by leaving an identity card/passport or driving license as a deposit.

Pfeilspitzwand via Ferrata

A few facts on the via Ferrata

  • Target group: Advanced
  • Grade of difficulty: B/C+
  • Duration: 2 hours
  • Atiltude difference: 250 m
  • Cable length: 480 m

The new Pfeilspitzwand via Ferrata was officially opened in June 2011.


The access point to the Pfeilspitzwand via Ferrata can be found around 100 metres down-valley from the supply lift for Gasthaus Zimmereben on the existing trail leading to Schwendau. An easily passable, but exposed rock passage marks the beginning of this new via Ferrata. This is the longest of the three via Ferrate that lead to Gasthaus Zimmereben, with around 700 metres of climbing and 300 metres in altitude difference.


Several very beautiful passages and easily negotiable vertical sections of rock face, as well as fantastic views over Mayrhofen and the neighbouring Zimmereben via Ferrate are some of the special features that characterize this particular via Ferrata.


The grade of difficulty ranges from sections that can be simply walked, to short D- sections, but mainly comprises of between grades B and C. The Pfeilspitzwand via Ferrata is more or less halfway between the levels of difficulty of the existing via Verrate, and therefore a great addition to the resort. From the exit, a new hiking trail leads downhill to Gasthaus Zimmereben in around 5 minutes.
