Climbing, Via Ferrata & Bouldering

Vertical to the face in Zillertal

Mountain climbing is and remains an incredibly special experience.


The bizarre rock formations and steep rock faces found in the Zillertal Alps National Park provide pure excitement for climbing enthusiasts. Alpinists equipped with rope, pickaxe and crampons will find perfect summit tours.


Among other things the visitor will find here are the "Ewigen Jagdgründe" (Eternal Hunting Grounds), with two approx. 60 m-high granite rocks that jut out of the ground close to the Gasthof Breitlahner in Zemmgrund. These climbing grounds, with a difficulty of 4-10, are very safe and amongst the finest to be found in Europe. Some of the best longer routes for sports climbers are also located around Ginzling, where some of the largest bouldering areas are tucked away.


Two climbing areas graded 4 - 8 can be found on Mount Penken as well as a via Ferrata route where beginners can get a taste of the climbing spirit. Equipment can be borrowed free of charge from the funsport station next to the Penken Kombibahn.
