Via ferratas at Dachstein region – difficult and beautiful

Since I did my first via ferrata two years ago – at Hohe Wand, I knew that I have to visit the region of Dachstein. This is where you can find several via ferratas graded D, and even E, where I wanted to challenge myself. This year I had an opportunity.

Via ferratas in Silberkar gorge

Silberkar gorge in the Dachstein massif can be a great idea for a family day out but you can connect it also with via ferratas. In the gorge and above the Silberkar Hut there are three short but interesting via ferratas.

Via ferrata trails in Lienz Dolomites

After few days in Brenta, we relocated to Lienz Dolomites to try more difficult via ferratas. I was satisfied! The views aren’t so amazing as in Brenta but still wonderful and via ferratas were really challenging for me, especially the last one ;)

The best via ferrata I climbed during my journey in Austria in June. It was a challenge for me, but I didn’t have to struggle to do it. It also offers great views and is pretty long.

Schneeberg – the highest mountain range of Lower Austria

You won’t find high mountains in Lower Austria. The highest peak – Hochschneeberg (Klosterwappen) is only 2076 m high but it doesn’t mean it’s not worth to visit. I had beautiful weather and views were so lovely, that today I had serious problem with choosing which photos to show you :)

Via ferratas in Hohe Wand

Hohe Wand is a mountain ridge close to Vienna. It’s low (the peaks are ca. 1000 m), you can quickly get there from Poland and there are via ferratas in all degrees of difficulty. That’s why I chose this place to try my first ferratas.
