Austria-Via Ferrata Sinabell

Open
The Sinabell was constructed in June 2012, and it is top-secured by metal foothold pegs and bars.

Sinabell's impressive southwest-facing wall can be seen from afar. At the summit, an alpine meadow, filled with flowers and grazing sheep, invites you to take a break with wonderful views across mountaintops from the Enns Valley and the Schladminger Tauern to the high-alpine terrain of 'Am Stein'.

More information

Arriving from the west:
From the west you can take the Munich-Salzburg motorway, continuing on the Tauern motorway (A 10) until the Ennstal junction. From here take the Ennstal A-road (the B 320) for around 30 km into the Schladming-Dachstein region, then take the Ramsau am Dachstein turn-off.

Arriving from the north:
From the south-east take the Pyhrnautobahn motorway (A 9) to the Liezen junction and then the Ennstal A-road (B 320) into the Schladming-Dachstein region. Then take the Ramsau am Dachstein turn-off.

Sinabell‘s south face rises east of the Guttenberghaus. Follow the path winding up to the Feistererscharte. When you are beneath the rockfall of the Sinabell, turn right to the entry-point.

Descent: From the summit, hike down the back of the mountain across the meadow to the Feistererscharte.The path is marked with stone cairns and red dots. Follow it back to the Guttenberghaus.

Please note: the approach to the Guttenberghaus (Austrian Alpine Club hut) from the car park at the Feistererhof takes 2 to 3 hours (1000 m hd). For the alternative descent via the Silberkar Canyon, there is a maintenance fee to pay.
