Ramsauer Klettersteig

Open

This is the classic Via Ferrata in the Dachstein region, and also a perfect warm-up tour for the Dachstein when starting at the Guttenberhaus.

 

For the approach from the Dachstein Mountain station, through the Rosmarie Stollen over the Edelgries Glacier, we recommend crampons in the morning (in hard snow conditions).

 

Usually, the route starts at the Edelgrießhöhe, but you can start at either end. This impressively scenic Via Ferrata crosses summits and rock towers to the Gruberscharte in a breathtaking experience.
