"Mooser-Mandl", "Drossen-Hex" and "Limberg-Zwerg"
Three anchored climbing routes, or "vie ferrate", with different levels of difficulty were established in the rock of the historic Höhenburg peak. In fact, the well-kept iron ladder from the former high alpine school was even integrated into the route known as "Limberg-Zwerg". Here, in this simple via ferrata, the key route named "Zwergenleiter", with a level C degree of difficulty, is waiting to be conquered.
All three vie ferrate have their destination at Höhenburg peak, which towers between the Drossen and the Moosersperre dams. The camera should not be missing from the equipment of every climber, because the vie ferrate in the high alpine environment with the high altitude reservoirs in the background are a unique setting for both athletes and leisure seekers. The downhill climb is across the pleasant Höhenburg hiking trail.
Rock climbing arena at the summit
For those for whom the via ferrata was too little of a physical exertion, there is the rock climbing arena at Höhenburg peak. Optimally secured routes are waiting here to be conquered.
