Be Outdoor. Be Free
No sport comes nearer to human needs as outdoor sports: whether you want to keep to a lower pace or are searching for adrenaline - movement in the open air is always good for body and spirit.
A WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES...
Merano 2000 is an ideal place for leisure aktivities in the open air.
Mountain biking, running, climbing, paragliding, horse riding or downhilling... come up and cool down!

- Climbing the via ferrata is undertaken at your own risk
- A full set of equipment (a via ferrata set and helmet) is mandatory
- Because the ascent is southward, it is recommended to set off early and to take sufficient water supplies
- Route length: 1 km
- Altitude: 550 m
- Difficulty level: medium - Levels A-B with sections at B/C
- Time required: 2-4 hours
From Piffinger Köpfl mountain restaurant, follow path No. 3 until you reach a fork in the road, which branches off to the left onto route No. 18, the "Schartlweg" trail, and then continue to the signposted entrance to the via ferrata.
