We will spend one day in our climbing area in Fragsburg or Partschins. You will learn climbing techniques on rock, get familiar with knots and we practice to abseiling over an overhang as well as belay techniques. This course is offered throughout the summer season with no previous experience required.
Family rock climbing is a great way to experience the adventure of rock climbing, under the close supervision of a certified mountain guide. This program is for families with kids age 14 and younger who are looking to learn a new sport or just get outside for the day to try something new. The small, but noble climbing garden called 'Burgstollknott' in Partschins is suitable for beginners.
Just below the skywalk you find the training- and family via ferrata “KNOTT”. The access and the descent are short, so the via ferrata is easy to reach. The via ferrata "KNOTT" has one short connector route, a 20 m long suspended bridge, two steep ladders and four routes. The four routes "Sally", "Turtle", "Affele" and "Rocky" show simple routes, difficult passages, exposed tracks and technical sections.
Merano and its surroundings offer a wide range of different destinations that are perfect for a Via Ferrata tours. All this enhanced by a gentle Mediterranean climate and untouched natural sceneries wherever you look.

The world famous Vie Ferrate (“iron ways”) of the Dolomites are well protected itineraries with wire cables for safety, iron rods and steps fixed to the rock allowing non-climbers an easier approach to the mountains. To make this fascinating “game” even safer, you will need simple mountaineering equipment such as a harness, helmet, some rope and a few karabiners. Your guide will teach you how to use the equipment and give you hints on climbing techniques; each day we will discover an exciting new route in complete security. Our Via Ferrata holidays provide an opportunity to learn the ropework skills required for the safe use of this type of route, and also provide guided ascents of some of the most classic routes in the Dolomites such as the Pisciadu, Oskar Schuster, Marmolada and others in the area.
