Seasons: Mid-June to mid-September, but probably best avoided when snowy high up unless you are appropriately equipped and experienced. Centres: Innsbruck, Garmisch and Füssen in the western part, Kufstein, Salzburg and Berchtesgaden in the east. Difficulty: Treat as mountaineering, sometimes climbing. Klettersteig are broadly equivalent to via ferrata, so you need mountain experience, a good head for heights and the right equipment. A great experience if you have all these. Must See:Amazing routes on big mountains where most climbers wouldn’t go. Dachstein routes and the Zugspitze.
Even before the turn of the century, when the opening up of the Eastern Alps to tourists was completed and the number of mountaineers increased by leaps and bounds, a start was made on reducing the difficulty of specific hard sections of popular climbs by means of wire ropes and iron rungs.


The climbing aids which have been fixed with great effort and skill on difficult, sometimes vertical, and even overhanging rock enable even non-climbers to do routes which formerly were Grades III, IV and V. However two conditions must be fulfilled without qualification: absolute freedom from dizziness, and a certain degree of mountain experience, including not only sure-footedness but also an awareness of alpine dangers.

Protected climbing paths similar to Via Ferrata. The Northern Limestone Alps run along the Austrian-German border from the Allgäu Alps in the west to Salzburg in the east. Covers routes in the Bavarian pre-Alps, Allgäu Alps, Lechtal Alps, Wetterstein, Karwendel, Rofan, Kaisergebirge, Berchtesgaden Alps, Dachstein and Salzkammergut.
