A wonderful fixed rope route in the Tannheim "Dolomites". Enjoy a breathtaking view of the Tannheimer Tal. From the Füssner Jöchle via the Schartschrofen into the via ferrata. During the climbing tour itself you don't notice much of the outside world - but during the breaks, when you need to catch your breath, the view over the panorama of the Alps is a real gift. At the top, it is hard to describe the feeling with which the climber enjoys his own performance and the world of the mountains.

From the mountain station Füssener Jöchle in the direction of Raintaler Joch, past the Läuferspitze to the Schartschrofen. This part of the hike is still relatively easy. On the Schartschrofen, the fixed rope route begins with a steeper descent. It continues over the Gelbe Scharte and over the Rote Flüh. The via ferrata is very easy to walk on with ropes, iron hooks in the rock as a step aid and artificially created steps. For the descent into the valley we choose the path via the Tannheimer Hütte to the Gimpelhaus. The path now leads partly in serpentines downhill. The bus, which stops in the middle of Nesselwängle, takes you back to Grän to the valley station Füssener Jöchle Bergbahn.

This tour is also very well suited as a round trip.

Safety guidelines:

It should be noted that mountaineering may involve an increased risk of accidents and injuries. Despite careful route planning, a basic risk always remains. Tour preparation through endurance sports, appropriate technical training and further education as well as personal prudence reduces the risk of accidents and injuries.

But please never forget that the weather in the mountains can change very quickly.

Stay on the marked hiking trails.


Complete via ferrata equipment (via ferrata set, harness and helmet) also recommended for experienced climbers!

The personal mountaineering equipment must be safe and serviceable and meet the respective technical standards. Every hiker is recommended to obtain information about the planned tours from alpine specialist literature or on site.
