General information

Test your climbing skills in Ladis! The rocks of crystalline slate, on which the Laudeck castle sits triumphantly, provide perfect conditions for adventurous days “on the rocks.” The via ferratas “Quarzit Wand Burg Laudeck" offer three short but exciting routes for all fans of the climbing sport: „Via Claudia Augusta“ (blue), „Pons Laudes Steig“(red) und „Laudecksteig“(black). The routes range in difficulty from A to D. All routes end directly next to Gasthof Rauth-Hof. It is a perfect place to stop for a bite to eat or a drink and enjoy the stunning view after the ascent. Breath-taking views of the Inntal valley await all climbers. Furthermore, the view of the mountains on the opposite side of the valley, including the Berneck castle, and the Kaunertal valley is a thrilling sight for any climber.

Climbing routes

Via Claudia Augusta (blue)

Various climbing elements such as wooden blanks, a climbing net and a shaky bridge directly at the rock wall turn the Via Claudia via ferrata into an interesting climbing experience. Its centrepiece is for sure the wooden bridge. It takes you a little will power to cross it. However, you will be rewarded with beautiful views of the Upper Inntal valley in Tyrol.

Even if the Via Claudia Augusta is the easiest one of the three routes, it is not quite that easy. A good head for heights is required for all routes. The via ferrata is ideal for all sporty families with older kids and climbing experience. Is this your first via ferrata? We recommend taking part in guided tours of our alpine schools.

Level of difficulty: A to B.

Pons Laudes Steig (red)

The second moderately difficult via ferrata is called Laudes Steig. It runs parallel to the first route and is a little trickier. You need a good level of fitness to master two steep sections (level of difficulty: C). In addition, it provides fewer climbing aids to step/hold onto. However, every climber is rewarded with stunning views of the Upper Inntal valley.

Level of difficulty: A to C.

Laudecksteig (black)

You need agility and muscle power already on the first few metres of this difficult via ferrata, which is the crux of this route.  After this section, climbers are again rewarded with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains. Just before getting to the final section, where climbers have to make it across a shaky rope bridge, the route features an overhanging rock.

Level of difficulty: C to D.

Please note that the via ferratas in Ladis are only open from mid-May to the end of October.
16 May 2024: The via ferratas in Ladis are now open.
