Climbing in the Almenland

Fixed rope route & climbing crag

The municipality of Breitenau am Hochlantsch provides a wide range of options for climbers, from a freely accessible climbing garden in the gorge ditch near Breitenau to the Bärenschütz Gorge, through to the exciting Franz Scheikl fixed-rope climbing route up the Hochlantsch, which is even suitable for sporty children. And, of course, the ice climbing in the winter should not be forgotten.

Courses for beginners and advanced climbers are offered.
