Via Ferrata for kids

Hello families! Via ferratas is not an adults only fun exercise. This via ferrata for young climbing pros is a magical Pirate Ferrata for future climbers both big and small. Get your gear and give it a try. We promise pure climbing pleasure. This route through a pirate’s world on the rocks is as exciting as the climbing itself. Swing yourself right into the ferrata via a climbing net. Slip past trees, discover a real ship's wheel, climb uphill over pirate sabres. You bet there might be a real life pirate waiting for you. All hikers across the Speikboden area get notified that another little pirate has managed the big climb on the children's via ferrata, when hearing the ship bell ring. Kids from 6 years of age and their accompanying adults will have the greatest fun at Pirate’s Rock just a short walk from the Speikboden cable car exit.
