The sun is shining and is slowly climbing over the peaks in the Allgäu mountains. There is still light fog on the fields in the valley. Perfect weather for exploring the Allgäu mountains on your own on a via ferrata. To make the day perfect, all you need is via ferrata equipment. Because not everyone has their own set ready to hand.

We provide you with the right equipment from Edelrid. A comfortable helmet, a universal climbing harness and an easy-to-use via ferrata set.

A limited number of helmets and climbing harnesses are also available for children.

The Allgäu, more precisely the Oberallgäu with the Allgäu Alps, offers the best conditions for sporty via ferrata and scenic “iron paths”, which would be the direct translation of Via Ferrata. 150 years ago, ladders, steps and similar parts, some of which were still made of wood, were used to develop and secure paths between mountain villages and the Alps.

In South Tyrol in particular and in what is now Slovenia, every summit between the parties Austria-Hungary and Italy was fought for during the world wars. Many mountain roads were provided with iron parts, ladders and steel fuses to ensure replenishment and easier, safe access. Some of these paths have now become great sport climbing routes and keep their history as Via Ferrata.
