Via ferrata Kandersteg-Allmenalp

Climb one of the most beautiful and spectacular via ferratas of Switzerland.

The vertical face directly after the starting point, the four roaring waterfalls of the Allmibach, the two three-rope-bridges or the zip line – the via ferrata won't leave one wish unfulfilled!

Difficulty: KS4+ (1 = easy, 6 = extreme difficult)
Variant "Freude herrscht" = KS5
Time required: 2 to 3 hours
Variation in height: 650 m climb (via ferrata 370 m)
Open: app. end of May until app. end of October

You can rent the via ferrata equipment in the sport shops of Kandersteg or directly at the valley station of the Allmenalpbahn. The rental per day and person is CHF 25.

To restore after the climb, go to the Allmen-Beizli having some own produced Swiss alp cheese, snacks or basic meals and enjoy the panoramic view.

The cable car will bring you back safely to Kandersteg afterwards.

More information at Kandersteg tourist information or the cable car Allmenalp.
