The Allmenalp Via Ferrata is one of the best in the region. Climb iron pegs, wire bridges and traverse above the spectacular Allmenalp waterfall.
The Via ferrata is closed for winter! See you in spring 2024
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!

New variant «Freude herrscht»
The new variant "Freude herrscht" is classified as KS5 in the SAC via ferrata scale. This means that this variant is very difficult to climb and is therefore only suitable for experienced climbers free from giddiness.
