The Siega via ferrata, passing through the Karwand rock wall, was opened at the end of July 2008.
Over two weeks of construction, 260 metres of steel cable and numerous pegs were mounted. No modern elements, such as rope bridges, were added to this classic sports Via Ferrata. The route is named after Siegmund, the owner of the Stangalm.

Safety information

Hiking Via Ferrata routes is a demanding sport in rugged terrain. For your safety, please observe the following rules: 

  • Via Ferrata routes are demanding and require a good level of fitness, no hight vertigo and sure-footedness. 
  • Always use a helmet and, a Via Ferrata kit to attach yourself to the safety rope. Many mountain rescue missions are a result of carelessness and bad weather conditions. 
  • Many routes require most of the day. When planning a tour, always include the possibility of a sudden change of weather. Be prepared: carry spare clothing and a good stock of food supplies. 
  • Always show respect towards fellow mountaineers. Inform them about possible dangers if need be. 
  • Take care of our environment. Only take photographs and memories with you - leave no trace.
