Calling all those who only live once: Get high on elevation!

We know what you’re thinking: All those beaming faces. Check out that guy over there with his broad grin. Everybody just seems happier here. You stick your nose high up in the air and all you can smell is fresh Ötztal mountain air. Then you look upward and it clicks.

There are tree trunks dangling in the air, connected to one another and to gigantic bridge pillars solely by ropes. You watch people climbing the trunks when, suddenly, your viewing is interrupted by a shadow of a person zooming by at high speed. “What the f…,” you wonder. Let us explain, before you think you’ve gone crazy: You have landed in the Climbing AREA. Here, we get high on endorphins.

Here, we have reinvented climbing in the Ötztal, Tyrol at giddy heights of up to 27 metres, with the highest artificial climbing tower in Austria, a dizzying high ropes course , as well as a spine-tingling Mega Swing and Flying Fox adventure. Not to forget the Bungy Jump we offer for the craziest of you adrenalinfreaks. We have created the perfect setting for you to climb high in the Ötztal. Fight your vertigo and get your adrenaline pumping on the Längenfeld Via Ferrata, in our Boulder Cave, or at our excellent deep water soloing wall.

Enjoy the ultimate combination of climbing in our Climbing AREA in the Ötztal and a refreshing dip in our own lake.

Any questions?

We recommend you to book your climbing tour in time. Especially the weekends and the summer days in July and August are very popular and booked up quickly. The earlier you book, the better. If you only want to go to the climbing tower, you don't need to book in advance and can easily get a ticket at the Water AREA ticket office.

In the case of a cancellation at short notice, we must adhere to our terms and conditions and therefore also charge cancellation fees. If there are still enough starting places available, an additional booking is quite feasible.

No, of course not. There is a separate access path on the other side of the bridge. However, all participants have to cross a narrow, free-floating footbridge to get onto the platform.

There are different age restrictions per activity. Here you can find an overview of the age restrictions for each activity. The minimum age is a legal regulation that we must comply with. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions here.

Better not! Personal belongings usually just fall out of the pockets and get broken. Just stow it in our lockers in the Climbing Base or the Outdoor Base. Important medicines can of course be taken along. Please inform your guide about this.
