The skiing and hiking area Merano 2000 is also a paradise for via ferrata lovers. There are several via ferratas and climbing tours in Merano and the surrounding area that are suitable for beginners as well as experienced climbers.
The via ferrata "Heini Holzer", built in 2016, is completely secured with steel ropes and equipped with steps. The 550-metre climb has medium difficulty levels (A - B - B/C). Certified mountain guides are happy to accompany you on this enduring climbing tour. A via ferrata set, helmet and experience are absolutely necessary. Access is via the Ifinger Schartlweg no. 18, which branches off from trail no. 3 shortly after the Merano 2000 mountain station.
Safety instructions: For the ascent of the “Ifinger” and the via ferrata, an early start and a good overall condition are required. There is no water and no escape routes along the ascent, so bring sufficient provisions. The use of complete and standard equipment (climbing harness, via ferrata set and helmet - possibly rental at Rent & Go at Merano 2000) and experience are required. Do not enter in wet or unsafe weather conditions.
