Via Ferrata Klettersteig
Walking along a steep rock face secured by a rope – this is undeniably the latest ultimate adrenalin kick!
The via ferrata here is exceptional because it leads down from Mürren to Gimmelwald. The spectacular views of the 4000m Bernese Alps are of course included!
The new via ferrata starts high above the Lauterbrunnen Valley in the lovely village of Mürren (1640m) and from there it leads steeply downwards. As a rule via ferratas lead upwards but in contrast, the way leads from Mürren almost directly down in the direction of Gimmelwald. The via ferrata usually takes about three hours and covers 2.2km with a difference in altitude of 400m. The words “via ferrata” come from the Italian language and mean way of iron or iron way and signify a sort of intermediate stage between normal mountain walking and free.
