The via ferrata is convincing with its high alpine ambience and a fantastic panoramic view of the glaciated Sustenhorn and Gwächtenhorn when you reach the Tierliberghütte. The via ferrata is accessible from the end of June to the beginning of October - and we can do it either as a day tour or with an overnight stay in the Tierberglihütte.

Equipment

Compulsory equipment: climbing harness, via ferrata set, climbing helmet, latching sling (webbing sling and screw carabiner), climbing rucksack and sturdy shoes.

Optional equipment: via ferrata gloves.

Safety Guidelines

For the via ferrata we need good physical condition, surefootedness and a head for heights, appropriate equipment and knowledge of how to behave on the mountain. If you are inexperienced, it is advisable to do the via ferrata with a mountain guide. We only go to the wall in good weather - and leave immediately if the weather changes or there is a risk of thunderstorms. A carabiner always remains on the safety rope.

The ascent is at your own risk. Jungfrau Region Tourism declines all liability.

Getting There

Public transport

Thanks to its central location in Europe, Switzerland is served by international trains from over 12 countries. Within Switzerland, we take Intercity trains from Basel and Lucerne directly to Interlaken. Coming from Zurich, we have to change trains in Bern. The trains run every half hour. In Interlaken Ost we take the train to Meiringen, from where we take the post bus to the Steingletscher in about an hour. The last stretch to the entrance is on foot.

Getting there

From Basel and Geneva we travel via Bern to Interlaken and on to Meiringen. From Zurich, the fastest route is via Lucerne and the Brünig Pass to Meiringen - and then on towards the Susten Pass to the Steingletscher. From here, a toll road leads us to the Umpol car park. Coming from the south, we reach our destination via the Grimsel or Susten Pass (only in summer) or the Simplon Pass (with subsequent car transport through the Lötschberg Tunnel).

Parking

At the Umpol car park.
