Via ferratas are neither hiking trails nor sport climbing routes. They are secured throughout with a steel cable and iron pins by indicating the climbing route with artificial handholds and step aids. The single degrees of difficulty from A (not very difficult) to E (extremely difficult) and the length of the routes serve as an important guide when choosing a tour. For climbing via ferratas, you need complete via ferrata equipment without exception, which you can also rent on site in Ötztal. Add stamina, muscle power, skill and courage - and you are ready to go.
