Climbing in Tirol

Obstacles are there to be overcome - and that is exactly what climbing is all about. Tirol offers a huge range of vertical challenges for all ages and abilities, from family-friendly climbing areas to tricky boulder problems.

There is no sport that lets you "feel" the mountain like rock climbing. In Tirol, the region in Austria with the most mountains over 3,000 metres, visitors will find more than 3,000 sport climbing routes in  stunning natural settings and 8 bouldering centres. Rock climbing has experienced a boom in recent years, leading to the creation of new routes catering for all ages, abilities and tastes. While during the winter months there is excellent ice climbing on the region's frozen waterfalls, the summer months invite families with children to explore some of the many easy climbing routes throughout Tirol. Boulderers will find plenty of tricky problems outdoors and also in the region's indoor climbing centres. There are even a number of quality-approved climbing hotels which specialise in catering for climbing enthusiasts.
