Climbing & climbing routes
For all levels of climbers, Vorarlberg offers a wide spectrum of routes and tours in a breathtaking landscape. Thanks to the geological diversity in the smallest area (unique in Europe), one can climb in sandstone, limestone, conglomerate, granite and gneissic rock.
Sport climbing on countryside has tradition. Well-known pioneers such as Beat Kammerlander and Peter Schäffler have left their mark. There are grand climbing regions such as Zimba and Drusenfluh in Rätikon, Rote Wand (red wall) and Roggelskopf in Lechquell mountains or super-steep walls of the Bürser gorge.
