Climbing and bouldering in the Attersee-Attergau region

The holiday region has a lot to offer. A brand new indoor climbing and bouldering hall in the Freizi in St. Georgen im Attergau, the Steinbach-Forstamt bouldering area, the Attersee high ropes course and the outdoor climbing tower in Unterach.

For experienced climbers, the Höllengebirge offers a wide variety of climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty and the very challenging Attersee via ferrata Mahdlgupf - one of the many via ferrata routes in the Salzkammergut. The canyoning in the Gimbach Cascades is a real adventure. Certified and local climbing and mountain guides accompany you on numerous activities.

Overcoming, trust and team spirit are required in the High Kix high ropes course: Together as a team, you are guided by trained trainers and can rely entirely on the safety and sense of responsibility of your partners. You learn to recognise your own limits and to use the skills of your colleagues. In the community you will achieve more than you expect.


Climbing in the Höllengebirge

The Höllengebirge offers various climbing routes with different degrees of difficulty. In addition to the Adlerspitze and the Attersee Klettersteig Mahdlgupf, the bouldering area Attersee Forstamt and the mountaineering village Steinbach invite you to climb. 

The views of the crystal-clear waters of Lake Attersee, where you can cool off after a strenuous tour, combined with the rugged limestone outcrops and rock formations make a tour in the Höllengebirge a special experience.

Die Adlerspitze – das älteste und bekannteste Klettergebiet des Höllengebirges.

The climbing tour (normal route) on the Adlerspitze (1,241 m) leads in 3 extremely airy pitches to the pointed rock tower in the Höllengebirge. Once at the summit, a beautiful panorama opens up over the Attersee and the entire Salzkammergut.

Attersee via ferrata

The Attersee via ferrata leads to the 1261m high Mahdlgupf in Steinbach am Attersee. Stamina and endurance are a must on this tour - as the middle section in particular is steep and in part exposed. For this reason, the entrance was rebuilt in 2020 and now features a D/E passage. The via ferrata is closed from 1 Nov. to 31 March.
