Arrive in the parking lot for the Via Ferrata at Gasthof Drachenwand. Meet your certified and experienced guide who will hand out the necessary equipment if required.

After climbing a total of 560 meters, reach the summit and enjoy a fantastic view of the lakes and the surrounding peaks of the Dachstein massif. Enjoy a short break, then start the descent over Hirschteig. Here, see the Drachenloch, another highlight of the tour, and admire the sight of the deep blue Mondsee. After about 4 hours, arrive back at the starting point at the Gasthof Drachenwand.
