Climbing, via ferrata & bouldering in Tyrol

Adrenaline rush in nature and indoors

A vacation in Matrei am Brenner, in the heart of the Tyrolean Wipptal valley near Innsbruck, promises climbing enthusiasts a unique experience. Here you will find a perfect mix of natural via ferratas, climbing gardens, bouldering crags and multi-pitch routes in the untouched mountain landscape, as well as excellent indoor options for days when the weather doesn’t play ball.

The basecamp, a central climbing and competence center in Matrei, offers ideal conditions for indoor climbing and bouldering as well as training and wellness. It is the perfect place to improve your climbing skills regardless of the weather.

Climbing for families and beginners through to professionals

The climbing facilities in the Wipptal vacation region are particularly family-friendly and suitable for beginners. Thanks to child-friendly hook spacing and moderate rock slopes, even amateur climbers and children can safely gain their first climbing experience here. One highlight is the Alpine Safety Area (ASA) in Gschnitz, where you can test your skills on via ferratas of various difficulty levels (A to E).
