Maybe you know them already: Gspensti and Spuki, the two ghosts, that are up to mischief on the Natural Adventure World Ghosts’ Mountain in St. Johann-Alpendorf. Now there’s a very special adventure for young climbers over 8 years old. Easily accessible on the Alpendorf cable car, accompanied by an adult you can view the world from above on Drachi’s via ferrata for kids.
All those who have no experience of via ferrata are recommended to take part in an introductory course with experts. A good opportunity for this is the JO Xund&Fit programme organised by the Tourist Office in St. Johann with mountain guide Sepp Schiefer. The experienced alpine expert provides useful tips for safe climbing on via ferrata and choosing the right equipment every Thursday. This session can be booked via the Tourist Office website: josalzburg.com.
Before visiting the via ferrata for kids and youths you should take note of the following:Use of the climbing trail is at your own risk – the Alpendorf Lift Company takes no liability! The via ferrata on the Geisterberg can be reached via the Drachenweg (approx. 5 to 10 minutes’ walk from the Buchauhütte).
