The happiness of the earth is occasionally on the walls of the mountains. Outstanding climbing routes in Salzburg and the surrounding region inspire young and old. Cliffs, rock faces, climbing and bouldering halls present all kinds of challenges for every taste and all climbing levels. You can find out where the best climbs are here.

Before it begins

Breathtakingly beautiful rock walls beckon with so many small and large challenges. However, before you tackle the climbing routes in Salzburg, you should complete a basic course and familiarize yourself with this sport. The Salzburg Alpine Club ( www.alpenverein-salzburg.at ) offers courses for beginners and advanced learners on different terrains. In the Hallein bouldering hall ( www.boulderhallein.com ) familiarize yourself with the indoor version. It’s even easier with the right equipment. The following should always be in your luggage:
