Lets see one of the most beautiful via ferrates in the Alps. Calm surface of blue salt Traunstein lake is beneath you guarded by the Julian Alps. Dachstein bows in the distance, Totes Gebirge and Bohemian Forest are in the distance. This is Traunstein.
Alpine air, mountains, lakes, and the peaks of majestic giants, and Dachstein glacier in the background. Such are the moments you can experience at Katrin ferrate that is at the altitude of 1542 meters.
In case you are looking for a more complex ferrate then visit Drachenwand in the Austrian Alps. To get grandiose look over Mondsee and Dachstein you need to be physically fit, have inner strength and experience. Thanks to this you will enjoy your climb up the Dragon Wall (Drachenwand) and also the view of the Alps.
