Via ferrata Fürenwand

The master examination in Engelberg

The via ferrata over the Fürenhochflue is one of the best classic via ferrata routes in Switzerland. Constantly exposed to the heights, the route climbs up to Fürenalp via iron steps and pins, overhanging ladders and continuous crosswalks.

During a fine lunch on the sun terrace the lost nerves can be collected again.
