Climbing gardens

The rock faces of various levels of difficulty in Tyrolean climbing gardens make sports climbers leap for joy.

There is nothing better than climbing under the open sky, enjoying the great surroundings when you reach the top... that's at least what enthusiastic sports climbers think. In fact Tyrol offers numerous possibilities to fully enjoy this sport. There are climbing gardens for beginners and children as well as challenging rock faces which can only be faced by the toughest rock climbers. Most of the climbing gardes can also be easily reached and are perfect places to spend one whole day. No matter if you prefer top-rope climbing or leading, you will never be borded:
