From the Harschbichl mountain station (1604m) you hike for around 20 minutes to the Kitzbüheler Horn, up to the entrance for the practice via ferrata route. After a circuit that is more than 100 m in length (1 ‘C’ section) you are at the entrance again and continue hiking to the summit path. After another quarter of an hour a big challenge presents itself - storming the summit of the Kitzbüheler Horn! The access point is close to the Ludwig Scheibersteig. On a length of some 350m and with some 150 metres altitude, after the access area, the route proceeds along the ridge towards the summit. On several sections the via ferrata reaches difficulty level C. When you get to the top you will be rewarded with impressive views to the Großglockner!
