Hang tough: climbing in Bavaria

Whether a climbing gym, outdoor climbing or a climbing forest in Bavaria, here are the best trips if you're setting your sights high.

Franconian Switzerland – an El Dorado for climbers

Franconian Switzerland is a paradise for climbing enthusiasts and adventure seekers. The countless rock faces have routes for beginners, advanced levels, and experts.

To destination

If you enjoy adventures at heights, you should make sure to head to the Alps. In the northern part of Bavaria there are many climbing rocks of every difficulty level. Weißenstein, Hainbronner Pfeiler, Buchenstein and Hartenfels can all be easily reached from the station. The Bergsportschule Bamberg mountaineering school offers climbing courses in Franconian Switzerland, which is one of the most beautiful and largest climbing areas in the world.

Monkey Cage – bouldering wall in Aschaffenburg

Bouldering, yoga, beer garden: at this indoor climbing wall, the fun continues from dawn till dusk.

Climbers of all ages are certain to find a challenge at Monkey Cage in Aschaffenburg, as it has climbing routes to suit all levels.

To destination

The Monkey Cage climbing gym is a place where climbing enthusiasts of all levels and age groups can climb to their heart’s content on 950 square metres of boulder surface and 85 square metres of boulder surface for children. There is also a sauna, a beer garden, the Monkey Bar, yoga courses and slack lines. You can easily spend an entire day here.

Ice climbing in Oberstdorf

A wintry challenge for climbing enthusiasts

Anyone can hack their way along frozen waterfalls and abseil down icicles when they have the right instructor. And it's great fun, too!

To destination

Abseiling from icicles, climbing along frozen water falls, and feeling the rush of adrenaline: you can do all of these things in Oberstdorf im Allgäu. The Bergschule Oberstdorf mountain school offers two-day ice-climbing courses for example, under the supervision of experienced mountain guides.

Bouldering wall E4 in Nuremberg

Indoor climbing wall in the Franconian metropolis

Fancy dangling off a wall? With an area of 2,000 square metres, E4 in Nuremberg is one of the largest bouldering walls in Europe, and a place where you can push your limits in a safe and fun way.

To destination

One of the largest bouldering centres in Europe is located in Nuremberg. E4 features 2,000 square metres of climbing surface – almost an endless number of routes of up to 4.5 metres in height. Every Thursday, one section of the climbing area is rearranged, meaning it never gets boring, even for experienced climbers. Climbing newbies can take part in free induction courses in the climbing hall each Thursday.

Possibly the most spectacular climbing forest in Bavaria: if you find bouldering and climbing too daring, test out your head for heights in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. 13 obstacle courses are only a half hour’s walk away from Garmisch-Partenkirchen station. They feature a total of 123 climbing elements, of which are 15 zip lines between 25 and 90 metres long. You can use the flying fox by the Olympiaschanze ski jump if you pay extra. The view of the small town, the ski jump and the alpine scenery are magnificent when you glide down into the valley at up to 70 km/h.
