Multi pitch climbing in the Imst holiday region

The Imst holiday region in the Tirolean Oberland is known for its numerous outdoor opportunities for climbing, mountain biking, hiking, rafting and canyoning. It particularly offers many unique climbing possibilities. It is one of Austria’s top climbing spots, providing more than 3.000 sport climbing routes in all difficulties for climbers of all levels - beginners, hobby climbers and pros. The crags are in great condition as they have been well maintained and further developed over the past few years. Austria’s highest climbing wall is also located in Imst.

If you don’t walk to hike down the mountain into the valley, the Alpine Coaster roller coaster takes you back to the base of the mountain in high speed. This is for sure a memorable experience!
