As a special challenge lures the historic via ferrata Pinut, which also allows inexperienced but sure-footed and vertigo-free climbers the climb to the Flimserstein plateau. Thrill without risk, and a fantastic view of the mountains of Flims.

The historic Via Ferrata Pinut is a fascinating nature experience for the whole family. From Fidaz the via ferrata leads over the Pinut on the Flimserstein. With the necessary respect and the right safety measures, the Via Ferrata Pinut offers thrills without risk. Surefootedness and a sense of heights should, however, be provided in order to be able to fully enjoy the oldest via ferrata in Switzerland - opened in 1907 and renovated in 2007.

Author’s recommendation

Take some coins with you, upstairs you can eat in a self-catering hut with sausage, cheese and bread, drinks. Money must be put in the cash register accordingly.

Question from Jazmine M · April 20, 2021 · Community
Hallo! Auf Ihrer Website steht nicht, ab wann die Saison beginnt. Bei gutem Wetter ist es ab 1. Mai geöffnet? Danke

Hallo Jazmine, wann der Pinut öffnet ist schwer abzuschätzen und hängt vom restlichen Schnee ab. Die Gemeinde informiert uns sobald der Pinut aufgeht. Wir ändern dann den Status im Outdooractive. Hier kannst du auch gelegentlich nachsehen: http://www.pinut.ch/

Wirklich toller Klettersteig mit einer sehr schönen Aussicht. Der Klettersteig selbst ist sehr leicht. Die Wanderpassagen dazwischen jedoch ziemlich kraftraubend.

Ein klasse Steig mit tollen Aussichten und tiefblicken. Allerdings finde ich die Zeitangabe mit 2 Stunden etwas knapp für den Steig.
