A crisp and airy via ferrata in the best rock directly above the village of Sand in Taufers.

Fancy a casual game of poker in the middle of the wall? This is possible on the Pursteinwand via ferrata, where a table is mounted in the middle of the wall. In a small cupboard, which is also mounted on the rock face, playing cards are ready and waiting. This curiosity is not the only highlight of the tour. After the short approach and the first, rather overgrown part of the climb to warm up, it is very exposed in the upper part with racy passages in the best rock. The route is freshly sanitised and perfectly secured. On the way down, you can visit Taufers Castle, one of the best-preserved and best-equipped castles in South Tyrol.
