Join us on a fantastic cliff face traverse above the Rhein!



Rhein River Climbing Path

Description: On this klettersteig (German for "climbing way") we travel along fixed steel cables and ladder rungs.

Bring lunch and euro for potential apres-hike dining along the Rhein! Dress for the weather and bring at least one liter of water in a small day pack. Great opportunities for photos guaranteed!
