The climbing garden Wissberg lies in the midst of the magnificent mountain scenery of Schlossberg, Spannort and Titlis. Not only the vertical movement makes the heart beat faster, but also the unique mountain panorama. A climbing garden for beginners but also for experts.

The entrance to the climbing garden takes place after approx. one hour hiking time from the mountain station Fürenalp at 2200 meters above sea level. Optimal even on mild winter days! With over 46 routes in the difficulty levels 3c to 7a the climbing area Wissberg offers a lot of variety. The rock is rough, handy and of maximum quality. Some of the routes offer tricky climbing on beautiful limestone structures and over slabs. The area Wissberg - Fürenalp is registered in the book outdoor Guide Engelberg or in the climbing guide Plaisir Ost.

Author’s recommendation

Pure relaxation awaits you in the Fürenalp mountain restaurant. Let us spoil you. The overnight stay on Fürenalp is also a special experience. Extend your climbing day and overnight stay to 1850 m above sea level in the mountain room or in the alpine hut.
