An alpine via ferrata route on the steep west ridge of the Vorderer Tajakopf (2450 m), which delights climbing fans and nature lovers on both sides with challenging passages and fantastic views of the Zugspitze massif.

The Tajakante via ferrata is a very demanding tour for ambitious via ferrata climbers in a unique landscape. The route leads along the ridge, mostly airy and requires great technical skills and, above all, a lot of stamina. The climb, which is split into two parts by a light walking area – on which you can take a relaxed rest before the final ascent – is characterised by a varied route with sweat-inducing climbs and relaxed flat sections. This means that you always have the opportunity to marvel at the dream panorama of the Zugspitze massif during the ascent. The Tajakante via ferrata can also be climbed in combination with the Seeben via ferrata by those who are strong enough to endure it. More than 5 hours on the rope and pure via ferrata fun await you! On the Rückweg, you pass the Drachensee and the Coburger Hütte, which invites you to take a well-deserved break after strenuous climbing.

Absolutely epic. HOWEVER - this is a 9-10 hour round trip including approach. Don’t let the app trick you into thinking 4-5 hours. That is impossible. The Klettersteig is absolutely beautiful, quite exposed and some tough sections. Awesome. If you can handle the cold then don’t miss out a swim in one of the lakes on the way down
