Since 2005, Franzensfeste has become a very popular meeting point for climbers. Over the past few years, the climbing crag has been equipped by an independent group of climbing enthusiasts of the CAI who managed to create a crag which is now known throughout the region. Underneath the large central sector with routes of easy and medium difficulty, there is a smaller sector with short, but more difficult routes. Recently, the team has begun to work on a new sector directly above the central sector. It promises long routes, even mutli-pitches, for all preferences. The crag is very suitable for families with small children because of its proximity to the main road. Furthermore, just underneath the wall there is a meadow with tables and benches.
The Franzensfeste climbing park enjoys great popularity among beginners and families. It is easily accessible by bus or railway and a 15 minutes' walk from the fortress Franzensfeste.
