Persailhorn is a 2.347m high mountain in ‘Steinernes Meer’, Berchtesgadener Alps in Salzburg. From the city of Saalfelden Persailhorn is easy to recognize because of its special shape. There are two Via Ferratas to reach the summit and an old route which is not frequently used anymore. The two Via Ferratas are a nice tour around Persailhorn. From the summit you can go on at the Saalfeldener Höhenweg to Riemannhaus (hut) at 2.177m and to the summit of Schönfeldspitze, 2.653m (unsecured path, II.)

From the parking at 820m (Buchbichlgut, north of Saalfelden) you take way Nr. 412 to Peter-Wiechenthaler hut at 1.707m and on to the entries of the Via Ferratas. For the Wildental Via Ferrata you have to take the left way, for the Suedwand Via Ferrata you go on and take the right way.
Both Via Ferratas, Wildental and Suedwand, have a height difference of about 320m and are class B/C, KS3. The Suedwand Via Ferrata is slightly easier. Its exposition is S-SW, the Wildental Via Ferrata is NW-N.

Getting There

You can take trains to Saalfelden and then a bus to Bachwinkel.
