Overview

Via ferrata Seeben is a very sportive, steep and breezy iron route in the Mieming Range, Tyrol Austria. This exposed route rises 250 meters above Ehrwald at a pitch of Ehrwalder Sonnenspitze. This via ferrata leads next to a waterfall to Seebensee a very colorful lake in the Mieming Range. From the exit of the route you can go to the lake in 20 minutes. If you want to do this route you should continuing to Seebensee, because you can have a great view to Zugspitze and the Mieming mountains at Seebensee. The route has a difficult of D/E of the Kurt-Schall-Scala (A->E). My experience tolds me that you must have a good physical condition whether the route is not so long.

You can see here a topo of the via ferrata.
