The CALMONT Klettersteig was constructed in 2002 as a joint project by the municipalities of Bremm, Ediger-Eller and Neef. The German Alpine Association e.V. secured the route with steel cables, ladders, hoops and pins to ensure a safe ascent and descent.
Hikers need sturdy footwear, no fear of heights and a good level of fitness for hiking and climbing in the CALMONT REGION. There are many rest huts and viewing cabins located along the route. We recommend a hike in the morning or in the early evening on hot summer days. Be sure to have enough water and headwear with you. In an emergency, call 112 giving the location number shown where the monorack railway crosses the via ferrata, which will help rescuers locate you in the event of an emergency.
Special care is needed during and after rain or snow and ice. Tread carefully, wear sturdy footwear and avoid overestimating your ability or risky outings.
Be sure to take food and drink with you (especially water). Take into account the weight of your backpack. Be sure to plan in breaks, carry a mobile phone with you (for emergencies) and avoid hiking when there is a risk of a storm.
