The via ferrata scales the cliff face in the very heart of town, just across the river from Decin Castle. Opened in April 2014, it now offers 14 climbing routes of various levels of difficulty. The complex is freely accessible at no charge. Climbing sets can be rented nearby. For safety reasons, climbing is forbidden when it is raining or the cliff face is wet. This activity is suitable for any reasonably active, healthy individual, including children. No previous climbing experience is necessary. An experienced guide can be hired to help you conquer the wall.

Besides sturdy shoes, you’ll need a complete climbing set. If you don’t have your own equipment, you can borrow it for a fee. There are several rental centers at the foot of the climbing wall that offer guide services. You can leave your backpacks and other belongings at the rental centers to pick up later. They are open every day until late afternoon.
