Well signed trails at Peilstein


Peilstein Hauptwände is the main climbing area at Peilstein. The wall runs approximately north to south and has a mostly western aspect.

With 26 sectors and an immense amount of climbing at a wide range of grades, this area is understandably popular (which can account for popular routes being polished).

Great climbing on mostly single pitch to a few two to three pitch routes. Protection tends to be well maintained glue in bolts with nice lower offs.

There is a Klettersteig (via ferrata) available as well.

A series of well marked trails make travelling to your sector easy. By the shortest trail, it’s about a 15 minute walk through the woods to climbing.

Getting There 

There’s a variety of trails from nearly every direction which one can use to access the climbing at Peilstein. The shortest and most popular may be from the Holzschlag parking lot.

From Vienna, take the A21 and exit at Alland/Mayerling. Go to Alland then toward Baden/Helenental to Mayerling. Turn right in Mayerling towards Wiessenbach and Maria Raisenmarkt. Past Maria Raisenmarkt for 2 kilometers to a small turnoff towards Holzschlag (turn off is near the hotel/restaurant Schwarzenseerhof). Follow the small road to the parking lot across from the Gasthof Holzschlag. Follow the well marked trails to the crag.
