Via Ferrata days for kids (and terrified moms)

Via Ferrata Dolomites Family Holiday 1

Don’t worry the via ferrata is the best and most safety experience to approach the rock climbing. Every person (in a age between 7 and 70 years) can climb a easy via ferrata.
Around Bolzano there are many easy and short via ferratas to begin your soft approach at the vertical world.
Generally I begin with the Via Ferrata Col Rodella, a short via ferrata in the south wall of this peak in the central Dolomites. Here we have lot of time to learn the via ferrata climbing technic and last to enjoy our specialities at the rifugio (mountain hut) of the peak.
The via ferrata experience continue with a second via ferrata day: Via Ferrata Roda de Vaèl, here we climb a big peak of the Dolomites along the easy north-south crest and visit one other very nice, and historic important, mountain hut: the Rifugio Roda de Vaèl. Both via ferratas have a good ergonomy for kids. Do you like climb other via ferratas? In the Dolomites we have about others 600…. ask me more info.

This is a inusuale cultural day, a mix of bicycle and visits of castles. Read it, is realistical amazing!
The day start in Walter square in the centre of the old town of Bolzano. Here we rent the rental bikes and go on the north bicycle path in direction to the first castle. Runckestein, we arrive here in about 30 min. We park the bicycles here and in 10 min of steep road we are at the door of this particular Castle. Runckelstein is famous for the internal frescos panting and because this castle conserved a original medioeval form located in a impressive rock peak.
For the visit we spend about one hour, then we continue with the bicycle path in direction south. In short time we see south of Bolzano the large form of the Sigmundskron (or Firmian castle), this is the biggest castle of South Tyrol. Before was a preistoric castle, then a Roman fort, then a medioeval castle, then a military fort, and now is a “mountaineering museum”. Now in the internal spaces of this large castle is located the “Reinold Messner Mountain Museum”. We arrive in 1 hour by bicycle.
Before the visit we have the lunch in the caracteristical restaurant of the castle, then we spend sure 3 hours to visit the museum and this big castle. At end we come back in Bolzano with the same bicycle path to Walther square.
In one day we visit two great castles and go about 2 hours in bicycle, no bad as proposal….
