Aim high collectively!

Climbing for everyone in the Rhineland.

Always higher by one`s own efforts, backed by the partner on the ground. Each grasp, each step has to fit! Climbing generates thrills and festive mood. Whoever is in search of an unforgettable climbing-adventure, don`t has to travel far. Even in the Rhineland rookies and advanced climbers will find approved summiteer hotspots and varied climbing routes.

High rope course, abandoned ore-bunkers or real rocks?

The best example herefore is the climbing-area “Effels“, located directly beside the state-of-the-art youth hostel Nideggen. Here families, teenagers and also school classes will crest together the Lower Trias Rocks of the Eifel. Accompanied by professional climbing-trainers, there`s the appropriate challenge from very easy to very heavy for everyone. The same is true for the biggest climbing-garden north of the Alps. You`ll find it in the landscape park Duisburg-North, where in former days coke and iron ore were stored. The diverse bold walls as well as the preserved towers are optimally suitable for climbing, and once above a terrific view onto the unique industrial scenery is offered. Already young climbing-fans can get hints&tricks instructed by qualified trainers, for example in the roofed high rope course of the youth hostel Hellenthal or at the family-climbing leisure of the youth hostel Nideggen. Here they can experience how much fun it is to give one another security and to get started as a team.

Win now and lift off!
