Travel Update Summer 2020: Most destinations, sites and parks reopened with limitations. Check the official websites and read our crucial ‘BEST TIME TO GO' and ‘AVOIDING THE CROWDS’ tips:
The summer is the best time to visit the ferrata. I would say it is possible to climb it from April till October but it depends on the weather. I recommend to climb it in dry conditions, it is much easier.
This little via ferrata lies near the town of Bechyne in the south of Bohemia, Czech Republic. It is a training via ferrata with D/E difficulty. It is very demanding and strength and stamina are essential. It is situated few feet above the river Luznice. It is not very scenic, but it is fun! There is also a rope bridge above the water. Please bear in mind that this via ferrata is a dead end ferrata. It means you have to go all the way back to the starting point. It takes approximately 2 hours to climb it but it depends mainly on your fitness level.
It is difficult to find the ferrta so here is some info: Closest town is Bechyně, the street name Zářečí, parking coordinates 49°17'28.27 / 14°28'14.38, Ferrata coordinates 49°17'13.87 / 14°28'16.19. You can find a small map in the pictures section.
