Climbing Challenge – also for beginners, families and groups
Exercise, action and fun – The Climbing Challenge is particularly suitable for beginners, families and groups. Climbing skills are not necessary. But it is also fun for experienced climbers. In our new climbing world you hunt vertically for points. You can climb the climbing walls in a variety of adventurous ways. There are exciting routes with names like:

Face to Face – transparent climbing wall
Turning Discs – rotating grip discs make life difficult for you
Heaven’s ladder – the 13 m high ladder up to the hall ceiling
Speed – with time measurement
Chimney – like in a chimney, which becomes however ever broader the higher you get
Beam – balance on a beam at a height of 10 m and fall into emptiness
Smiley – a route of many smileys
and many more
Unique scoring system -> Climbing Challenge
All these routes are equipped with sensors (control station). On your wrist you wear a badge that registers the climbed routes. On the screen in the gym you can check your current score and see what your colleagues have already climbed.

Your task is to complete one or more challenges. A challenge consists of several routes, which have to be climbed according to a certain specification. Once you have completed all of them, you will receive bonus points for this challenge!

You have two hours to collect as many points as possible. At the checkout you will receive a certificate with your total points and, if you were good enough, a little surprise.

No registration and no prior knowledge

Even without climbing knowledge you can come to us for climbing and take part in the Climbing Challenge. Children must be accompanied by a responsible adult. When visiting for the first time, visitors without climbing knowledge must complete an instruction. The instruction lasts about 10 – 15 minutes and costs Fr. 15.– for up to 6 persons. The instruction can be done daily from 11.00 – 17.00.
