The first via ferrata in the Zillertal on one of the most beautiful and panoramic mountains celebrated its premiere last summer: the via ferrata on the Gerlossteinwand! The 380 m long climb, which is classified as challenging, not only attracts promised mountain reflexes to lofty heights.
The men from the Zell Mountain Rescue have put a lot of heart and soul, sweat and work into the construction of the Gerlossteinwand via ferrata. Over 450 m steal cable, 300 pieces of handles, 230 pieces of cable clamps, 150 pieces of drill anchors and some more were processed.
The alpine via ferrata in the Zillertal is another tourist offer to bring nature-loving, active people of all ages closer to our beeautiful mountain world during their summer holidays in the Zillertal. With the right equipment and correct handling, climbing a climb is possible for everyone: secured by a continuous steel rope from the entrance to the exit, one climbs through the steep rock face using artificial grips and stirrups combined with natural grips. In the Alps, via ferrata are a continuing trend in mountaineering and give hikers a taste of the relam of verticals.
Enjoy the forest, the mountain, the nature in a very individual way - each at his own pace, with verve and power uphill and quickly passionately downhill.

ROM THE FARM "ENTAL" IN SCHWENDAU TO THE ZILLERTAL REGIONAL MUSEUM IN ZELL AM ZILLER
Little is known about the farmstead, which now forms te basis of the Zillertal Regional Museum in the south of Zell. In the year 1713, this date is documented by the first tree, the farm "Ental" was probably established in the Schwendauer faction Burgstall. The estate was acquired in the second half of the 19th century by two single men from "Stolleben" an estate between "Gschöß" and "Penken", and then passed to Sabine Rauter, born Außerhofer, called "Melchar Sawine", by inheritance. Sabine Rauter was the mother of architect Otto Rauter, to whom in the following a seperate section is dedicated. In 1909 Sabine Rauter sold the farm to Hans Tipotsch of the "Spielleite" at Schwendberg. He was the grandfather of Rosina Tipotsch, the last owner who sold the building "Ental" to the Kiwanis Club Zillertal. The Kiwanis Club, in turn, left this centuries-old building substance to the market community of Zell am Ziller.
The closed farm "Ental" located in Schwendau and attributed to the deposit number 90013 has a total size of 5 hectares 92 areas 55m2, of which 0.16 ha are designated as building land, 3.8107 ha are subject to agricultural use and 1.9548 ha are forest areas. According to this, "Ental" was a rather small agricultural enterprise, but it was able to feed its owner and his family.
Today the farm "Ental" is the first historical object of the Zillertal Regional Museum, which was followed by a sacral building in the form of a house chapel, a farm building in the form of the "Löberstall", which originated in the Tux valley, and a faithfully reproduced oven. In the final stage. the ensemble will be supplemented by a granary, a fountain and the house garden that was common in the past in every farmstead.
