'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' climbing garden: catching the climbing bug

There is danger of contagion at 'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' climbing garden in Ahornach near Sand in Taufers: the climbing bug is everywhere. Children and beginners can go on their first forays into climbing here.
The symptoms of the climbing bug are easy to spot: those infected have an unquenchable thirst for vertical rock faces and want to climb up every boulder, no matter how steep. They enjoy reaching dizzying heights. These symptoms may last a lifetime and some of them were first spotted at 'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' climbing garden in Sand in Taufers.
 
'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' – a real gem of a climbing garden
Of course, not everyone is instantly seized by a passion for climbing when they first scale a wall. In 'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' climbing garden, there's a strong chance they will be, however. It was intended to be a family climbing garden and designed with mainly children and beginners in mind. Climbing novices have 30 climbing routes at their disposal, which promise a smooth introduction to this vertical sport. Even a short 'via ferrata' has been drilled into the rock here, so that there is a slightly longer but easily managed tour available.
The climbing garden is best approached from Sand in Taufers. From there, follow the road to the district of Ahornach. Once through Ahornach, there is a street sign on the right after around five kilometres to 'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' Gasthof, or restaurant. Your destination is not far from here. The owners of the restaurant organise regular climbing courses geared towards beginners for groups of over eight persons. A certified mountain guide introduces novice clamberers to the most important techniques involved in climbing, explains the equipment and shows how to secure it properly. After a day on the rocks, a light snack is served at the inn to refresh your weary muscles.
 
Rock solid
However, the municipality of Sand in Taufers is not just a real gem for inexperienced climbers. Close by 'Kofler zwischen den Wänden' climbing garden the slightly more challenging 'Heachnbichl-Tobl' and 'Tobl' climbing gardens may be found. The routes drilled into the rock lead as far as 80 metres upwards and the quality of the granite rock there is appreciated by climbers all over the area. 'Speikboden-Drittlsond' climbing garden, which lies very close to the popular Speikboden ski resort, may also be found between Sand in Taufers and Luttach in the municipality of Ahrntal.
 
Genuine handiwork
If you still have any strength left in your fingers after a week at the climbing gardens of Sand in Taufers, there are two further options here to treat the climbing bug. One of them is a 'via ferrata' called 'Pursteinwand', which starts right in Sand. The two-hour ascent is relatively tricky and is only recommended to experienced climbers. The top part is very exposed and can be quite exhausting in places.
The next option in Sand in Taufers and the surrounding area are the two great high rope climbing gardens. The village rafting club does not just have rugged dinghy rides on offer, but also has a high rope garden of up to 14 metres in height featuring hanging bridges, balance beams and other obstacles to overcome. 'Schwarzbachalm' and 'Enzwaldile', the newest and most modern in South Tyrol, are another couple of high rope gardens that offer high obstacle courses. Both are located in the municipality of Ahrntal valley, but are not far from Sand in Taufers.
