- The Whole Year Round
Since 2004 there has been a lot of activity at the Burgfels in Losenstein, which has developed into a popular climbing garden in the Enns Valley. After extensive cleaning work with many helpers, many interesting routes in the middle grades were elicited from the rock. With a reasonable length of 25 - 30 metres, you can also spend a lot of rope and the Burgfels also earns a not inconsiderable part of its popularity through its top protection.
A little special feature: at the end of the "Ramazotti" tour, there is actually a bottle of Ramazotti hanging from which anyone who clips the belay is welcome to take a sip.
Burgfels closed from 1 April - 31 July
For nature conservation reasons - nesting time of the crag martin, which is already very rare in Upper Austria - the Burgfels is closed to climbing during the main breeding season from 1 April to 31 July. Outside this period, climbing is allowed without restrictions.
22 routes from 5+ to 9+ (23 - 29 metres)

Best time of day/year
A real tip for spring or late autumn. The location under the castle ruins and the orientation to the southwest provide a thermal under the walls that still allows climbing in a T-shirt when it is already or still shady all around.
Limestone with many ledges
Directly under the walls of the castle ruin of Losenstein
from the church 200 metres
from Steyr 22 km
From the car park facing the castle rock - past the left end of the wooden stone protection wall - in 2 minutes to the entrance. Stay on the trail to the rock wall and avoid stepping on the semi-dry grass.
