Cellonstollen - Klettersteig - B
The Cellon tunnel, built during the First World War, is the first underground via ferrata in Carinthia. The 250-meter long tunnel route is also suitable for children (possibly a safety rope) and is therefore an exciting adventure with a short approach.
From the north: Via the A 10 to the Spittal / Millstätter See junction. Continue on the B 100 to Oberdrauburg and over the B 110 to the Plöckenpass.
From the east: Via the A 2 to Arnoldstein. Continue on the B 111 to Kötschach and via the B 110 to the Plöckenpass.
By public transport: By train to Oberdrauburg or Hermagor and further by bus via Kötschach-Mauthen to the Plöckenpass (only May to September).
From the parking lot across the street to the avalanche gallery (road tunnel). There the path to the Cellonstollen or Geotrail (signpost) begins. Follow the marked path only briefly until a climb branches off to the left after a few meters. Crossing above the houses of the border station and then steeper up to the entrance at a slab.
From the exit along the markings to the Cellon shoulder, there you descend west to the Lower Collinetta Alm and continue down to the Plöcken Pass. The Cellon tunnel should not be used as a descent - the often slippery shaft is not easy to walk down and the oncoming traffic in the dark tunnel is also not optimal.
Points of interest
The Cellonstollen in combination with a tour of the old war positions at the exit is a nice easy via ferrata tour.
