The via ferrata Oscar Schuster is an easy one also suitable for beginners. The way to the startingpoint is not difficult and you can make it shorter taking the funicular to the forcella. Anyway reaching the summit you will have an astonishing view to the Seiser Alm, the Schlern and also the valley.
