Rofen is the highest, permanently settled farm within the Eastern Alps, located at 2,013m above sea level.
The Rofenhöfe farms are located 2km above of Vent at an altitude of 2,014m. Visit the famous Haflinger breed of the farmer Franz Klotz.
Leander Klotz was an ancestor of today's inhabitants. In 1848 he was the first man to climb the Wildspitze mountain. He and his brother Nikodemus were trained to be mountain guides by the glacier priest Franz Senn.
The suspension bridge was built by the Klotz brothers in 1967 and renewed by the provincial government in 1984. The bridge is 46m long. The Rofnerschlucht gorge is 31m in depth. Earlier only a small footbridge led across the Rofnerache river. Climb a number of small rocks to get to and from the bridge.
