Yes, a helmet should be necessary, because stones can always be released from above. Yes, experienced and sporty people do not necessarily need a via ferrata set.
But: No: Fearful, Unfit and not afraid of heights have lost nothing on the via ferrata. Especially since you already have about 1200 meters in the legs when entering the via ferrata. And still has about 700 in front of him.

Easy via ferrata Difficulty A / B on probably the fastest way to the Zugspitzgipfel. Apart from the different cable cars. He has the name because of the passage through a rock hole right at the beginning. For experienced and physically fit to make even without via ferrata set. Helmet should already be worn because it is easy for stones to be released from above. Even if the difficulty is not really great, in my opinion, not dizziness and bad habits have not lost there. Especially since you should remember that you already have about 1200 meters in height at the entrance. Not everyone gets really focused on that. And then to the 700 meters in front of him.
I can not completely understand the people who make the climb from top to bottom. That can not really be fun.

The via ferrata has to be classified in difficulty level A / B. For beginners, timid, children and not afraid of heights, it is advisable to create a via ferrata set.
Experienced people will not need this.
But a helmet should be a "must", because stones can always be kicked off by previous ones.
