More Info

Germany has an exciting array of great climbs at its southern border, including some compelling Alpine ascents. The Zugspitze (2,962m) is its tallest mountain, followed by Hochwanner (2,744m) and Watzmann (2,713m).

The mountain ascents in Germany at times require sustained climbs and can exceed 10 hours in duration. It is a great location to get valuable experience on medium-sized peaks before taking on the other indomitable peaks in the Alps and Himalayas.

The scenic views of Germany’s peaks are part of their draw. Views into picturesque Austrian villages of the south, as well as those into the surrounding enchantment of Bavaria, make for incredibly beautiful adventures.

I recently climbed the Zugspitze with you and I really enjoyed it. The guide was through Rudi who at the
time could not climb but got me another guide, Toni from Garmisch. He was excellent and I really enjoyed the day. I would like to say a big thanks to Rudi and Toni and Lupe.
Rudi is hands down the best!! Such an awesome trip to the top!
Communication through emails was a bit bad, but the trip itself was tons of fun!
