Highlights

 
     

    Climb Austria’s majestic Hochkönig mountain, which stands at 2,841 meters, the highest elevation of the Berchtesgaden Alps.

    The area is famed for being the home of Albert Precht, who had reportedly climbed between 800-1,000 new routes, and dedicated most of his energy towards the limestone walls of Hochkönig.

    Idyllic alpine meadows rest between the peaks of the Hochkönig massif.

    The first day involves multi-pitch training in Weißbach, close to Lofer, before making our ascent to Mitterfeldalm, which towers above nearby rolling fields.

    On the second and third day, we are multi-pitch climbing in the Mandlwänden or in the Imlauer mountains, located at the eastern foothill of the massif. The routes are selected depending on the climbing ability and experience of the group.

    Whatever our route along the way, we will end the trip with a descent to Arthurhaus.

    The level of difficulty for this trip involves a good climbing technique, and it is an advantage to have experience with multi-pitch routes.

    Reserve your place now on this 3-day multi-pitch climb, and get the chance to reach the peak of the Berchtesgaden Alps in Austria.

    About the Guide

     
     

    The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
    I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
    I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.
