  • Climb to the summits of 2 great peaks: Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn.

  • Spend 2 nights in the comfortable and scenic alpine Rothornhutte.

  • Spend some time exploring the beautiful town of Zermatt.


Definitely 2 of the most stunning peaks in the Swiss Alps, near Zermatt, the Obergabelhorn (4,063m) and Zinalrothorn (4,221m) are amazing mountains to climb. They also happen to be 2 of the 82, 4000 meter plus peaks spread throughout the Alps. And on this 4 day adventure, I would like to guide you to each of these peaks’ summits.

Our trip will begin in Zermatt. From there, we will make our way up to Arbenbiwak, where we will spend the night. After that, for the next 2 days, you will get to reach the summits of Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn. And at the end of each of those 2 days, you will get to relax and rest in the comfortable Rothornhutte (3,197m). Finally, on the last day of the trip, we will descend from the hut back to Zermatt.

This trip is designed for experienced climbers, as the difficulty level of this trip is at a UIAA 4. And because we will be trekking and climbing for approximately 10 hours per day, and ascending between 1,000 and 1,600 meters per day, you should be in good physical condition as well.

Great views and a thrilling experience await you on this 4 day expedition. If you would like to join me on this trip that will take you to the summits of the Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn, just send me a request. I know you’ll have an incredible experience that you will never forget.

I also offer a 5 day triple summit trip in Valais that will take you to the top of three amazing mountains: Weisshorn, Bishorn and the Dent Blanche.

About the guide

guide profile img

I'm a professional UIAGM mountain guide who works all over the world and has an addiction for traveling and working in many different places. I live in the southern part of Bavaria/Germany in a beautiful region called Allgäu. It's the perfect location to explore the Alps.

I work as a guide year-round and I love spending time with my clients in the mountains. Fulfilling their dreams and sharing beautiful moments together is what motivates me to do a great job every day.

I have spent a lot of time in the mountains since I was a kid. Mountaineering, climbing, ice climbing and running have always been a big part of my life and I hope to continue for many more years.

I was part of the German National Ski Mountaineering Team and have competed in all major global races, including Pierra Menta, PDG, Mezzalama, Tour du Rutor etc. I participated in many Worldcup races as well. This experience was very important for my guiding career in terms of motivation, knowledge and experience!

I guide my clients all over the world. I'll take you anywhere you want to go and we can reach a mountaineering goal together.

Please get in touch with me if you're interested in one of my programs or want to discuss a particular goal you have in the mountains. It will be a pleasure to make you an offer and discuss projects and plans for the future.

Hope to see YOU in the mountains.
