Jubiläumsgrat (Anniversary Ridge) 1-day guided climb

Jubiläumsgrat (Anniversary Ridge) 1-day guided climb | undefined

Andreas, an IFMGA-certified mountain guide, takes you on a 1-day climb to the Jubiläumsgrat, a classic and challenging alpine route on the mountain ridge which connects Zugspitze and Alpspitze.


1 Day

Jun - Sep

Very high



The Jubiläumsgrat (also known as ‘Anniversary Ridge’) is a classic route on Germany’s highest alpine ridge and a precious goal for advanced mountaineers. Would you like to join me for an spectacular 1-day climb? 

This 8 km mountain ridge connects two iconic German summits: Zugspitze (the highest peak in the country, at 2962 m) and Alpspitze (2628 m).

We’ll start this trip very early in the morning and take Zugspitze’s first gondola. Then, we’ll start climbing up and down countless towers, enjoying deep breathtaking views of the Höllental (Hell’s Valley). Around half of our ridge traverse, we’ll reach a bivouac box that has been recently set up.

After that, we’ll continue our way through the many towers and climb up to the Volkarspitze. This exposed ascent is the most difficult part of this ridge crossing. After that we’ll reach the summit of Grieskarscharte (2436 m). Then, right before the Hochblassen, we’ll turn left and then go up to the Alpspitze, the last peak of this climb. Then, we’ll descend to Alspitzbahn mountain station and return to the valley.

The Jubiläumsgrat is a very long and demanding route, that requires excellent physical conditions and a good use of time. Sure-footedness and not suffering from vertigo are essential, as well as being able to climb up to 2nd degree.

Are you ready for the most challenging ridge traverse in Germany? Then send me a request so we can start planning this incredible adventure!

Mountain Guide

My name is Andreas Biberger. I grew up in Mittenwald, in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Already as a child I was drawn to the mountains and spent a lot of time as a child on skis. At some point I started with rock climbing and everything developed gradually. After school, I first learned the profession of coach builder for cars and I also liked it a lot.

Again and again I also joined climbing courses at the local mountain school. Then I started a training to become a state-certified mountain and ski guide. I have always been passionate about endurance sports so I also tried other sports, such as triathlon, and participated in probably the most famous competition, the Ironman in Hawaii. Mountain biking is another big passion of mine.

I am a certified-IFMGA mountain guide, and for more than 20 years I have accompanied guests through the Alps several times a year. But I still like to travel in my homeland in the mountains and guide my guests to lesser-known but beautiful peaks.

What people are saying about BBS-Alpin



Zugspitze via Hollental route was stunning right from the beginning until the end. This was probably the most beautiful climb for me. I enjoyed Ferrara and every step of the climb. I asked Andi to start at 4:30 as I was worry about thunderstorm in the afternoon and he was happy to accommodate my request. Andi was very caring, knowledgeable and patient as I always want to take lots of picture throughout the trip. This is my 3rd trip via Explore-share and I like free hassle of no need to look for a guide on the internet so may use them again in the feature.
