  • Conquer the largest rock wall in the Eastern Alps.

Surrounded by the stunningly scenic Bavarian Alps and Königsee Lake, Watzmann towers above its surroundings.

With its 1.800 meter vertical limestone wall on its eastern face, or Berchtesgadener-weg, Watzmann is also a prize in the eye of serious scramblers and over the course of 2-days, we will summit part of the massif.

After meeting in Schönau am Königsee, we will make our way to St. Bartholomä by crossing Königsee Lake is a small tourist boat.

After disembarking, we will head to Ostwandlager, where we will spend the night.

The next morning, we wake up early and spend about an hour hiking toward the rock face. Once we have arrived at the base of this massive rock wall, we will spend the next seven hours scrambling, climbing and hiking the Berchtesgadener-weg until we reach the summit.

After taking some time to enjoy the view at the top, we will decide which route to descend down. Hiking back to Bartholomä will take about 3.5 hours.

About the Guide


Born in the Austrian Alps, the connection to the mountains was there from early on. Started skiing as a 3 year old kid, bit later climbing and mountaineering stepped in my live. Skiing and climbing all over the Alps and abroad became a huge part of my life.

One of my favorite places in the Alps are the mountains around Chamonix and Zermatt. Since graduating as a fully-certified Mountain guide, I’ve been able to share my passion for skiing and climbing with my guests. When I’m not guiding I try to push my personal limits in climbing and mountaineering. Looking forward reaching summits together.

What People are Saying about Daniel Toferer


very good guide, wonderful experience

Daniel made our two day guided ascent to the summit of Großglockner an incredible and unforgettable experience. Daniel provided us with quality gear and kept us well informed throughout the whole expedition in terms of the route, weather conditions and safety precautions. Daniel’s communication skills were fantastic and he spoke perfect English. We were very thankful that Daniel gave us a second attempt at the summit after having to turn back on our first attempt due to bad weather (Daniel’s judgement of the conditions was great and we had full confidence in his decision to turn back to ensure safety). The summit was absolutely amazing and we had a lot of fun and good laughs with Daniel. We hope we can book Daniel for another trip soon, Danke!!

Daniel guided us safely to Matterhorn summit via Hörnli Ridge. We visited Swiss and Italian summits and then headed back to Hörnli Hut. In very good conditions this whole trip took us just approx. 8 hours. Daniel is a very strong and skilled climber – he knows the route, gives good insight on how to climb each section and is continuously aware during short roping to prevent a possible slip. Just understand that Matterhorn climb is a very intense effort - there\'s not awfully lot of time for taking photos, admiring the views or relaxing during the climb.
