3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct




  • Enjoy the experience of reaching the summits of the Lagginhorn and Weissmies.
  • Spend 2 comfortable nights in the Weissmieshutte.
  • Ideal for people looking to climb their first 4000 meter plus peaks in the Alps.


The perfect climbing tour for people who want to tackle their first 4000 plus meter peaks in the Alps, this 3 day trip is definitely an adventure worth enjoying. During this trip, we will be climbing to the summits of Weissmies (4,017m) and the Lagginhorn (4,010m). Both of these peaks are part of the 82, 4000 meter plus peaks found throughout the Alps.

While this trip is a great starter in the Alps, participants should still have prior climbing experience. You should also be in good physical condition because we will be spending approximately 8 hours per day climbing and ascending up to 1,300 meters per day as well.

After beginning and departing from Saas Grund, the hut base of our trip will be the Weissmieshutte (2,726m). Very comfortable, with fantastic views of the Alps, the hut also provides great access to both Weissmies and the Lagginhorn.

Scaling Weissmies is the easier of the two peaks to climb, as there is no real technical aspects. However, you should have experience with crampons. For the Lagginhorn, the climb is a bit more technical, but not too much. Thus giving you 2 great climbs that you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy.

Along with the two peaks you will be climbing on this trip, you will also get to visit Kreuzboden, and enjoy a wonderfully scenic train ride in the Alps.

Climbing to the summits of Weissmies and the Lagginhorn is a fantastic experience. And on this trip, you can reach both of those summits in just 3 days. To join me on this trip, just send me a request. I look forward to guiding you.

I also offer a 4 day trip that will take you to the summits of Obergabelhorn and Zinalrothorn.

About the guide

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.
