If you are looking for an exciting winter mountaineering adventure in Austria or Germany, search no more! Wether you are looking for a winter mountaineering ascent, an ice climbing or avalanche training or a ski tour, we can design a great programme together, according to your wishes and time available.

I offer you a customized winter mountaineering tour, from 1-day to multi-day trips. No matter if you are a beginner or an expert, if you prefer an individual experience or if you come with a group, I will design a trip adapted to your requirements. These are some of the winter options you can choose from:

  • Winter ascent in the Mittenwalder Höhenweg. This is a spectacular knife sharp ridge, above the town of Mittenwald. It forms the borderline between Germany (Bavaria) and Austria (Tyrol). The ridge offers spectacular views into the Wetterstein and Karwendel Ranges, and on clear days you can see the Stubai and Ötztal Alps along the horizon

  • Winter ascent in the Jubiläumsgrat or Jubilee Arête, a climbing route along the arête between the Zugspitze (2962m) and the Hochblassen  (2706 m).

  • Jochberg North face, with various gullies up to 400m. I tis half way between Munich and Garmisch. In winter, it offers mixed routes.

  • Pinnistal, a beautiful side valley of the Stubai Valley.

  • Sellraintal Valley,  hanging gardens for an easy afternoon. This is a tributary valley of the Inntal, at the foot of the Windegg (2577m) in the northern Stubai Alps.

  • Ice climbing training, with steep slope techniques and mixed climbing, including video analysis. 

  • Karwendel Express, a ski touring classic, with bike and ski, on the border between Germany and Austria

  • Ski touring and deep snow training

  • Avalanche Training

However, if you have something different in mind, just let me know and we will make it happen!

Want to join me for an exciting winter adventure? Then send me a request and we will design together the best trip according to your wishes and expectations.

About the guide

IFMGA/IVBV Certified mountain, ski and canyoning guide, member of DAV and VDBS mountaineering and sport climbing teaching and training team. I’ve been part of the VDBS team for the formation and training of German mountain guides for 20 years.

I started climbing at the age of 17. Since 1987 I am certified mountain guide and a passion has become a profession. I live in Scharnitz / Tyrol and I am leader of the moutaineering school Alpenwelt Karwendel in Mittenwald.
Ice climbing in norway, skitouring in morocco, rock climbing in cuba or high mountains in the himalaya - I like it to explore new areas around the world. I led a DAV training expedition for talented young mountaineers in the Tian Shan mountain range with climbing Khan Tengri and did several expeditions to the karakorum mountains and the himalayas.

As a full-time mountain guide, I feel at home in the Karwendel and Wetterstein mountains as well as in the mountains and climbing areas worldwide. I am happy to accompany you as a guide to your desired goal!

Bernd was very professional and experienced. Also flexible which helped as my luggade was delayed so we postponed our climb one day. Our climbs were everything i hoped for so i highly recommend.

Bernd was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable and helpful and really made us feel welcome and took us on an amazing adventure. His climbing coaching was top notch, and we learned a lot in the day. Even dropped us off in town afterwards all the way from the ice climbing location, which was over an hour drive. 10/10

Bernd was absolutely an amazing guide. Our plans in Germany got cancelled as our friend got Covid, so I reached out to Bernd on the 21st with just some ideas for the 24th. Not only did he plan the entire trip for us within a day, but he also provided us all the gear at no extra cost, including mountaineering boots, since we had no gear on us. Had a great day climbing; would highly recommend!

I would Highly recommend Bernd as a guide, he has Decades of experienced in mountaineering and alpining climbing and it shows. He adapted our plan quickly as the weather was very poor, so I still could get the experience needed.

Bernd is a great guide with a wealth of knowledge. My wife and I enjoyed our time with him immensely. He is able to be able to choose the expedition according to our needs. We will definitely do a multi day trip if possible and if there’s a chance. 5star guide
