Zell am See mountaineering

Not specified


3 Days

Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep


First Time


Are you ready for your first mountaineering experience? Let me guide you around Zell am See, in Salzburg. There is much to learn if you want to feel comfortable and be safe in the mountains: this is your chance!

During three fantastics days, we will be in the area of the beautiful Grossglockner area. In fact, our base for the three days will be the Oberwalde hut. In my opinion it's the best high alpine base in the entire Eastern Alps.

There are so many spots to practice mountaineering in the surroundings! And the terrain is also very varied: snow, corn snow, rock and ice. The glaciated peaks of the Glockner group are waiting for us.

You will learn all the basics of the practice in this 3-day mountaineering workshop. For example, how to use the equipment and how to progress with and without crampons on the different terrains. You will learn climbing techniques particularly for glaciers. And also rescue techniques on glaciers.

Want to join me mountaineering in the Austrian Alps? Then wait no more, contact me! If you are looking for other activities in the mountains, I can also take you for via ferrata in Zell am See.

About the guide

The mountains have always been a great part of my life. I was a youth leader of the Alpine Association of Zell am See, Bergrettungsmann, and completed the training as a ski and snowboard instructor. I studied meteorology because it can be very useful in mountaineering. My first trips took me to the Eastern Alps, around Piz Bernina and Biancogray. I also had the chance many times the amazing Mont Blanc range and the peaks around Chamonix. Finally, I got to practice in the high mountains of Bolivia and Chile.
I have really found my calling as a mountain guide. I am right where I always wanted to be. The smile on my clients' faces at the summit or after an intense ski day is so rewarding!
I am part of a team of local guides (Bergführer Zell am See Kaprun), all friends of mine, guys with whom I share the passion for the mountains. They are Markus B, Markus H and Gerald, all IFMGA certified guides. Our philosophy is "to know how to do something well is to enjoy it". Therefore, we always keep learning to give you the best experience.

Excellent experience with Andreas who is an outstanding guide. Rain and icy conditions made it quite challenging, but Andreas still made it into a very enjoyable climb for my friend and colleague Johan, who, while very fit and an avid hiker, tried mountaineering for the first time.

We didn't climb Grosser Wiesbachhorn, because Andreas suggested a more interesting climb on the Granatspitze. Granatspitze was a great climb, although we didn't really get to see much of the scenery because of rain and fog. But the guiding went perfect, Andreas is a friendly and calm guide. I would definitely reccommend him.

We had quick and clear communication with Andi even before the trip started. In consultation we forward the trip a week as the weather was nice, great suggestion of Andi. He has a lot of knowledge and experience, we felt safe the entire climb and hike. We slept at Stüdlhütte, which did not disappoint. Dinner and breakfast were extensive and so tasty. Would absolute recommend the trip and Andi as a guide to anyone!

The guide was super friendly and knows the mountain inside out. He made me feel secure at the sections that were a bit more exposed. I also appreciated that he took a couple of pictures of me as I was travelling on my own.
