    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.
