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.
