Gipfelglück / Bergführer Schiller

Born and raised in Hohenpeißenberg, I have always had the mountains "in my eye".

After working in an office for many years, I changed my office chair for a climbing harness in 2013 and began training to become a state-certified mountain and ski guide. After three years of training, I successfully passed the state examination in 2017 and have been on the road with guests in all types of mountain sports ever since.

As a father of twins and husband, I live together with my family in Hohenpeißenberg, an ideal starting point into the mountain world of the Alps and beyond. 

Erdmann Käppeler

Welcome to my website. My name is Erdmann Käppeler and mountain guiding is more than a profession, it is a passion and a challenge at the same time.

Mountain guiding means to me to be out in the mountains with you, no matter what age or level of experience, and to make the most of the time available. It means making good decisions in order to keep the risk involved in every mountain adventure at a tolerable level. In this way, many experiences and impressions can be gathered and intensively experienced. I guarantee the best risk management through the highest alpine qualifications and constant further training.

Open and transparent communication is important to me in order to meet on equal terms. Mountain guiding means reaching the desired goal together and making dreams come true.

Rainer Treppte 

Born on 15.04.1959 in Dresden, I took my first steps on the rock at the age of 11 in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains. Due to the not exactly usual protection in the Saxon climbing routes, I was able to acquire the prerequisites for my later alpine successes in the following Sturm und Drang years.

I have lived in Immenstadt in the Allgäu since 1985. My profession is toolmaker. In 2010 I successfully completed my training as a state-certified mountain and ski guide. After moving to the Allgäu in 1985, I was finally able to climb big alpine routes.

In the many years of my climbing career, I have been able to fulfil some of my childhood dreams in the mountains of the world. For more than 40 years I have been travelling in the mountains without any accidents and my passion for climbing, mountaineering and skiing has a firm grip on me.

Alpinschule Allgäu

Specialising in exceptional hiking, climbing and ski touring trips, we combine nature and sport with that certain something. Away from the mainstream, we want to show you nature at its best and therefore attach great importance to sustainability and environmental awareness. As a pioneer for ski touring trips to Norway, we work together with the Landscape Hotel Juvet to meet this demand. The same applies to our exclusive sailing-climbing trips in the Calanques and Sardinia. The combination with sailing yacht as accommodation decelerates and offers exciting climbing experiences.

Alpinschule Ortler

For over 30 years we have been the leading alpine school in the Ortler area and your reliable partner for the "mountain adventure" in Val Venosta. Our experienced mountain guides are on site all year round and know "our mountains" like no other. They know the safe routes, the easier or lonelier way and where to find the most beautiful powder snow. With passion and enthusiasm for the mountains, we would like to accompany you to your desired summit and make sure that the "adventure mountain" becomes an unforgettable experience for you.
