Zugspitze Anniversary Ridge
One of the most beautiful ridge tours in the Alps
The Jubiläumsgrat is one of the great classic ridge crossings of the Alps. In terms of scenery, it presents itself immensely impressive, with breathtaking deep views and a panorama that is unparalleled. The surrounding mountain ranges are within reach and the distant view from the Swiss Alps over the Central Alps and the wide pre-Alpine plain is unique. High above the Höllental, the exposed ridge climbing is quite demanding and the length of the tour should not be underestimated, but with the appropriate experience, surefootedness and endurance, the Jubiläumsgrat is an absolute pleasure on the rope of your mountain guide. No wonder that this tour enjoys an exceptional reputation among ambitious mountaineers.
We will gladly organize a certified mountain and ski guide for you at short notice. During the high season (June - September & January - March), however, a corresponding lead time should be calculated in order to be able to arrange the organization optimally. Even in the company of a private mountain guide, high alpine tours make special demands on the participants. We will discuss these with you in detail in advance and, if necessary, offer you a course from our range of preparatory courses.

In some places, wire ropes facilitate progress (up to C). For an ascent with mountain guide:in is Surefootedness and head for heights and a very good Condition for 10 h mountaineering and climbing experience required, climbing experience in alpine terrain is advantageous.
"The Jubiläumsgrat is often wrongly described as a via ferrata. It is certainly not. Much of the route is exposed walking and easy climbing terrain, where I walk with my guests on a short rope.
The key passages are climbing passages in the III degree and strenuous via ferrata passages. Overall, the tour is day-filling and long, especially since the descent from the Alpspitze also requires full concentration."

Glacier and climate excursion
Glaciers have fascinated people since time immemorial. They are fascinating natural wonders, sensitive ecosystems, water reservoirs, places of beauty, permanence and change at the same time. The Northern Schneeferner on the Zugspitzplatt is one of the last four glaciers in Germany and an excellent illustrative example of current climatic developments and geological background. Learn everything about the wonderful natural phenomenon of glaciers!
The Zugspitz Trek is one of our favorite hikes and a classic in the Vivalpin program. The highlight of the tour is undoubtedly the ascent of the 2,962-meter Zugspitze, Germany's highest peak. The extraordinarily beautiful route takes you on easy trails through densely forested valleys, over sunny transitions and finally across the eternal ice of the Schneeferner to the Zugspitze.
The most beautiful ascent to the Zugspitze leads through the Höllental. The challenging mountain tour offers a lot of variety on 2,200 meters of ascent, from easy hiking trails to moderately difficult via ferrata passages to a glacier climb.
Zugspitze Iron Age
First climbed in 2014, the Iron Age with a wall height of 1,200m and difficulties up to IV is today one of the classics on the Zugspitze.
The Alpspitz Ferrata is without doubt one of the most beautiful via ferratas in the Northern Alps. It skilfully avoids all steep steps and leads purposefully in moderate difficulty (B) to the summit. Attention: On the descent via the east shoulder there are still some airy climbing passages.
Zugspitze Pure Valley
The route taken by the first climbers from Partnachklamm to the Zugspitze has since been regarded as the normal route to Germany's highest peak. This requires an overnight stay at the Reintalangerhütte.
The route from Ehrwald via Gatterl to the 2,962m high Zugspitze is the easiest and shortest way to Germany's highest peak. It is technically easy and entertaining, but at the same time rewards with fantastic views.
Zugspitze stopper puller
The ascent from Eibsee via Wiener Neustädter Hütte is the least frequently used of the classic Zugspitze routes. It is more demanding than the route through Reintal and less spectacular than the Höllental route. "The golden mean" of the three classic Zugspitze ascents.
