NORDKETTE INSPECTION WORKS
  • General,

The Nordkette Cable Railways will be closed from 6th November to 24th November due to inspection works. We thank you for the great summer and can’t wait to start in the new season on 25th November by opening the Christmas market!

An insight into the filming of Servus TV with Heinz Zak.
  • General

Program: Bergwelten - a 50 minute portrait about Heinz Zak in the Karwendel.

The mountains of the Karwendel are the home mountains of the climber and photographer Heinz Zak. He made extremely difficult ascents at the Halleranger (Key to Paradise, 9-, 1987). In 1990 he accomplished the unique and so far not yet repeated speed-crossing of three routes through the notorious Laliderer-Nordwand in 16 hours (Charly Chaplin, 6+, 700 Hm - Northern intersection, 7-, 700 Hm - Schmid Krebs, 6-, 850 Hm).
Furthermore he was able to pass three of the four Karwendel chains in winter alone and the crossing of the Karwendel main ridge (36 summits) in 72 hours is unbelievable!
In the 1990s, Heinz made numerous initial ascents in the Wetterstein and Karwendel.

Hermann Buhl is a very well-known and respected name among mountaineers and climbers. The Innsbruck native was the first person to reach the summit of Nanga Parbat in 1953, and four years later he was one of the first people to conquer Broad Peak. He can be named among the pioneers of the alpine style, a special technique for high mountain climbing whereby even the highest of mountains can be climbed with a small rope team in one line – from the base camp to the summit. The square in front of the Hungerburg Station is dedicated to this extraordinary “mountain man”.
