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.

Skiing and Snowboarding

Go from the heart of Innsbruck to the slopes in just 20 minutes. Due to the fast connection to the city, nothing can stop you from having fun after university or a short working day.

Besides the world-renowned Nordkette Skyline Park and 6 runs of varying difficulty, the Nordkette offers numerous freeride possibilities. One of the absolute highlights is the Hafelar Run; its 70% incline make it one of Europe’s steepest ski runs.

There is also something on offer for children and beginners: magic carpet, snow hill and practice slopes including childcare make the Nordkette a unique experience for children and families.

Every free rider’s heart starts beating faster at the Hafelekar. The unbelievable views of the city below, the seemingly never ending rows of peaks and of course the famous Hafelekar Run leave a lasting impression.

The Igloo Bar at 1,905m is open from December to April and is a great place to relax and chill. The igloo is located right next to the Seegrube Station, and visitors can marvel at its artistic ice sculptures as well as impressive light and sound elements.

The Nordkette Skyline Park is not only an institution among Austrian snow parks, it is also the only park worldwide which can be classified as an in-the-city snowpack.
