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.

The Nordkette is the perfect starting point for a variety of hikes and walks. For example, the short ascent from the Hafelekar station to the Hafelekar peak, the panorama circular trail at the Seegrube or longer expeditions such as hiking into the Karwendel Nature Park via The Goethe Trail. There is something for all hikers and walkers at the Nordkette.

Climbing Arena

It takes about 20 minutes to get from the Seegrube Station to the Nordkette Climbing Arena. There are approximately 40 tours which are mainly single-rope routes at the UIAA difficulty levels 4 – 9, which means they are suitable for both beginner and advanced-level climbers.
