"I inherited the „Alpine Club Gene" from my parents, which both were volunteers or still are volunteers. Measuring glaciers with my father taught us how important and beautiful mountains are - above all the protection of the Alps. The rapid melting of the glaciers is now visible to everyone. My mountaineering experience lies mainly in the Hohe Tauern, with an altitude of about 3000 meters such as Rauriser Sonnblick, Bärenköpfe, Granatspitze, Stubachersonnblick, etc. I'm not an extreme alpinist, but I love all kind of outdoor sports, whether mountain biking, climbing, ski touring or just beautiful hut trekkings."
