Land of mountains - mountaineering villages

We are currently working on a new season for the Land der Berge series on the topic of mountaineering villages.The mountaineering villages emerged from an initiative by various Alpine club associations and distinguish those regions that, as pioneers and pioneers, exemplify the model of gentle tourism in harmony with nature.

This initiative gave rise to a European project. Today there are mountaineering villages in Italy, Switzerland, Germany and of course Austria. There are 21 such mountaineering regions on Red-White-Red Ground alone, some of which are home to just a few dozen residents.

In this new series we dedicate ourselves to the lives of the people who live this project and keep it alive. Unique personalities guide us through their everyday experiences and at the same time explain to us the history of their hometowns.

Alpine Legends - women on the peak

In this new episode of Land der Berge we dedicate ourselves to the first Austrian women's expedition to the Shisha Pangma in 1994 and the unique successes of the female mountaineers, some of which have been forgotten .


Shisha Pangma is the eighth highest mountain in the world and rises just over 8,000 meters. Despite these impressive data and the fact that the expedition was partially successful, with at least some of the participants making it to the top of the eight-thousander, the media response was not particularly positive for the mountaineers.

We also meet female legends on the mountain, such as the world ice climbing champion Ines Papert, or the first Austrian woman to climb all 14 eight-thousanders in the world, Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner.

Most of the focus was on the development of an alleged "cat fight" and the sporting performance was completely pushed into the background. In this new production, we dispel these prejudices and highlight the sporting achievements of the first Austrian women's expedition to an eight-thousander and other extreme mountaineers who are in no way inferior to their male colleagues.
