Alpine Club Vienna

Group Activities

The Alpine Club Vienna – a branch of the Alpine Federation OEAV, Section Austria – is a club that provides English speaking people living in Vienna to “get outside and get involved” in Austria. The group was founded in 1995, bringing together two groups of people. Non natives to Austria whose German is not quite where they would like it to be, and Natives of Austria who enjoy an English Speaking Club. In a true win-win situation, these two sides meet and explore what the Alpine environment offers, mutually sharing a love and commitment to the outdoors.

Regular meetings and events are the backbone of the club, and spontaneous events add even more opportunities to get outside and get involved. The club is formed from 100% volunteers and works with a “friends inviting friends” guiding principle. We are not tour guides, and we do not offer our services for a fee. However, we can bring you into contact with individuals who do just this.
Each leader agrees to lead one or more events throughout the year. They plan it, and share their experience with the rest of us.

Ski Touring Silvretta

By: Edi Posluschny


A trip to the Silvretta range through the Jamtal Valley. A 12 km ascent from Galtür to Jamtal lodge at an altitude of 2,165 m. The Jamtal lodge had been established in 1882,then partly damaged in 1999 by an avalanche, but restored and modernised in a short time. It has always been a training center for the Tyrolian mountain rescue force and a starting point for innumarable tours up to more than 3000 m. It is also a good starting point for crossing to neighbouring valleys.
