Vienna, all Austria and World Weather
Alpine Club Vienna
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.
February Meeting & Presentation
Ice Climbing Adventures in North America
Ice climbing is one of the main disciplines of mountaineering. The terrain ranges from relatively low angle glaciers to reach mountain summits to climbing vertical frozen waterfalls. In this presentation Harvey will share some of his ice climbing experiences with slides and discussion of what makes ice climbing rather special. As a bonus Harvey will also show slides of a recent mixed snow, rock, and ice ascent of Piz Roseg in Switzerland.

December Meeting & Presentation
The Lycian Way
20 Nov 2013
By: Hazel Winter
Hiking the Lycian Way – Turkey’s first long distance walking route, and classed as
"One of the SUNDAY TIMES WORLD’S TEN BEST WALKS".
The Likya Yolu is a 509-km hiking trail along the Lycian coast of south-west Turkey. It begins at Fetiye in the west and ends in the village of Hisarçandýr in the mountains near the City of Antalya. It passes through many historical sites including Patara, where St Nikolas was born and grew up, and Myhra where he was bishop.
It takes you off the beaten track, well away from tourists and crowded beaches. What makes it unique is the combination of the rugged Taurus Mountains with crystal-clear streams, ancient historical sites with the cliffs and sandy beaches of the turquoise Mediterranean invitingly near.
You can do it the hard way with rucksack and tent and be your own pack-horse. Or hike in easy stages, stay in pansiyons or enjoy the hospitality of villagers. A challenge and an education!
