Alpine Outdoor Gallery
An exhibition about mountaineering legends and Alpine stories in the Kaiserbach valley in Kirchdorf in Tirol!
Alpine Outdoor Gallery provides you with Alpine history in passing and presents seven mountaineering legends who are still alive today, all of whom have an intense relationship with the Wilder Kaiser. The Walk of Fame about famous mountaineers is around three kilometres in length. Former greats from the realm of show business are honoured in Hollywood by way of stars on the boulevard, while on this route it is pieces of rock that denote the stations. The interior recounts the living legends of Alpinism.
For instance there is a station dedicated to Peter Habeler, who was once the first to climb Mount Everest without oxygen, and others to German climbing heroes Alexander and Thomas Huber, and to Stefan Glowacz. Young Tirol heroine Barbara Zangerl and Helma Schimke, who is now over 90 years old, and a pioneer in women's mountaineering, represent ladies in the Alpine world. Tirol men Markus Bendler and Peter Brandstätter are the mountaineers representing this region.

These successful mountaineers have contributed too by providing testimonials of their lives. Helma Schimke, who was the first woman to scale the many summits in the Kaiser mountains, provided her first mountain rope on loan, which she once swapped for a winter coat. Blind Mount Everest conqueror, Andy Holzer, decided on a pair of sun goggles. Whether you are on a bus tour or are an extreme climber ... Everyone can experience Alpine history in passing on this new trail.
