Mountaineering Village Kreuth

  Whose is the Future? Mass Tourism or Mountaineering Village

Fireside-Chat in the Stieler-Haus

Three months ago Kreuth joined the small number of Bavarian “mountaineering villages”. However, not all of Kreuth: only 13 of its 17 districts, because those belonging to the residential community around Lake Tegernsee were explicitly excluded by the German Alpine Club. A mountaineering village must preserve its organically grown layout, protect the environment and not be marred by touristic mega-structures such as large-scale hotels, lifts and the like. Quite on the contrary: the point of mountaineering villages is to demonstrate that there is another way and how that can look. In the Tegernsee Valley, these two worlds collide. Perspectives for this co-existence and the general idea of mountaineering villages will be discussed by Dr. Georg Bayerle (Bavarian Broadcasting), Kreuth’s Mayor Josef Bierschneider and the East Tyrol farmer and entrepreneur Josef Schett, who lives in a flagship mountaineering village in the Villgraten Valley.
