Large and very well developed crag in beautiful surrounding, featuring some of Germany's hardest routes and boulders. For many Kochel is a love-hate relationship: long approach, bad rock, hard grades and even harder routes. Definetly not a new-school location, but if you fall in love, Kochel will offer you everything you need. A playground especially for those mastering grade 9 and above.

Access issues

Wiesenwand and Keltenwand may be off limits sometimes due to cows grazing. Parts of Atlantiswand might be temporary closed due to birds nesting.


Takes 45mins to walk from the Kochel train station to 'Wiesenwand' and another 45mins to 'Atlantis wand'. Alternatively, there is also a bus that stops next to 'Wiesenwand' (bus stop: Altjoch) roughly every two hours during the day.

For most sectors, please park your car at the powerplant.
