Background Information:
The Schmittenhöhe is a mountain, 1,965 m AA high, on the eastern edge of the Kitzbühel Alps. It is the local mountain of the district capital of Zell am See, from where a cable car was built in 1927 by Adolf Bleichert & Co. that runs to the summit. The cable car system has been renovated several times since. From the summit of the Schmittenhöhe there is a good view of over 30 three-thousanders as well as the lake of Zeller See, the river basin and the whole Saalach valley.

The Schmittenhöhe has pistes for winter sports. From the Schmittenhöhe numerous long-distance flights may be made by paraglider into the Pinzgau region whose straight, east-west orientation enables long flights to be made.

I’m mainly a landscape photographer and take my camera with me on every trip. Though I’m still a learner/amateur-photographer I won several challenges and sold many works at several sites to different people all over the world.
