bergpunkt - the swiss alpine school

Bergpunkt is one of the leading Swiss Alpine Schools. We have been passionate about mountain sports for almost 20 years. We aspire to share our knowledge and passion with all our guests.

Join us for basic mountaineering training courses for beginners, coaching for advanced climbers, avalanche courses and multi-day glacier crossings for skiers, ski mountaineering experiences and classic alpine climbs.

In small groups, you receive individual attention by our guides. Giving you a safe and authentic experience is our highest aim.

Note: Most of our guests are Swiss. That's why our website is only available in German. Most of our guides are English speaking though, and are happy to also share their knowledge in English during the courses. Call us or send an email if you have any questions.
