Bavarian Capital Munich
Munich, which is said to be the “Alpinistic Capital” of Germany, has always been a supporter of climbing competitions such as the 2005 World Championships and has always been interested in being a partner of climbing in general. So it is no surprise that after the 2009 EYS, Munich will stage another top climbing event in 2010: A Boulder Worldcup in downtown Munich!
DAV sections München and Oberland
This is a cooperation of the two biggest DAV sections (i.e. clubs within the DAV) with now more than 120.000 members altogether. München-Oberland is very active in competition climbing and has established a very successful youth climbing team during the past few years. Many of the team members rank among the best in the national climbing circuit or have even made it into the National Team. On top of that, München-Oberland stages the annual “Munich City Championships” – one of the biggest and most favored climbing competitions in Germany with several hundred competitors.
DAV climbing center Thalkirchen
This site is massive: With more than 4500m² of climbing faces it is the biggest artificial climbing site in the world and has established itself as one of the major climbing halls in Germany. Very popular and always crowded, the site offers enough lines for even the maddest of climbers and guarantees for the real pump with a maximum height of 18 meters and endless roof climbing. In the summer or even on mild winter days, the outdoor area is the place to be – and don`t miss the legendary concrete bouldering at the outdoor bouldering site!
