Christian Koschlak Memorial Climbing Path

Christian Koschlak has been active in many different areas. For 20 years he was chairman of the mountain rescue Bad Eisenkappel and lead coordinator of the via ferrata and climbing garden projects in Bad Eisenkappel. He worked as the head of the office of the market town of Eisenkappel-Vellach and for several years as a mountain hiking guide for the cross-border Karawanken-Karavanke UNESCO Global Geopark. Unfortunately, his life ended much too early.
