About us

We do what we do best and have stayed true to our focus as a pure play internet retailer.
We do what we do best and have stayed true to our focus as a pure play internet retailer.

It all started in 2006, with two founders, a dog, a passion for climbing and a promising idea. With these simple ingredients, Bergfreunde.de, an online dealer for mountaineering equipment, was born and set up shop on the site of a former textile factory in Kirchentellinsfurt near Tübingen. Over the years, we have managed to stay true to this concept and have become one of Europe's leading online mountain sports retailers. Today, we have more than 250 employees committed to providing the best possible shopping experience for mountain sports and outdoor enthusiasts.

Alpinetrek.co.uk

We want all our customers to have the best possible experience shopping with us. Feedback from our UK customers suggested that Alpinetrek better communicates to them our commitment to being a premium outdoor speciality retailer selling high quality climbing and mountaineering gear who really stands for advocacy, competence and perfect service.

The shop continues to operate from Germany and it shares the same extensive range of climbing and mountain sports products as the German shop. Of course this means that it also benefits from being managed by the same tried and tested German systems that have driven the first class service, great prices and efficient shipping over the years. After all it is this knowledge and experience, developed from our work in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, that makes our company so effective.
