The Hocheisspitze is a 2,523 m high mountain in the Berchtesgaden Alps, over which the border between Germany and Austria runs. It is also the highest mountain in the eponymous Hocheis Group that belongs to the Hochkalter Massif. The first reported ascent of the Hocheisspitze was by Hermann von Barth on 6 September 1868, although it is suspected that the mountain had been climbed much earlier.

In winter ski mountaineers undertake ski tours of the...
