    Karl Maria Herrligkoffer - Visionär und Wegbegleiter

    Kathrin Denk (2016)

    Karl Maria Herrligkoffer is regarded as the most important German organizer of eight-thousand-meter expeditions after the Second World War - Karl Maria Herrligkoffer (1916-1991). The Munich doctor and psychologist made it possible for mountaineers such as Hermann Buhl, Anderl Mannhardt, Toni Kinshofer, Reinhold Messner, Michl Dacher, Sigi Hupfauer, Hans Engl and many others to realize their dream of climbing eight-thousanders. However, several times after the successes on the mountain, there were disputes between the expedition leader and individual participants. Above all, the bitter dispute with Reinhold Messner after the Nanga-Parbat-Expedition in 1970, during which Günther Messner had died, caused Herrligkoffer a considerable damage to his image.

    Deutsche Diamir Expedition

    Deutsche Diamir Expedition

    Karl Maria Herrligkoffer (1962)

    The film documents the conquest of the Diamir face of Nanga Parbat by a German expedition. With a long march of approach, overcoming difficulties of all kinds and degrees, the climbers slowly advance up to 7200 meters above sea level. After being blocked for a day and a night because of the bad weather conditions, they attacked the summit, which they managed to conquer on 22 June 1962. Unfortunately, on the next day, on the way back, a member of the expedition crashes, resulting in a fatal injury to the head. Two other mountaineers, hit by freezing, were barely saved.
