Peter Thoelen und Helmut Steininger
During a week-long mountain hike, brand ambassadors Peter Thoelen and Helmut Steininger climbed the highest summit in Kilimanjaro, the 5895 metre-high Uhuru Peak, also known as "the Roof of Africa".
Despite being well prepared, the hike was definitely tough. "The last part of the climb on the Rongai route to the Uhuru Peak in particular required us to summon our last reserves of energy," says Helmut Steininger. The pair were rewarded with a magnificent view of the glaciers and the landscape at sunrise. Their Schüco shirts didn't make it home with them though. "We gave them to our guides Salim and Goda as gifts. The two Africans are now brand ambassadors, wearing them during the transfer between Marangu Gate and Kibo. Schüco is TOP in Africa!"
