Basic structure of our map

The backbone of our map consists of contour lines at intervals of 250 metres. Thus, the map looks vivid and nicely illustrates the topography of the Alps. Besides, in order to give reference points, we show the important towns, roads, rivers and mountains, as well as the boundaries of the eight Alpine countries and their regions.

1001 Mountains of the Alps

Our map depicts the most important mountains in the Alps.

We first selected the geographically most prominent mountains. All mountains in the Alps with a prominence of at least 500 metres are included, totalling 919 mountains and three height twins, including Montblanc, Matterhorn, Grossglockner, and Zugspitze. As the prominence describes a mountain in the context of its environment, these mountains are equally distributed throughout the Alps.

Our impression of the mountains is determined by not only the geography but also the shape, the rock, and the available view of the mountain. Therefore, we included 79 special mountains of the Alps, which, despite lower prominence, shape our impression of the Alps and the mountains in it. A few examples are Eiger, Grosser Mythen, and High Weisse. The selection of these mountains is partly subjective, but we have made sure that the whole Alpine region is equally represented. We have taken the liberty to add some landmarks that are not separate mountains in common geographical definition, but that nevertheless characterize the Alps because of their distinctive shape.

Our data

We are thankful to renowned Alpine explorers and mountain chroniclers Eberhard Jurgalski and Oliver Klemm, who provided the information about the mountains.
For each of the 1001 mountains we list the countries, altitude, topographic prominence and Orometric Dominance. You can read more on Orometric Dominance on Eberhard Jurgalski's website and (in the German) Wikipedia.
