Welcome to Montenius Consult

Our aim is it to support our customers in realizing visions on their mountains with creative ideas, technology and know-how from the first planning sketches until the operation of new facilities. We put a large emphasis on retaining the genius loci – the local spirit – and strive to find solutions which enhance the spezial character of each location in keeping with the locality.

In the last ten years the company’s founder, Christoph Schrahe, has completed more than 30 projects for private companies and public authorities in the German low mountain ranges. These included the development of mountain destinations, both on regional and local scale.
