The Kreuzberg Rehabilitation Centre on the Roof of Africa

In September 2012 Maximilian Werding and his friend Jean-Claude flew to Tanzania and climbed 3 high mountains within 14 days. For acclimatisation they first climbed Little Meru 3820 m, then Mount Meru 4566 m and 1 1/2 days later, using the challenging Machame Route, they climbed Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa.
