Charity event in favor of Welthungerhilfe

Clearing cold and thin air: The celebrities are not deterred - after all, it's about a good cause!

In Kühtai, Austria, for the fifth time in a row, there is an altitude difference of 2020 meters in order to do something good. At the "Tirol Cross Mountain", Welthungerhilfe is going on dog sledges through the snow. Organized by actor Till Demtrøder.

Celebrity guests will experience the full winter spectacle for three days: snowshoeing and night tobogganing by torchlight, fondue at the alpine hut, a journey back to the times of Empress Sissi at the elegant dinner Count Christian to Stolberg-Stolberg, relaxation at wellness and - the highlight - the sled dog race. A "touch of Alaska" in the Austrian Alps!

From 5 to 8 December 2013, popular stars slip into their warmest clothes and join forces with around 300 huskies for a good cause. The whole event is dedicated to humanitarian aid - in recent years, a total donation of just under a quarter of a million euros has come together.

Tim Mälzer, Franziska van Almsick, Eva Habermann, Thore Schölermann and Jana Kilka, Hans Sigl, Simone Ballack, Götz Otto, Gedeon Burkhard and Jan Hofer as well as some newcomers on the sledge runners like Sonja Kirchberger, Nina Bott, Jan Kralitschka, Saskia Valencia, Thorsten Nindel, Ingo Nommsen and Nicole Mieth.
