About us

Nawrocki Alpin was founded in 1995 by Holger Nawrocki in Berlin.

Beginning with a passion for climbing and influenced by extensive tours in the Elbe Sandstone Mountains in the GDR period. 

The eastern part of Germany can also be considered as the birthplace of today's rope access works; it was quite common for industrial climbers to improvise due to a lack of a proper crane and a scaffolding for working at height or in hard to reach places.

In the same year when the company was founded, Holger Nawrocki participated in the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin, an art project lead by Christo and Jeanne-Claude. Since then a constant commitment to the field of art developed, resulting in several projects such as collaborations with the artist Olafur Eliasson, the Fraktale exhibition in the former Palace of the Republic or the Temporary Art Gallery of Berlin (Temporäre Kunsthalle Berlin) 

With the growth of the company, the areas of application and the customer base also expanded. Besides construction work, industry and wind energy projects, Nawrocki Alpin has also been con-stantly involved in spectacular assignments in the advertising, PR and marketing sectors, such as the transformation of the Berliner TV Tower into a giant soccer ball to commemorate the 2006 World Cup.

In 2002 Nawrocki Alpin launched their own certified training courses for rope access and position-ing technology (SZP) and personal fall protection equipment along with the establishment of a training center for industrial climbers.

Since then, the company has developed a wide network of employees and freelancers: industrial climbers, planners, and engineers who efficiently customize, develop and implement complex projects all around Germany, Europe and worldwide.
