Christian "Greis"
Born 1969 in Munich, Bavaria (Germany).
Member of the board of the Giant Mountains’ tourism association ZPK.
He came to the Giant Mountains as an entrepreneur and biker in 2001. Asked, "What’s a Bavarian doing in the Giant Mountains?" he will simply answer: "Well, yes, I just like it here". He used to be amateur street-biker in his younger days and recently has rediscovered biking after a long break. But his time it’s the MTB. His bike is top notch, not least because it has to save on his excess weight...
He thinks of everything, carries anything in his rucksack that might come in handy on the road, and has every Giant Mountain-tour stored in his head and legs. The Giant Mountains and tourism are his passion. He will give everything to have his guests enjoy their holidays and the local tours.
Christian speaks German, English and some Czech and Greek.
