Thomas Huber (born 18 November 1966 in Palling, Bavaria), is a German climber and mountaineer. He lives in Berchtesgaden with his family. His brother and climbing partner is Alexander Huber. The brothers were the subject of the 2007 film To the Limit.
When they were still young Thomas Huber and his two siblings were taken into the mountains by their father, himself a noted climber known for early fast ascents of now classic climbs.
