The 6 rules of hiking in the mountains


Plan every hike carefully!


Tell relatives, friends, the mountain hut owner or the hotel about your hike. Report back when you arrive at your destination!


Make sure you have suitable and full equipment.


Constantly observe the weather developments.

Never alone

Never go hiking in the mountains alone.

Turn back in case of doubt

Keep to this principle!

For your safety

Footwear suitable for mountains is necessary on all described hikes. Hiking with children requires particularly careful planning. On steep paths, children should be secured with a rope.

Protecting the mountains
