Rules of conduct in nature

  • We leave nothing in nature and dispose of our garbage expertly.
  • We avoid disturbances in the peace and take care of flora and fauna.
  • We stay on the marked trails.
  • We leash our beloved four-legged friend to protect the other forest dwellers.
  • We observe the smoking ban and do not light a fire.
  • We only collect as much of berries and mushrooms as we need for ourselves.
  • We preserve the nature and admire flowers in the countryside rather than withered at home.
  • We pay attention to any information such as forestry work or locks and observe these.
