Well informed and equipped

Safety first - for a carefree hike, it is important to get well informed in advance. 
Good preparation can save lives in a case of an emergency!

Equipment for the hike

The trails are partly easy to walk, but some parts are also more difficult! In the high mountains, bad weather can quickly lead to temperature drops, precipitation and fog. Therefore rainwear, warm clothing, something to drink and first aid equipment are a must!

  • Backpack

  • Mobile phone (important for emergencies)
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses
  • Water or something else to drink (stay hydrated)
  • Hiking map
  • Headgear, rainwear, spare clothing
  • Good hiking shoes


In case of emergency contact...

... the Mountain Rescue (140) or the pan-European emergency call (112)!
