Here you will find tips and advice on how to conquer the mountains of the Alpenregion Vorarlberg safely and without worry.
Plan your hike
Learn about the length and difficulty of your route and inform your relatives or hosts about your destination.
Sturdy shoes, warm clothing, provisions, sunglasses, sunscreen, backpack, rain cover, hiking map, mobile phone for emergencies etc.
Current weather report
The weather in the mountains is not always predictable. With a good diagnosis and tips from the locals you prevent wet surprises.
Start early in the morning and plan for some buffer time. This ensures your safe return before dark.
Evaluate yourself objectively. The weakest of the group should decide the pace! Do not overstrain and take enough breaks - it should be fun after all!
Drink lots of water! But be careful with alcohol - it limits the performance.
Our trails are marked. Great thing! Always follow the marking and when in doubt always reverse in time.
Respect your limits
Meet nature with respect. Avoid noise and waste! Observe nature conservation laws! The next hiker will thank you! >>Respect your limits
Alright? Well then have fun on your next hike or mountain tour!
All trails are marked according to the Vorarlberg hiking trails concept and divided into three levels of difficulty.
The location number (see "Vorarlberger Wanderwege Standortnr." on the picture) can save lives!
The location number is recorded at the rescue and fire station. In an emergency the exact location of the casualty can be determined. Thus quick help is guaranteed.
