Respect your limits
Woods and meadows, rivers and lakes are valuable recreational and rejuvenating spaces. Anyone who is out and about in the natural environment should also consider that nature is also a highly sensitive living space for plants and animals, worthy of protection. Woods in particular have an extremely important additional protective function.
The Wohngemeinschaft Natur Initiative introduced by the Vorarlberger state government informs residents and visitors about treating nature with respect. In this regard we kindly ask that you also observe protected and conservation regions. The most important recommendations: Stay on marked paths and do not leave them.
