Forecast

An area of high pressure will build over the Alps on Tuesday and break up the last of the morning clouds. The sun will then quickly gain the upper hand and bring a nice day.

Tendency

On Wednesday this strong area of high pressure will slowly drift eastwards. With a southerly flow bringing more humid air from the Mediterranean, the weather will become more sultry, with the risk of thunderstorms during the second half of the day also increasing.

Klassifizierung der Wanderwege

Just so you know what to expect

Our classifications will tell you how difficult or easy each of our hiking routes are, using different colours to denote different levels of difficulty. All of our routes are coloured differently in our online map. Blue means easy, red intermediate, and black stands for difficult tours. Signs along each route are also colour-coded, with red again meaning intermediate and black denoting difficult hikes which are only recommended for experienced hikers with a head for heights.  

It's always best to only choose tours with which you and your companions are comfortable, as there are numerous risks in the Alps which should never be underestimated. Choosing the perfect level of difficulty for your hike will ensure many beautiful memories.  

Features of Routes Marked Red: 

  • Predominantly narrow, often steep routes 
  • Short, exposed areas 
  • Short, secured sections (e.g., with safety ropes) 

Features of Routes Marked Black: 

  • Narrow and often steep routes 
  • Many secure and exposed sections 
  • Possibility of simple climbs, requiring usage of hands 
  • Sure-footedness and a head for heights are required 

The Austrian Alpine Club uses the following criteria to classify routes (source: Austrian Alpine Club website, 25th April 2018): 

  • Trail width, gradient ratios, danger of falls 
  • Predominance of safety ropes 
  • Necessity of use of hands 
  • Predominance and difficulty of climbing sections 
  • Demands on coordinative skills (difficulty level of each route) 

Route lengths and typical risks that are common in the alpine region are not relevant to the classification system. These typical risks could include rock falls, avalanches and altitude differences. The required equipment is the responsibility of the hiker and is also not included in the classifications.
