Forecast

High „Ilonka“ ist dominating Central European weather, and the maps show no male low that could dispute its supremacy! Wednesday will thus bring us fantastic weather! The day will start out cool, but then the February sun will prove its mettle and ensure values rise to pleasant highs in the afternoon.

Tendency

Little change is expected for Thursday. On Friday, a weather front will pass over our region bringing cooler maritime air and clouds to our region. On Saturday, however, we will see a return to sunny high pressure weather!

Safety in the Mountains

Your Safety is Important to Us

The mountains are an awe-inspiring backdrop full of monumental sights and experiences. The dangers posed by the mountains are part of this and should never be underestimated. Those who take care and are prepared with the correct equipment and clothing will have a wonderful experience. But safety comes first. We've put together some tips for you. 

Plan Your Tour Thoroughly

Don't just simply prepare for your tour at home. You should also be ready to make last minute changes upon arrival. Especially regarding fluctuations in the weather or poor forecasts.

Prepare for Changeable Weather

Mountain weather is temperamental. It is important to remember this when planning a hike. You should always have rain protection and cold-weather gear with you. A map is also a must in case you accidentally stray from the trail.

Good Footwear is a Must

Make sure you are wearing the correct footwear before entering alpine terrain. Sandals, flip-flops, high heels and smooth soles are not recommended! Wear strong walking boots or hiking shoes with tough soles and good tread. Also important: breathable, loose clothing and having the right equipment in your backpack. 

Listen to the Locals

Listen to what the locals have to say and heed their advice. If, for example, the people working at a mountain hut tell you that it is not possible to continue on your chosen route, listen to them. The landlords at mountain huts are local experts who spend most of their time in the mountains and know the area very well.

Listen to Your Body

It is extremely important to make sure you drink enough water and take plenty of breaks along the way. Tiredness and thirstiness can affect your sure-footedness, orientation and concentration. Conserve your energy for the way back.  

Avoid Excessive Alcohol during breaks

Beer, schnapps and other delights served at mountain huts are especially tempting after a challenging hike. But beware, too much alcohol will affect your safety on the way back! Please drink in moderation to avoid impairing your balance, concentration and sure-footedness.

Hiking with Dogs

Safe hiking fun for you and your four-legged friend.
