Correct Behaviour in the Mountains

The mountains offer recreation, but also some dangers: If you know and avoid them, you can enjoy the day to the full

"It is not the mountain that you conquer, but your own self.", as Edmund Hillary (1919-2008), the first climber of Mount Everest, already knew. And also in South Tyrol's mountains, freedom seems boundless. With the consideration of a few rules, also in absolute safety:


  • Pay attention to the weather and proper clothing
  • Do not light fires, they can get out of control
  • Inform yourself about the difficulty of the hike
  • Do not leave the marked paths
  • Inform someone where you are hiking to
  • Take a first aid kit and the EU Emergency Number 112 with you

Dealing with nature:

  • Respect nature and take rubbish back home
  • Don't pick flowers, many of them are protected
  • Don't be noisy, the animals will thank you for it
  • Respect wildlife and their habitat, including cows in the pastures

Hiking with children:

  • Choose easy paths without precipices and steep sections
  • Find out if refuges are open (refreshments)
  • Take enough water and sun cream with you
  • Plan to take breaks (the indicated time can be considerably longer)
