Your safety during your mountain experience and the protection of our unique nature and environment are particularly important to us. That is why we have put together a few guidance notes and tips:
Basic hiking equipment
|✔||Sturdy shoes – with grip sole|
|✔||First Aid Kit|
|✔||Mobile phone with fully charged battery (please note: network coverage) Winter: Carry your mobile phone close to your body (use inside pocket) as the battery will last longer if it is kept warm|

|✔||Warm clothes, water and wind proof jacket (layered clothing)|
|✔||Sufficient drink and food supplies|
|✔||Hiking map, GPS device etc.|

Behaviour in case of emergencies
|✔||Try to stay calm|
|✔||Call for help: mobile phone, shouting, whistling etc.|
|✔||Tend to injured people, stay at the accident scene but outside any hazardous area|
|✔||Never leave injured people!|
|✔||Behaviour during a storm: avoid exposed and dangerous places (summits, ridges, fixed-rope routes, individual trees etc.) – look for shelter, for example a mountain hut or in the car!|
