Hiking tours

Hiking trails (easy)


... paths which are located in the settlement and the adjoining forest area. Hiking trails are in principle signposted walking routes which can generally be accessed during periods when there is no snow and ice; they are intended for pedestrian use. They are wide and have only slight inclines/slopes. Sections of the route which are very steep and where there is a risk of falling are appropriately secured(e.g. railings). No specific knowledge is required to tackle the hiking trails. Sturdy footwear and clothing which suits the weather conditions is all the equipment you need.

Moderate mountain trails


... Red mountain trails are moderately-difficult paths which are comprehensively signposted, predominantly narrow, often steep, and which are partly exposed. There may also be short secured walking or climbing sections.There are sections which might require you to use your hands; these paths require experience of mountaineering when the weather is bad and should only be tackled by mountain climbers who are sure footed, have a good level of endurance and suitable mountaineering equipment.
