Safety information

Achten Sie auf gutes Schuhwerk. Winterstiefel mit gutem Profil oder mit Schneekrallen sind besonders geeignet. Ziehen Sie sich der Witterung entsprechend an. Nehmen Sie für den Notfall ein Handy mit. Benutzen Sie Wanderstöcke, damit finden Sie sicheren Halt auf Schnee und Eis. Bedenken Sie, dass sich die Gehdauer auf Schnee verlängern kann. An Sonnenhängen kann es vereiste Stellen geben.
