Sustainability at heart

For the love of nature

What if there were no more bees? If we could no longer climb mountains? Or if nothing grew in the earth? A mindful and respectful approach to our habitat concerns us all - and resonates in our daily activities. If we act carefully and respectfully, this unique landscape will be preserved for future generations. You can do your bit too. We'll show you how.

We are also taking part in CleanUpDays - check out this great project!

Tips for treating nature and other living creatures with respect:
  • Planning: I prepare for the tours by paying attention to the weather forecast, carrying the right equipment, wearing sturdy shoes and suitable clothing and taking plenty of fluids with me.
  • Mobility: I use public transport whenever possible.
  • Parking: I park my vehicle in designated car parks without exception, never in meadows or at the side of the road.
  • Exercise in nature: I only walk on designated hiking or cycling trails.
  • Private property: I respect the private property of others. This also includes the woods, meadows and fields adjacent to the paths.
  • Together on the trail: I behave considerately and responsibly towards others and nature.
  • Managed huts: I am patient with the hosts of mountain huts and refuges. I consume something when using the toilets.
  • Noise: I adjust my volume to the tranquillity of nature and avoid unnecessary noise.
  • Preservation of flora: I do not pick flowers, berries, mushrooms or other plants.
  • Fences: By closing fences, I help to protect grazing livestock.
  • Grazing livestock/wild animals: I respect the animals' habitat by keeping my distance and walking past them quietly.
  • Dogs: I always keep my dog on a lead and have a muzzle for emergencies.
  • Fire: I don't light fires, they are forbidden.
  • Rubbish: I dispose of all rubbish properly or take it home with me.

  • Protects the environment: using tap water avoids packaging and transport routes.
  • Is a limited resource: Careful use prevents unnecessary consumption.

Zero Waste
Less waste - more nature!

Do you actually know what a plastic bottle lying around causes in nature?

A lot! Due to the climatic conditions in our mountain landscape, waste decomposition processes are slowed down and some waste is not decomposed at all. People and animals can be injured by waste lying around. The best waste is that which is not produced at all!

You can do this:

  • Don't leave anything lying around in nature
  • Avoid plastic and take your own rubbish home with you
  • Only pack the essentials in your rucksack
  • Collect rubbish lying around
  • Use public transport
  • Separate and dispose of rubbish correctly
