Hiking tips

Schiestl's hiking tips for the perfect hiking day



Plan route (length of tour, degree of difficulty, way to the starting point and back), information given by our hiking specialists Alf, Christian or by hiking guides, maps, and other route material at the hiking - information area (next to the reception desk). 


For a day tour a rucksack with a capacity of 20-30 liters will be sufficient. Please note, that the rucksack is anatomically shaped, that it has an airflow back system and padded shoulder straps. 

Hiking shoes

Shoes should be broken in prior to the first major tour. It is best to weat special hiking socks. 


Please note:  make sure you will have enough to drink with you or you should stop somewhere and drink something during your tour (at least 2 liters during a day tour), it is best to mix fruit juice with mineral water, no alcoholic beverages during the tour!


Pack small light lunch meals: fruit, muesli bar, sandwich. And in the evening you can treat yourself to a fine, healthy dinner. Hiking snacks are available at our hiking information corner!


Listen to the weather forecast, pack weather proof clothing (rain coat, headgear...) and don't forget the sun cream!

Rough terrain

Hiking or telescopic poles reduce stress that can accelerate in the joints - are available free of charge at the reception desk!

For sporty hikers

Hiking is a health sport: it is okay when you exerts yourself, as long as you don't overexert yourself. In other words: a little sweat won't do any harm, as long as you can still communicate with the others. 


Pack blister plaster and important medication. Bring your mobile phone with the Austrian Alpine emergency number (calling from Austria): 140 European emergency number: 112

What to do when an emergency call has to be made:

  • Follow the advice, given by the control center
  • Do not end the call yourself
  • Do not switch your mobile phone off, make sure you can always be reached by phone
 Large, bright room; bath and toilet separated; very clean rooms and bathroom/toilet; 3/4 pension with a large selection of the breakfast buffet
