Safe to your destination and back
Safety comes first – especially when you are out enjoying the mountains! After an eventful holiday in Kaiserwinkl, you need to return home safely. Here are important tips for your walks and tours – both in summer and winter.
- Make an honest assessment of your own capabilities in selecting the right tour
- Before departing on a mountain tour, you should inform yourself about the weather and route conditions. Ask your accommodation provider or the tourist information offices in Kössen or Walchsee.
- Let your accommodation provider know of the mountain tour route and return time you plan! That will help rescuers get to where they are needed quicker in an emergency
- Never go alone and always take a cellular phone with you
