Rediscover the Alps

Photo: schoeband, CC BY-NC-ND 2.0

When we talk about the mountains, it’s the Alps that we mean. When we think of untouched nature and tranquillity, we have their images in mind. And when we want to experience a truly great adventure, they are both the protagonist and the backdrop—all at the same time. The Alps are our mountains, and they’re built on dreams and memories. Almost everyone has an anecdote about them, about weather and paths and silence and effort. About idyll and seclusion—as if diving into another world.

Only, is this picture true? Isn't there much more to see than what we know from pictures and holidays? What's waiting out there, between the summit and the valley? What experiences, trails and encounters? What is the mountain culture like in other countries? Through these Collections, we seek to inspire you. To encourage you to set out again without any problems, completely free of preconceptions—and to help you rediscover the Alps, whatever that means for you.

Almost everyone has an anecdote about them, about weather and paths and silence and effort.

Safety In The Mountains

Weather

Just like a hearty breakfast, checking the weather forecast is an important part of your daily mountain morning routine. At high altitudes, you may experience heat, rain, high winds and even snow — all in the same day. When packing, check the weather and take equipment for every possible outcome.

Dangers

Rough terrain, narrow and steep paths, falling rocks – all are risks when traversing the mountains and along the coast. Thorough preparation, suitable equipment and an honest evaluation of your own skills are key to staying safe. If you don’t have any experience in certain environments, it's best to bring someone who does.

Respect

Whether you are on a popular trail or off the beaten path, make sure to show respect toward other people and the environment. Beware of other people around – below steep slopes there are often other trails, so don't kick down any rocks. Always leave a place as you found it and show respect for your companions, people you meet and the environment.

Emergency Numbers

Research and keeo the phone number of the local mountain rescue on hand. Make sure you always have some battery left on your mobile device and be cognisant of where you are at all times so you can accurately communicate your location in case of an emergency.

  • Call 999 and ask to be put through to mountain rescue in case of an emergency. Mountain rescue Germany: 112
  • Mountain rescue Austria: 140
  • Mountain rescue Italy: 118

Equipment Basics

No matter where your journey will take you, these are some basic supplies you should always have with you:

  • Rain jacket
  • Pocketknife
  • Spork
  • Headlamp
  • First aid kit (incl. medicine & tweezers)
  • Some duct tape
  • Pen & Paper
  • komoot app (of course!)
