Safety in the Tyrolean mountains

Hike safely and without detours through the Kaunertal mountains - the uniform signage based on the Tyrolean mountain path concept makes it easy for you to find the right path.

Signposts are the main element of signage for hiking and mountain trails. In order to prevent a "forest of signs" in nature, the number of signposts is kept as low as possible. In principle, signposts are attached to every important intersection, junction or fork in the road. These signposts are yellow and contain destination, walking time and route number. In addition, there is a red dot for moderately difficult trails and a black dot for difficult mountain trails.

Prefer something tangible? Various hiking maps can be purchased from the tourist offices in Feichten and Fendels as well as in the Kaunergrat Nature Park House. These not only contain all the important data and facts about the hiking trails and bike tours, but also detailed directions.
