How to behave in the National Park

Rules and regulations

Due to several million visitors each year, some basic rules for this nature paradise have to be set in order to guarantee that others will be able to enjoy the unimpaired mountain wilderness in the future. Please visit one of our information centres in order to obtain detailed information on this matter. Please note that we consider major violations against the National Park's rules as an offence which will be punished accordingly.

Rubbish

More than 1,000 bags of litter have to be collected each year alongside the routes in the National Park. Please use the rubbish and recycling bins at the end of your trip.

Do not remove anything from the Park. Each animal and each plant has its place in the nutrient cycle of the nature reserve. This particularly applies to berries and mushrooms.

Do not light fires in the National Park! Fire will spread rapidly even in colder weather conditions. Each year precious areas are destroyed by fire.

Please keep your dog on a leash. Your loyal companion may be tempted if it smells a young deer or lynx. Spare the animals the stress and your dog the danger of disappearing in a deep granite chasm.

Please be as quiet as possible. By doing so, your chance to see wild animals will rise.

Camping in the Park is prohibited. Please use official camp sites.

On most of the National Park's route you can go cycling and mountain cycling at your own risk. Routes that are used by too many hikers are closed for cyclists. Please pay attention to the signs. Please always keep in mind that hikers take priority in any case!
