Turn back in good time if the weather deteriorates. If you get caught in a thunderstorm, stay away from individual trees. Wait out the storm, if possible in a crouching position.
Stay on marked trails and remember to close pasture fences.In case of emergency, keep calm and call the mountain rescue on 140. If you have no reception, take out the sim card and dial 112.
If you encounter cows: It is best to pass above the herd with at least 50 meters distance. Stay calm, don't make any frantic movements and don't run away. Do not imitate cow sounds and do not try to pet the animals. A stick and loud shouting can often make the animals turn back in an emergency.
If you are a dog owner: Clarify before the hike if you have to cross a pasture. Keep your dog on a leash and make sure he stays calm. If a cow attacks, let the dog off the leash immediately. Never pick him up to defend him.
Garbage on meadows and paths can not smell mountain and valley. Please take it with you. Agriculture and forestry are important partners for Berg und Tal. They allow you to walk and drive on many of their paths. Be aware that only good cooperation will guarantee your recreational enjoyment in the future.
Follow the signposted path to the Capuchin monastery, which has existed since 1711. Here it is worth taking a short detour inside the church and to the story square outside, before you continue along the slightly sloping path to the road to Donnersbach, cross it and after about 100 meters turn left uphill through a short section of forest to the Gumpenstein Research Institute and further to the Raumberg school. Continue through the village of Raumberg, past the small chapel, where after about 200m the asphalt path turns into a gravel path. Now the path goes slightly uphill again. At the next fork in the road, keep to the right and, just before the barrier, turn right again into the forest to the themed nature trail. Here you can learn a lot about native tree species. At the end of the forest you walk on the asphalt road back to the school and via the research center back to Irdning.
