Hiking maps and free general maps are available in the information offices of the Ausseerland.
Please be sure to wear sturdy shoes, if possible with slip protection.
Proper backpacking makes a lot of things easier:
Pack heavy things first.
The water bottle should always be within easy reach in a side pocket.
All things that are often needed, such as sunglasses, camera or hiking map, belong on top.
An emergency kit including blister plaster belongs in every backpack and a clothing according to the "onion system" is always recommended
