“Walks for all abilities - read this advice”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

The walks here are well signposted with times that assume a reasonable level of fitness, maps show either a continuous red line (a trail OK for biking), a dashed red line (lake district style path) and a dotted line (you'll need to use your hands as well) and a ladder symbol (rock climbing gear needed). Trails are marked with red and white painted marks and red dots and are numbered so in most conditions its very difficult to get lost. There are cafe's and bars (Hutte) all over the place so with a little planning you don't need to carry much food and can enjoy a meal with beer at almost any altitude and prices are reasonable seeing as someone (or someone in a helicopter) has to cart all that beer up the mountain.
Warning - there are several popular brands of map, Freytag & Berndt are popular but the contour lines are shown at 100m intervals with no heights marked on the contour lines and no relief shading either so what might look like an Alpine Meadow in fact turns out to be a near vertical slope of 1000m + !
The Kompass 1 :25000 and 1:50000 maps are far better for visualising the terrain and more accurate, they are on sale widely and the map for this area includes an english language booklet as well.

“Great hiking at all levels”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

Stunning mountain views on all sides and trails for all fitness levels. Small mountain huts are dotted along the trails and most serve excellent meals at a bargain price, so no need to bring your lunch.

“Penken”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

If you go with kids who want play areas and less walking, recommend you take the cable car to Penkne from Finkenberg

“great walking area”

clearly marked trails which show destination and approx length of time for walking. Lots of lifts and great views whether on the mountain top or in the valleys.
