For users 

  1. Presented tours for hiking, walking, cycling or cycling races, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, ski or snowshoe tours, etc. are gratuitous tour suggestions that are exclusively provided as non-binding information. We do not intend to negotiate a contract with the users of this website. The usage of the provided data does not constitute a contract with us.
    Data may only be used for private purposes; commercial usage of any kind is prohibited. Offering the data on commercially operated websites, sharing platforms, etc. or developing commercial products from these is especially prohibited. Users do not obtain the rights to the respective data by downloading.
    The submitted tour suggestions have been collected with utmost care; nonetheless, we do not assume any liability for the correctness and completeness of the provided information.
    We point out that all tour suggestions or the data and information associated with these contained in this website have not been submitted by us but by third persons (Section 16 of the ECA). We have no influence on whether the information provided within this website (distance, difficulty, elevation gain, description, etc.) is authentic, correct and complete. We do not check these third-party contents. For this reason, we do not assume any liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information.
    Structural measures or other influences (e.g. mudslides and landslides or the like) can lead to temporary or permanent route changes (e.g. breaking away of a bridge or the like, etc.). Parts of the route or the entire route may no longer be driveable.
    Data usage as well as using (driving, walking, riding, etc.) the suggested tours or trail networks is undertaken at one’s own risk and on one’s own responsibility. The user is especially responsible for route selection, orientation in the terrain, observance of traffic regulations, equipment and gear for tours stated under item 1 (e.g. bicycle equipment, etc.), wearing a helmet, assessment of personal abilities, hazard assessment and maintaining an appropriate speed. We exclude liabilities of any kind for damages incurred by using the suggested tours, in particular due to accidents. 
  2. Some tours include streets with normal traffic. Please note that the usage of streets poses an increased danger potential, which can be avoided with caution and proper assessment and implementation of one’s own abilities. Therefore, approach an unknown tour slowly and cautiously. Always be mindful of possible dangers, and consistently monitor traffic. Do not depart from described routes.
    Any usage of private streets, in particular forestry and agricultural roads may be subject to legal restrictions that must be observed and followed.
    Road traffic regulations apply. Every user (e.g. cyclist, motorbiker) is independently responsible for the observance of these rules, the proper condition and adequate equipment of his bicycle/vehicle (lighting, brakes, etc.). Furthermore, each user is independently responsible for maintaining a speed that is appropriate to the situation and his own abilities and must keep an adequate distance to the person ahead. We expressly recommend to always ride by line of sight, wear a helmet and reflective clothing (or the like) as well as use permissible bicycle lighting.
  3. All tours require users to be in very good physical condition and prepare extensively. We strongly recommend only undertaking these tours in a state of optimal health.
    We also recommend taking out an accident and liability insurance. Use a bicycle computer that displays the daily kilometres and is calibrated to the front wheel.
  4. We do not assume responsibility for the contents of external Internet pages; we are especially not liable for any contents or statements on these pages. Furthermore, we have no influence on the design and content of these pages to/from which users can navigate from/to via hyperlinks. We do not continuously check pages to/from which users can navigate from/to via hyperlinks. We also do not appropriate the content of pages to/from which users can navigate from/to via hyperlinks. 
  5. Specifically for mountain bikers – Fair play rules:
    Mountain biking is one of the most beautiful recreational outdoor activities. On mountain bike tours, cyclists can experience mountains, lakes, alpine pastures and cabins in a whole new way. Some fair play rules apply for mountain biking in the forest in order to avoid conflicts:
  • Pedestrians take precedence: We are considerate and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. We ring the bicycle bell and slowly pass pedestrians in case of encounters. In any case, we avoid heavily trafficked paths. Environmental consciousness: We do not leave any waste behind.
  •  Riding by half the line of sight: We ride with controlled speed and are ready to brake at half the line of sight especially in curves because obstacles must be expected at any time. Road damage, rocks, branches, interspersed wood, grazing animals, cattle guards, gates, forestry tractors, vehicles of authorised personnel are hazards that we must be prepared for.
  • "Don't drink and drive!" ‘No alcohol’ also applies to mountain biking. Be considerate at service areas (bicycle rack usage, dirty shoes or clothing)
  • Performing first aid is obligatory!
  • Marked routes, riding bans and route closures: Stay within marked routes, and do not cross barriers; accept that these routes are primarily intended for agricultural and forestry use!
  • Route closures are unavoidable at times and in your best interest. Cycling off-route and outside of approved times is punishable by law and makes us illegal bikers.
  • We are guests in the forest and should therefore also act as guests by being mindful of forestry personnel and hunters. Cell phones and music players are taboo while mountain biking! Biking requires your full attention.
  • Avoid making unnecessary noise. We only ride in broad daylight in order to be considerate of free-ranging animals. We always ride with a helmet (also when going uphill)! Take emergency supplies along: We always carry a repair kit and bandages.
  • Realistic self-assessment: We do not overextend ourselves while riding in regard to conditioning. Take the degree of difficulty of the route into account and accurately assess your experience level and ability as a biker (brakes, bells, lighting)! Close pasture gates: We approach grazing animals at walking speed and close all pasture gates after passing through. We avoid startling animals resulting in flight and panic responses. Observing these simple rules ensures that nothing stands in the way of our enjoyment and athletic challenges that await us on the mountain and in the forest!
  • Road traffic regulations: We follow road traffic regulations that apply on all mountain biking routes. Our bicycles must be in a technically flawless condition in accordance with road traffic regulations, i.e. proper brakes, bells, lighting. We check and maintain our mountain bikes regularly.
