Respect the nature!
Respecting nature, getting around, camping, lighting fires and litter-free hiking – once you
have mastered these, you are ready to head outdoors. Take note of the summarized tips for
excursion etiquette and always check the detailed rules of your excursion destination on
the destination page as well.
1. Respect nature – leave no trace in it. Keep your pets on a leash.
2. Use marked trails and follow the rules for different modes of travel. Check the areas and
times in which access is possibly restricted at your destination.
3. Camp only where it is allowed. Do not wash the dishes or yourself directly in a water
body. Follow the rules of wilderness huts.
4. Light your campfire only where it is allowed and use a camping stove where possible. Do
not light a fire when a forest or grass fire warning is in effect.
Nature conservation aims to preserve biodiversity, preserve the natural beauty and
landscape values, support the sustainable use of natural resources and the natural
environment, increase knowledge of nature and general nature hobbies, and promote
natural history
