DISCLAIMER for tour tips
KINDLY NOTE THAT:
1. The tours presented for hiking, walking, biking and road biking, mountain biking, motorbiking, horseback riding, climbing, cross-country skiing, and going on skiing and snowshoe tours etc. are to be considered non-paid tour recommendations and only serve as non-binding information. We have no intention of concluding a contract with the users of this website. The utilisation of the data does not lead to the establishment of a contract with us.The data may only be used for private use; any commercial use is prohibited. In particular, it is not permissible to offer the data on commercially run websites, file-sharing platforms etc. or to use it to develop commercial products. Downloading data does not imply that users are granted rights to the data concerned. The tour recommendations posted were created with utmost care; nevertheless, we assume no liability for the correctness and completeness of the information. We point out that neither the tour recommendations included on this website nor the associated data and information were posted by us, but rather by third parties (Art. 16 Austrian E-Commerce Act). We have no influence on whether the details provided (e.g. distance, level of difficulty, change in altitude, description etc.) are authentic, correct and complete. We do not review these third-party contents. For this reason, we assume no liability for the authenticity, correctness and completeness of the information. Construction-related measures or other influences (e.g. landslides and similar occurrences) can lead to temporary or permanent changes in a route (e.g. loss of a bridge and similar occurrences). Such occurrences can lead to part of the route or the entire route becoming impassable. The use of the data as well as undertaking (riding, walking, taking etc.) the recommended tours or using the network of paths occurs at users’ own risk and on their authority. In particular, users themselves are responsible for the choice of route, outdoor orientation, adherence to traffic rules, supplies and equipment for tours listed in Point 1 (e.g. bicycle etc.), wearing a helmet, estimating their own fitness, recognising dangers and maintaining an appropriate velocity. We exclude ourselves from any liability whatsoever for damages, in particular accidents, that occur whilst taking part in the recommended tours.
2.Some of the tours lead over roads with normal traffic conditions. Please observe that there is an increased risk which can be avoided by means of appropriate attention and proper estimation and implementation of one’s own abilities. For this reason, please travel a route that is unfamiliar to you slowly and with special care. Pay constant attention to potential dangers and always observe traffic. Do not leave the routes featured in descriptions. The potential use of private roads, in particular forestry roads and agricultural transport roads, can be subject to legal restrictions, which must be observed and adhered to. The normal traffic rules apply. Each user (e.g. biker, motorbiker) is responsible for adhering to these rules and maintaining his/her bike/vehicle and its equipment (lights, brakes etc.) in good working order. Each user is also responsible for ensuring that he/she rides at a velocity that is appropriate for the conditions and his/her skill level and for maintaining sufficient distance to the rider in front. We explicitly recommend adjusting velocity to correspond to the respective field of vision, wearing a helmet, using reflective clothing (or similar) and employing bicycle lights in line with regulations.
3.Each tour requires good physical fitness as well as detailed planning. We explicitly recommend only taking the tours in the case of optimal healthiness. We recommend that you conclude an accident and liability insurance policy. Use an onboard computer that displays the respective kilometres travelled per day and is calibrated for the front wheel.
4.Special for mountain bikers – Fair-play rules: Mountain biking is one of the most wonderful outdoor leisure-time activities. Whilst biking or on a mountain biking tour, mountains and lakes, meadows and cabins are re-discovered in new ways. A couple of rules for fair play in the forest help to avoid conflicts whilst mountain biking.
a.Pedestrians have the right of way: We are accommodating and friendly to pedestrians and hikers. Upon encountering these fellow travellers, we alert them by using the bicycle bell and slowly overtake them. We avoid paths with heavy pedestrian traffic altogether. Take nature into account: We do not leave refuse behind.
b.The braking distance should be half of the total distance visible: We ride at a controlled pace, are ready to brake and maintain a braking distance half as long as the total distance visible, especially in curves, because we always have to count on obstacles on the path. Damage to the path, stones, branches, wood piles, grazing livestock, cattle grids, barriers, tractor-type forestry machines and authorised vehicles pose dangers that we need to be ready for.
c.Don’t drink and drive!: Do not drink alcohol when mountain biking. Take care at stop-off points (dealing with bike racks, dirty shoes or clothing). It is obligatory to provide first aid!
d.Marked routes, closed paths and blockades: Keep to the marked routes, observe the blockades and accept that these roads are primarily for agricultural and forestry use! Blockades can often not be avoided and are in your own interest. Biking beyond the intended path and outside of opening times is punishable and turns us into illegal bikers.
e.We are guests in the forest and behave accordingly, including vis-à-vis forestry and hunting staff. Whilst mountain biking, mobile telephones and music players are forbidden! Biking requires your full attention.
f.Avoid unnecessary noise. Out of consideration to the animals living in the wild, we only bike during full daylight. As a principle, we always wear our helmet (even when riding uphill)! Don’t forget emergency supplies: We always have a repair set and bandages along.
g.Don’t overestimate your skills: We should not overdo it when it comes to biking technique and physical fitness. Take the level of difficulty posed by the route into consideration and make a precise estimate of your experience and skills as a biker (braking, bell, lights)!
h.Close gates: We approach grazing livestock at a walking pace and close every gate behind us. We should avoid causing escape and panic reactions in the animals. Nothing stands in the way of the fun and athletic challenge in the mountains and forests!
i.Traffic rules: The general traffic rules (StVO) apply for all the mountain biking routes and we adhere to them. Our bike therefore needs to be in perfect technical condition and equipped in line with the traffic rules, including brakes, a bell and lights. We inspect and service our mountain bikes regularly anyway.

Use of Facebook-Plugins
On this website, plugins of the social network – operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) and recognisable by the Facebook logo (white “f” on a blue square or symbol with “thumbs up”) or marked with “Facebook social plugin” – also visible at http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/.
If you access pages of our Internet presence that have such plugins and if your browser is configured accordingly, a connection is established with the Facebook servers and the plugin appears on the Internet site via a notification to your browser. By doing so, information is sent to the Facebook servers about which of our webpages you have visited. If you are logged onto Facebook as a member, Facebook attributes this information to your personal Facebook user account. Upon using the plugin functions (e.g. by clicking on the “Like” button or entering a comment), this information is attributed to your Facebook account.
We have no influence on the amount of data that Facebook collects with the help of this this plugin. As far as we are informed, Facebook received the information that you have visited the corresponding page of our Internet presence by means of embedding plugins. By pressing the “Like” button or entering a comment, the corresponding information is sent by your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is still possible that Facebook finds out and saves your IP address. More information about the collection and use of data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and ways to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection information of Facebook at www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If you are a member of Facebook and want to prevent the collection and attribution of your data saved by Facebook, you have to log off of Facebook before visiting our Internet presence; it is not sufficent to simply close the page. A further possibility is blocking Facebook social plugins with add-ons for your browser, e.g. using the “Facebook Blocker” at http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/.
Use of the „+1“-Buttons
This website uses the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The button can be recognised by the “+1” symbol on a white or coloured background. If you access a website of our Internet presence that has such a button, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Google. The contents of the “+1” button are transferred from Google directly to your browser, which embeds it in the website. We therefore have no influence on the amount of data that Google collects with this button, but we assume that your IP address is recorded. The purpose and amount of data collection and further processing and use of the data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and configuration possibilities to protect your privacy are available in Google’s data protection information regarding the “+1” button: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html. If you are a Google Plus member and do not want Google to collect data on you via our Internet presence, you have to log off of Google Plus before visiting our Internet presence.
