Off to the mountains! Let’s go!

Mountaineering tips

Even mountaineering needs to be learned. We tell you what you should pay attention to when you set off on your journey.


Mountaineering from our nature hotel in Tyrol doesn’t just mean simply walking in steep terrain. There is much more to mountaineering, therefore our hotel Post Vent is geared to the needs of mountaineers. Our service also includes valuable tips, which we reveal to you here.

Tip 1: Preparation is vital. Ask yourself in advance Am I fit enough? Do I have enough stamina? What will the weather be like? 

Tip 2: Suitable footwear is essential. Trainers are unsuitable on the mountains. Sturdy shoes with good soles are necessary.

Tip 3: I pack my rucksack and take with me… sun cream, some headgear, a small first aid kit, a big bottle, and something to eat.

Tip 4: Time for a break. Is your stomach growling and your feet feeling heavy? Then it is high time for a break. Regular eating and drinking are important to keep your circulation going.

Tip 5: Do not overestimate yourself! Your mind is willing, but your body cannot keep up. You don’t have to prove anything to anyone on the mountain – you can turn back.

Want to be on the safe side? Then trust our experienced mountain guides, who are happy to accompany you and show you the most fantastic places in the Ötztal Alps.
