However, numerous hikes offer a surprisingly high number of meters in altitude that have to be conquered. Nevertheless, you will also find plenty of really gentle tours to relax and recharge your batteries. A special feature of the region is also the possibility to complete extended hikes and trail runs very early in the year, since due to the moderate altitude and mild temperatures, snow-free conditions can be expected on the hiking trails already in the early months.
