Safe Alpine Pastures

Ten rules of conduct for ‘Safe Hiking’ in Upper Austrian alpine pastures and grazing areas.

In close cooperation, the Federal Ministry of Agriculture, Regions and Tourism, the Provincial Chamber of Agriculture of Austria, the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Alpine Association have set up 10 rules of conduct for the correct behaviour when grazing cows are encountered in Austria’s alpine pastures. In 2019, the Province of Upper Austria, together with the Upper Austrian Economic Chamber and Upper Austria’s Chamber of Agriculture as well as the alpine clubs and tourism, revised and reissued these rules for the Upper Austrian region.
