The weather

Autumn is more than dull and wet, because in autumn the weather is more stable than in the summer months. Beautiful and warm days in autumn are not uncommon.

Inform yourself well about the weather situation before you set off. If the weather forecast is bad, there is a risk not only of rain showers but also of snow.

The right clothes

From cold to warm - autumn has both. Therefore, dress in layers and take dry spare clothes with you so that your body doesn't get cold.

A hat and gloves should also be in your hiking rucksack.

Good footwear

Good hiking boots are the be-all and end-all when hiking. A good grip in wet conditions and snowfields is essential. 

Good hiking boots should also be waterproof, as the ground is wetter in autumn. Pack dry socks in case your feet get wet anyway.
