“This all-round talent is a constant companion for hikers: puddle suits – cosy, warm and dirt-loving.”

On the go Wear the right clothing
During the day, hiking temperatures are generally quite pleasant – not too hot and not too cold. Things can become unpleasant if the sun disappears behind clouds or a cold wind kicks up on a mountain. The rule of thumb here is: Apply the layering principle for both big and small hikers. When children go hiking, they usually get rather warm because they move much more as a result of their short legs and their detours of discovery. Sometimes, however, children forget that they are cold. You should always check with them and make sure that you have taken along enough extra clothing for them.
