The aims of the Club are to encourage and to provide opportunities for hiking, mountaineering and other outdoor activities and thereby to infuse the spirit of adventure, create love and interest in nature’s beauty and its flora and fauna among the staff members of International Organizations, their families and friends.
Neither the Club itself nor any of its officers or hike leaders, individually or collectively, can be held responsible for any injury to, and/or disablement or death of a participant during any activity organized by, or on behalf of the Club. Accordingly, participation is at your own risk.
Hikers must be in good health. Hikers with special health conditions or who require special medicine should mention this to the hike leader before the hike begins. We encourage all hikers to have the tick vaccination and keep it current.
The hike leader is entitled to exclude persons from participation at any time before or during the hike (from places where public transport is available or can be reached on easy walking trails) on the grounds of inappropriate equipment, unsocial behavior or insufficient physical fitness. Please also note that it is inadvisable to bring along small children.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FOR INSURANCE PURPOSES MEMBERSHIP IN AN AUSTRIAN ALPINE ASSOCIATION (Alpine Club Vienna, Naturfreunde, Oesterreichischer Touristenklub) IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED, ESPECIALLY FOR C AND D HIKES.
