All the locations that form part of the Mountaineering Villages initiative are mountain sport pioneers in their own regions. That is why that the mountains and mountain activities occupy an important part in the cultural consciousness of locals and guests alike. An understanding of the essential harmony between man and nature is very much alive here, but there is widespread respect for all natural boundaries.
Less, but better – that is the mantra
The Alpine Association’s Mountaineering Villages thereby meet in full the aims of the Alpine Convention, a treaty which commits signatories to sustainable development throughout the Alpine region.
