EquipmentFor an easy tour that lasts a day or several hours, the basic equipment of a hike is enough for you. This includes:
Good and reasonable footwear
Backpack (approx. 15-20l)
Enough provisions: drinks, preferably water in refillable drinking bottles, at least one meal and snacks like energy bars for in between, think also of a small plastic bag for waste!
Proper hiking clothing: avoid sweating too much and hypothermia, pack a light change of clothes if necessary, a jacket should never be missing and possibly rain gear (pay attention to weather forecast!)
Sun protection: sunscreen, sunglasses and headgear.
Cell phone (charged!) with emergency app, ID card, possibly alpine club ID and cash for the huts
First aid kit, blister plasters and handkerchiefs
Especially as a beginner, your backpack should end up weighing no more than 9kg. The motto is: as much as necessary, as little as possible.
