- About Radstadt
“Come and visit us – your equipment is already here.” Each guest in the Best-of-Hiking-Region profits from our unique test center service.
Would you like to know what hiking with trekking poles is like? Do you want to test a real trekking umbrella when it rains and storms? Or maybe try out a pair of snowshoes in the virgin snow? How about an adventure tour using a pair of first-class binoculars? What if hiking were comfortable for a change, with modern brand name hiking shoes, the latest hiking backpacks and kid carrier? Try outdoor jackets similar to those designed for expeditions and serious mountaineering. GPS-devices including software of hiking tours are also available.
“Best of Hiking” (BoH), is a European cooperation between hiking regions and manufacturers that was founded in 2007 in order to offer a special service by providing visitors with the appropriate equipment for a variety of hiking trails. Since then, hikers have been able to test the latest brand name hiking equipment year round and free of charge in all BoH-regions.
The Best-of-Hiking test centers are places of service that were established in the partner regions to allow vacationers to test high quality hiking equipment. All you have to do is show your guest card.
Who can take advantage of the service?
This offer applies to whoever is interested. It does not matter whether they hike alone or as part of a group or whether a single person or a group wants to use the equipment. Generally, the equipment can be used on the day of the hike and has to be returned at the test center in the afternoon or on the following day. Fill out a form, leave behind a valid ID and a deposit of € 50 and you are good to go.
What kind of equipment can be borrowed?
