10 hiking tips for spring

In those vernal seasons of the year (...),
it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to (...)
partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.

John Milton, 1608-1674, English poet, philosopher

Spring is an invitation to allow the little wonders of nature enchant you, to enjoy the fresh air and take a closer look, instead of focusing on the elevation gain when hiking.
At Lake Constance, spring starts in mid-March and spreads gradually throughout the country week by week. In early May, the meadows bloom in the Rheintal valley in Vorarlberg. The mountain meadows are full of crocuses and cowslips, butterflies float through the air. The many bird species have returned from their winter habitats, and start mating and brooding their young.
