Austria on a series of contoured and GPS compatible outdoor leisure maps from Freytag & Berndt with hiking and cycling routes, mountain huts, campsites and youth hostels, local bus stops, plus other tourist information. The whole country is covered at 1:50,000; selected popular areas are also presented with 50K cartography enlarged to 1:35,000 for larger print and clearer legibility.
The maps have contours at 100m intervals in the mountainous areas and 50m elsewhere, enhanced by shading, graphic relief and colouring for woodlands. The overprint highlighting waymarked hiking trails is graded into three types: easy walks, mountain paths, and more difficult alpine sections. Waymarked trails including long-distance routes are annotated with their numbers and/or signs. The maps also highlight cycling and mountain biking routes, cross-country ski tracks, and Nordic walking tracks. Symbols indicate mountain huts, youth hostels, campsites and countryside hotels/inns, bus stops on local roads, car parks plus various facilities and places of interest. The maps have a 2-km UTM grid, plus latitude and longitude margin ticks at 5’ intervals. Selected titles also have in the accompanying booklet (see below) an additional list of GPS waypoints indicated on the map. Map legend includes English.
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ BEFORE ORDERING: most titles come with booklets in GERMAN containing extensive additional information including an index of main locations, suggestions for walks (often accompanied by route profiles) and other recreational activities, lists of mountain huts and other recommended accommodation, etc. Unless specified in the title’s individual description, all the information is in German only and no English language version of the booklet is available. Some titles carry similar information on the reverse.
