Frühling im Wald - eine Mini-Knigge für Spaziergänge - NIKIN EU

Spring in the forest - a mini etiquette for walks

What could be better than enjoying spring in nature? We looked around the region of our home base in Lenzburg and discovered some wonderful forest walks and hikes. But the focus is not only on the beauty of nature, but also on sustainability. We would like to share some behavioral tips with you today - of course these apply not only to the area around Lenzburg, but everywhere.

Before you start your spring walk, remember that the forest is a delicate ecosystem. So only take what you need with you to avoid waste. Instead, you can pack a reusable water bottle and a cloth bag for snacks. If you find strange rubbish in the forest, please take it with you and dispose of it later in a rubbish bin or container.

The forest is home to numerous animal and plant species and their protection is an important issue. Make sure to treat nature with respect and not leave the paths. Also avoid picking flowers and feeding animals.

Attention: With spring comes the time of the young animals in the forest. From April 1st to July 31st, the legal leash requirement for dogs applies in Aargau and most other cantons of Switzerland. Out of consideration for wild animals, there should also be Noisy activities at dusk and at night are avoided.

Sustainable arrival

If possible, the best way to get to the starting point of your forest walks or hikes is by public transport or bicycle. This reduces CO2 emissions and relieves the already overcrowded Easter traffic.
