Bergwegekonzept BRD / Orientation system

Bergwegekonzept BRD
Bergwegekonzept BRD

The Mountains are calling! People hiking and biking in the German mountains should be able to orientate themselves quickly and easily as in Austria and Switzerland. Destination names and routing symbols apply for both groups. Further information is provided on restaurants, mountain railways, car parks and train stations. The sleak, round shape harmonizes with the natural surroundings. Different heights structure the system in three types of direction signs: Signs for orientation, main and inbetween signs.
