Analysing terrain data
The exposure grade describes the potential consequences of falling or slipping off the path.
Low Exposure: The path is on completely flat land and potential injury is limited to falling over.
Medium Exposure: The trail contains some obstacles such as outcroppings and rock which could cause injury.
High Exposure: Some trail sections have exposed ledges or steep ascents/descents where falling could cause serious injury.
Extreme Exposure: Some trail sections are extremely exposed where falling will almost certainly result in serious injury or death.
Walking, running or cycling around Lake Neusiedl in the winter is a long, far and real adventure journey that requires genuine courage and genuine strength.
The route through the unique UNESCO World Heritage Site Fertoe Lake Neusiedl consists of authentic pictures with an endless number of tactile and acoustic impressions.
The grounds are hard and sometimes soft and mushy.
At night, you can hear things you would rather hear than see.
When it is cold, you are really freezing, and it can really snow as well, or hail.
Sometimes - like during the 2015 Tour - all of this happens at the same time.
The Tour is no video game with ten lives.
There is no intervention by superheroes who will lift you to the next level.
The last Tour saw 3500 people hit the trail.
Not all of them made it to the finishing line, but all of them reached their goal and talked about magical moments.
