Even if you think the event suits you, please read all the information below before joining. A short hike can be much harder than a long one, depending on the pace, the steepness, the weather.
Also, if I judge that you are not fit / experienced enough to do this hike (I'll take a look at your profile on the website), I may refuse your participation.

❹ GROUP SPIRIT
Hiking Buddies has to be considered as a group of friends willing to spend a good time together in the mountains. The person publishing the event is someone like you who doesn't want to go hiking alone. For that reason (s)he spends a significant amount of time looking for a route, taking care of choosing the right transportation, checking the weather, if huts are open, etc. As a participant, your duty is to respect the work of the organiser by being on time, sticking with the group, being polite with every other participant. Also, don't join if you have plans after the hike - you never know what can happen (accidents, slow group, delayed train) and we could get back to Munich later than expected.
Oh, and remember - Hiking Buddies wouldn't be that great without those brave organisers. So don't just join events, and go for it, create events yourself! I'm sure you won't end up going alone!
