Emergency App by Tyrolean mountain rescue

In 2012, the Leitstelle Tirol has, together with Tyrol mine rescue, developed the “Notfall App Bergrettung Tirol operated by Leitstelle Tirol GmbH” specifically for emergencies in the Alpine regions of the Tyrol. The app can only be used in the Tyrol and is available free of charge. In an acute situation, it makes it possible for the user, at the touch of a button, to transmit his or her own location (using GPS coordinates) to the Leitstelle Tirol, while a telephone connection between them is simultaneously established. As a consequence of this, the Leitstelle Tirol alerts and dispatches the necessary emergency personnel.

  1. Hi,
    just a small question, do I need to choose between 35 or 52 km already with registration? And if I choose the 52 km trail what happens if I see that I will not be able to do it till the end?
    Thank you for your reply.
    Best regards

    1. Hi Nastja, you have to choose between 35 or 52 km already with registration. But if you choose the 52 km trail and you finish after the 35 km we can change your registration to the other discipline after the race – if you like. :) Nice greetings – Yours Team Karwendelmarsch

  2. Hello!

    Can you please clarify the time limit for the 35km event? Is it 2.30pm or 5.00pm in Eng. The German info says all participants must be in Eng by 2.30pm or am I translating wrong?

    Cheers, Karin

    1. Hi Karin,

      if you want to go 52 km you have to pass the eng until 02.30 pm, if you are later you have to finish in the eng (with 35km).

      And finishing in the Eng is possible until 05.00 pm.
      We hope the explanation is helpful – your Team Karwendelmarsch

  3. Dear Friends
    I’d like to come
    but I did’t realise how I shall return to the start point
