equipment & tools
- Towel. They are available by default, but to be on the safe side, you'd better take one with you.

what you should find out beforehand
- The house rules. We are all guests in the Bschlabertal and therefore want to treat the nature and the people, but also the accommodations and places of work there with respect.
- The localities. What do Bschlabs and Boden look like, and the roads in between? Where is my accommodation, where is my place of work?
- Weather. Will it rain? How warm is it supposed to get? The weather in the Bschlabertal can change quickly and also strong thunderstorms are not uncommon in summer. Sepp Schluiferer wrote about the climate and mood in Tyrol:
"It's winter for seven months and cold the other five months."
also good to know
- There is no store in the Bschlabertal. It takes half an hour by bus to Elmen. There is a small Spar where you can go shopping. The next bigger grocery store is 25 min away by car. In Reutte there are stores for almost all goods. Reutte is 35 min away by car and a good hour away by bus.
- The road between Bschlabs and Boden is not walkable. It is only a roadway and too dangerous to walk there. There is a hiking trail as a connection between the two places, but unfortunately it was flooded by a mudslide and is therefore also difficult to walk on at the moment.
- The bus through the valley runs 4 times a day from Imst to Elmen. In Elmen you can take the connecting bus to Reutte or to the upper Lechtal. The trips start as soon as the Hahntennjoch opens. The bus schedule should be fixed at the beginning of May. More details about the connection under "what is bschlabs? > how to get there".
- If you have intolerances or follow a certain dietary style that cannot be catered for at the buffet, please make sure that you are catered for regardless of the food offered by medienfrische.
