It's a conflict that has been fermenting for a long time: day tourists versus locals.

Even before the corona pandemic, overtourism brought many places in the foothills of the Alps to the limit of pain.

Munich - It was a

stinky finger who

pointed

from Miesbach to Munich

* and heated people there.

At the beginning of January, a stranger had put up a sign at the entrance to Miesbach, on which the finger could be seen, above it a Munich license plate and the insult “

Piss off!

"

Despite corona lockdown: pressure on popular destinations in Bavaria remains

Someone here had

obviously

lost

their nerve

in the

pandemic

, it was suddenly called

day tourists against locals

.

Then came the

15-kilometer rule with a high incidence

, plus general decrees that forbade excursions into polluted circles.

But in

the Miesbach district

, where popular destinations such as

Schliersee and Tegernsee

are located, the

ban

on

visitors could

already be a thing of the past this Monday.

So what?

The

German Alpine Association

(DAV) has thought about how the dispute could be defused.

Matthias Ballweg

, chairman of the Oberland section of the DAV, and

Günther Manstorfer

, chairman of the Munich section, say: “We are

very concerned about

pacifying this long-

fermenting conflict

.

Therefore, solutions are required that last beyond the

current tense situation

.

Here must

we all act together with good judgment

. "

6-point plan for mountain peace

Here is a

6-point plan

for

more understanding for each other

, for relieving the burden on the environment and managing the flow of visitors in the pandemic:

Contacts

: Mountain athletes should reduce these as much as possible.

Also on arrival.

Distance on the mountain: More than the required 1.5 meters.

Summit rest

: If too many people are in one place, go somewhere else.

Tour planning

: Mountaineers should avoid popular places at popular times.

Alternatives

: Also look for tours close to home.

Performance level

: Only undertake tours that are significantly below your own performance level.

This reduces the risk of accidents and relieves hospitals.

Mountaineering bus

: As soon as spring arrives and the conditions allow, the Oberland section wants to

deploy

a mountaineering bus from Munich to the

Ammergau Alps Nature Park

.

Tour starting points are approached that are difficult to reach by train.

One destination could be Ettal, for example.

Routes to the Allgäu and Chiemgau are planned.

DAV: Visiting bans don't solve the problem

Incidentally, the DAV does not see

bans on visits, such as in

the Miesbach district

or in

the Berchtesgadener Land district

, as a solution for the future.

Rather, the goal must be to find solutions with everyone involved.

The Berchtesgadener Land has been in corona lockdown * since October.

The numbers are not falling as hoped, but the district administrator still draws a positive conclusion.

In the meantime, the corona situation in Miesbach is relaxing, as
