Summits in Tirol and the Holiday Region Hohe Salve are still closely linked with tradition and customs. Mountains and major elevations, for example, are marked with crosses in the Alpine countries. The so-called summit crosses date back to the late 13th century. But they are not only a religious sign, the crosses on the mountains first and foremost serve as markings and waypoints. As a symbol of reaching a destination they can often be seen from afar and sometimes, in good visibility, are even discernible from down in the valley. Those who scale a summit in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve will also discover a summit cross when reaching the peak. Big, small, stately or plain - just as any mountain, the summit cross is also unique.
Apart from the tradition of summit crosses, the tradition of summit registers is also upheld in the Holiday Region Hohe Salve. On many summits in the region you’ll thus find a small book at the cross. There you can perpetuate your name, with the date and a short comment. There are no limits to creativity here. Beautiful poems, fun quotes and even drawings are often found in these books. The entry is a mandatory element of any mountain top tour for many hikers. It’s like a visitors’ book high up on the mountain.
