We ask all mountaineers at Mt. Hoher Sonnblick to consider that every cigarette sensitively disturbs our air chemistry measurements and that every breath can be recorded. For the benefit of your health, we would appreciate it if you do not smoke on the Mt. Hoher Sonnblick or only in the designated areas. We ask you to observe the signs. Unauthorized access to the observatory, including the observatory terraces and the cable car, is prohibited. Thank you very much!
