Forest Wellness at Reiterkogel

Immerse yourself in the ancient forests, 1,700 meters above sea level, where over 1,000 spruce trees thrive. Here, you breathe in fresh forest air, find tranquility, and relax far away from the hustle and bustle. The forest instinctively does us good.

Scientifically proven is the positive impact on our physical well-being. The forest converts CO₂ into pure oxygen, and the greenery of the forest has a demonstrable effect on our health. Forest bathing significantly boosts the immune system. A day in the forest increases natural killer cells by 40%, removing sick cells from the body. This effect lasts up to 7 days.

Everyone is familiar with the feeling that stress diminishes in the forest. Biochemically proven, stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline decrease after a day in the forest. In the forest, one can be oneself, free from expectations and worries. This state promotes creativity and enhances concentration.

Forest air strengthens specific immune cells and acts preventively against many diseases. Similar to sauna sessions, forest bathing activates white blood cells and strengthens defenses against pathogens. The natural forest environment also has positive effects on cardiovascular diseases, sleep disorders, and depression.
