Alpine Health in the National Park Region

Elixirs of Life "Forest and Water"

The forest and water belong to those elements that have accompanied us since time immemorial: In the forest we feel safe and protected, the water relaxes and refreshes us at the same time.

Both contribute to relaxation and ensure in a holistic way that body, mind and soul can recharge. The Hohe Tauern National Park holiday region is the largest nature reserve in Central Europe and offers guests an incomparable landscape with untouched primeval forests, 279 streams and 550 lakes. Those who are actively active here experience wellness in its purest form.

"BREATHE UP for allergy and asthma sufferers" is the motto in the national park town of Krimml. There you will find the largest waterfalls in Europe, the Krimml Waterfalls. Their extraordinary spray is a unique remedy for allergies and asthma - this has been confirmed several times in clinical studies.
