    “WALDNESS” - forest bathing is a cure!

    We are part of the network of forest farms in the Almtal valley! The idyllic Almtal valley (Salzkammergut region) offers a very special break from everyday life: “Waldness” (a coined term composed of the German word for “forest” and “wellness”). Immerse yourself in the cleansing depths of the forest. Be fully present in the moment, take in the scents and enjoy. Feel the soothing effect of trees and plants in the forest. Understand the deep connection between humans and nature. Your immune system will be grateful. The air in the forest contains terpenes that boost our natural killer T cells, inducing a 50% increase in performance. Simple yoga poses, forest bathing, forest school classes, a bath in mountain pines, a Kneipp cure and time off in the most picturesque spots - the forest is like a fountain of youth!

    Packages can be booked at the local tourist office (please inform us upon booking)!

    Our house offers a diverse range of activities for all ages: table tennis, table soccer, toys, board games, books, playground, sandpit, outdoor swimming pool with Roman stairs, trampoline, lawn for sunbathing, private access to the picturesque mountain stream (wade through the cold water, build dams, bask in the sun on the lounger in the stream and take a forest bath), room for skis, ski boots and hiking boots, sauna. Free seats and loungers for our guests.

    Culinary delights by the Alm river - “Waldness” forest bathing - locally sourced products - beautiful nature zoo park!

    In summer, you can set out on hikes in the mountains, cycling tours, country walks along the river or runs right from the doorstep. Check out the new trail “Berge und Seen” (“mountains and lakes”)! “Genuss am Almfluss” - stroll along the river Alm and enjoy tasty snacks in the most picturesque spots!
