The sound of birds chirping, the scent of pine on the breeze, the beauty of nature everywhere you look. Discover tranquillity while forest bathing in Scheffau.+
A holiday should be all about rest and relaxation, discovering the local area, and enjoying new experiences. A good way of combining all this on your getaway at Das Alpin, one of the best hotels in Scheffau, Austria, is by forest bathing. Despite its name, this practice doesn’t involve any water, but is about immersing yourself in the tranquillity of the forest. Simply breathe in the pure, Alpine forest air, let go of the hectic pace of daily life, and enjoy a profound connection to nature. There are a number of mental, physical, and spiritual benefits associated with forest bathing, with research suggesting it can reduce blood pressure and improve immunity, as well as reducing stress levels. You can simply soak up the peaceful woodland sounds while walking on one of the many forest trails near Scheffau, or you can find a comfortable spot to sit and indulge in a moment of meditation or yoga. And if you’re not quite sure where to start, you can enjoy a guided forest bathing session completely free of charge with your Wilder Kaiser Card, one of our inclusive services here at Das Alpin.
