Seldom has it been more important than today to recharge exhausted energy reserves, recharge your batteries and absorb the almost magical diversity of nature. Wellness in the forest offers the perfect stage for all that and more. In the forest bathing in Bad Hofgastein in the unique Gastein natural area, this is exactly what comes first. The “green lung” of the Gastein Valley promises valuable relaxation and urgently needed recovery as part of conscious hikes.
Hiking meets wellness in the Gastein Valley
To avoid any misunderstandings: Forest bathing does not mean that you plunge into cool water between spruce and pine trees. Instead, you experience the living space consciously, experience a piece of unspoiled nature, and finally come closer to nature again. Wellness in the forest invites you to consciously experience the forces of the Gastein Valley. The contrast of dark green trees and crystal clear water, the rushing of which accompanies all excursions, invites you to rediscover the inner center, to breathe freely, to prepare for new challenges.
Where forest bathing is possible in Gastein
That sounds of course extremely fascinating, downright inspiring, but where should this slightly different wellness offer be found? In Bad Hofgastein, two designated forest swimming areas await curious visitors:
- Waterfall path: A gentle rush leads uphill from the town center along an inlet of the Gastein spring water. 14 stations lead to the Gräfinsitz and make the magic of nature tangible in a unique way. A short rest in the Annencafé, Café Sonnberg or Café Gamskar is a must.
- Angertal: It starts at the Waldgasthof Angertal. The signposted path runs on the left to the Schattbachalm. You can already smell the water and the forest. Seven different stations lead through the diversity of mountain nature and the forest.
Combine this somewhat different wellness experience with a summer stay at the Steindlwirt. We look forward to your non-binding vacation request !
