Forest bathing in Ramsau am Dachstein

20 minutes of relaxation in the great outdoors.

Ramsau am Dachstein is the perfect place to discover forest bathing or Shinrin-Yoku. The sunny cross-country skiing and hiking area at the foot of the Dachstein and the striking alpine terrain are well known to adventure holidaymakers. Ramsau am Dachstein is also a green oasis with forest mountains such as the Kulmberg, avenues of maple trees and larch forests.

In this wonderful location, “bathing in the forest air” helps against stress and inner restlessness. With a walk of about 20 – 30 minutes through the forest, the positive effect on our organism begins. You noticeably feel the relaxation, no deadline pressure or digital distraction. Only the green of nature and the scent of the forest.

Immerse yourself in nature with all your senses.

Depending on the season, the forest smells and glows differently. All 5 senses of touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste are sharpened and reactivated in nature. On a warm summer day, the forest smells very different than on a foggy, cool autumn day.

Close your eyes and focus on the sounds of the forest. Listen to the wind rustling through the leaves, the happy chirping of the birds or just the silence of the surroundings. Feel the dewy moss on the forest ground. Eating fresh wild strawberries, delicate spruce tops in spring taste wonderfully lemony and can be used as a tea infusion. The calm atmosphere relaxes the entire musculature and thus helps us to reduce stress.

The forest air naturally contains essential oils.

Trees produce so-called terpenes – healthy messenger substances that protect them from heat or pests. These potent fragrances are released into the air via leaves and needles. During a stay in the forest, we absorb them through the skin and breathing and can thus use the full healing effect of the tree oils for ourselves.

A stay in the forest is not only an adventure for children, but can also be a new healing experience for adults. Try it!
