WALDNESS® - Forest works!

WALDNESS® is relaxation and recreation for body, mind and soul, enjoyment and exercise amidst wonderful trees, crystal clear mountain water, sunny alpine pastures and fragrant flower meadows in the 1st WALDNESS destination in Europe, in the Almtal in the Traunsee-Almtal region in the Salzkammergut.

Forest bathing (森林 浴 Shinrin-yoku), mostly translated as breathing in the healthy forest atmosphere during a forest walk, has been part of a good lifestyle in Japan for more than 20 years.
Staying in the forest, like aromatherapy, has a positive effect on our health on many levels: the immune system is strengthened, stress hormones are reduced and the quality of sleep improves.
WALDNESS® implements current Austrian and international studies on the healing power of the forest with experts and shows you many ways how you can best use the forest atmosphere for yourself and your health.
The WALDNESS® philosophy is to make the forest an enjoyable and considerate experience.
Sustainable holidays: 130,000 trees are planted in the Almtal every year - almost 80 percent of the municipal area of Grünau is covered with forest.
We look forward to your arrival with the Almtalbahn. We are happy to organize a shuttle service on site or offer our Traunstein taxi.
Wald-Wyda in wild and romantic forest places.

Wyda, the yoga of the Celts brings energy, flexibility and inner centeredness. The simple exercises calm the mind, train perception and concentration, release blockages, harmonize the flow of energy and intensify forest bathing.
Experience forest bathing and the forest school Almtal

You will get an insight into the fine art of forest management and the many positive effects that forests have on us humans. An intense and sensual nature time!
Forest pine bath in a beautiful mountain landscape
