Climatic therapy night-time hike to the Partschins Waterfall
Climatic therapy is the application of natural weather and climatic factors for therapeutic purposes. Part of a successful hike is a lovely landscape where participants can feel completely safe and enjoy the appeal of constant new discoveries - both external and internal. A night-time hike places particular demands on not only our imagination, but also our senses. Our sense of smell and hearing react more keenly to the darkness. In addition, it is also easier to walk at night. We cannot tell in advance if we have reached our destination, and the rhythm of our steps helps give our thoughts free rein. This night-time variant of the climatic therapy hike leads through the darkness in the natural surroundings up to Partschins Waterfall. Thunderous noise and the finest spray herald the waterfall, which is revealed as an impressive natural spectacle after a good hour’s walk ascending 430 metres. A boon to lungs afflicted by life in the city, soothing for the soul and spirit. Measured exercise combined with targeted climatic exposure and expertly guided endurance and thermoregulation training lead to relaxation and recuperation, as well as increased resistance and a stronger immune system. The special microclimate around Partschins Waterfall, the pure air quality, which was ascertained in a scientific study conducted by the Technical University of Munich, and the unique mix of stimuli and protective factors offer the perfect conditions for climatic therapy treatments.
