Garmisch-Partenkirchen – a feel-good health resort
Relaxing and recovering in Bavaria
Some places just make you feel good – you’ll notice that immediately. All of a sudden, you breathe a little more freely, feel lighter and have a hint more energy than usual.
The ancient Greeks already knew about this effect – today, science can prove it. As a climatic health resort, Garmisch-Partenkirchen combines a number of factors that make it easy to feel good from head to toe. Low levels of allergens, little fog, barely any hot and humid days but lots of sunny ones instead – all these attributes make the Bavarian mountain resort a true haven of peace. The atmosphere takes some weight off your shoulders and helps you to relax and to balance body and mind.
A premium-class climatic health resort
The iodine- and sulphur-rich springs in the Kainzenbad came first – followed by the construction of the first health facility. Then, everything happened very quickly: Garmisch-Partenkirchen became a popular destination for summer holiday guests and relaxation-seeking skiers. Ever since its early days, visitors have been appreciating the healthy air and the altitude of the resort – and we’re doing a lot to maintain the special healing climate of our beautiful region.
Regular fine-particle testing, consistent traffic calming measures, targeted town planning, forestry programmes and the use of regional products: All that is a matter of honour to us. That’s why it’s not surprising that Garmisch-Partenkirchen became a certified “Premium Class” climatic health resort for the third time in 2016 – a seal of quality that only 16 health resorts have received so far. We’re taking care of our town so that you can take care of your wellbeing here.
Actively relaxing in the Bavarian Alps
Relaxing at the spa, during Qigong at the Michael-Ende-Kurpark or actively while hiking – in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, there are more than enough opportunities to do something beneficial for your body and mind. A variety of courses, seminars and analyses can be found, for instance, at our Health Corner. This service point is the primary point of contact for expert health advice!
As a special offer, you can go hiking on prescription in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. As a preventive measure, outpatients receive a prescription for climatic movement therapy by their doctor – specifically for this offer. The idea behind it is simple: Movement in fresh air makes you fit! Hiking in a healing climate in high-altitude is much more than that, though: Medical specialists test your aerobic capacity, and climate therapists compile a list of suitable health trails for you. That’s how the body gets optimally activated and stimulated. Always by your side: a personal therapist – and stunning scenic views!
