Garmisch-Partenkirchen has something rare to offer - climatic conditions that can bring about true wonders. Low in allergens, very little fog, hardly any muggy days and an extremely high number of sunny days. All this really does you good!

But healthy air is just the tip of the iceberg here. Our specialty is climatic movement therapy - also called climate treatment or outdoor spa treatment. The principle is simple: Movement in the fresh air makes you fit! Your endurance is tested in cooperation with specialist doctors. Our climate therapists then select outdoor spa routes based on this - individually tailored to the respective guest's state of health. A personal therapist accompanies and supervises the hikes.

The Health Corner team is looking forward to hearing from you and will gladly answer your questions.

This is only possible in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Your health insurance (excluding assistance funds) will cover your hikes - the climatic movement therapy. Garmisch-Partenkirchen is the only resort in Germany where spa outpatients can "hike in the healthy climate" on prescription As a preventative measure, spa outpatients are prescribed the so-called climate treatment, climatic movement therapy, by the spa doctor. After registering at the Health Corner and being introduced to the climate therapists, you receive your spa treatment plan and then off you go!

Climate therapists have basic medical training and are trained at the Institute for Medical Balneology and Climatology at the University of Munich (LMU).

Climate therapists determine the spa treatment plan and outdoor spa routes based on the spa doctor's endurance specifications.  In close contact with the patient, the spa doctor and other therapists, they are of great importance to the success of the spa treatment as the point of contact.

Hiking with the climate therapists is particularly sustainable. They teach a conscious form of movement and help you find the right step rhythm. In addition to this, they provide suggestions on targeted breathing exercises, manual pulse measurement and increasing resilience through thermoregulation training.

Every Thursday at 9:30 at the Health Corner, there is a lecture on "Healthy climate: what is this?" (approx. 30 mins.). Then at 10:00, hikes to various destinations start out.
