An experience for all the senses

The Health Garden is a source of inspiration with its scents, shapes, colours and tastes.

Health Garden

At graduation tower II, you will find exciting experience stations for sensory moments.

The Health Garden, near the town centre and next to graduation tower II, features playful sensory experiences and enhances motor skills. Barefoot paths, humming stones, a herb garden and the partner swing are just a few of them. Wicker beach chairs are dotted around the blackthorn graduation tower for those seeking peace and relaxation. If you prefer to exercise, you can use the fitness trail and Kneipp facilities to strengthen your muscles and cardiovascular system.

 

Did you know?

The Health Garden and its experience stations reflect the teachings of Sebastian Kneipp. He was a priest who famously waded into the cold Danube in winter, marking the beginning of the Kneipp way of life based on five elements: water, exercise, nutrition, plants and balance.
