Recuperation and adventure - in the Prettau Healthy Climate Tunnel in the Tauferer Ahrntal Valley
Ahrntal Valley is home to the Prettau Healthy Climate
Tunnel, a health and respiratory centre deep inside the
mountain at a depth of 1,100 m.
The Healthy Climate
Tunnel in Prettau is a great place in which to experience an
allergy-free break and breathe in pure, mild and above all
pollen-free air that enables respiratory tract disease
sufferers to enjoy a type of therapy that is only available
under special microclimatic conditions. The pure air in the
tunnel soothes the airways and lungs, thus alleviating
respiratory tract complaints. The unique effect of the
tunnel microclimate on the human body was first observed
during the Second World War by a doctor in the Sauerland in
Germany. At the time the tunnel where he made the
observations was used as a place of refuge during bombings.
The Prettau Healthy Climate Tunnel is not only used as a
healing centre for chronic conditions, it is also a place
for relaxation. Anyone can visit and unwind, read, drink tea
or take a trip back into the history of mining on the
heritage trails. After the recommended two hours, visitors
can take the mine railway out of the healthy climate tunnel
and enjoy the unspoilt natural surroundings of the Tauferer
Ahrntal Valley. Relaxing, stress-free days are guaranteed.
