Few seem to recognize the health benefits of fresh air.  Clean air enters airways in the body, relieving the entire body by means of an increased supply of oxygen. The mild climate of Semmering (not incomparable to Davos, Switzerland) is particularly favourable and stimulating for those with respiratory diseases (bronchitis, allergies, asthma, etc.).

In 1921, the Municipality of Semmering was officially confirmed as a climatic health resort with all rights and duties. In recent years, the latest medical consensus is that exposure to high altitudes contributes to increased circulation and clarity of the lungs, mind, and nerves, and that exercise performed at this altitude has an invigorating effect on the mind and body. Clearly however, even decades ago the benefits of being in the and even exercising in it were well known.

Semmering is not a closed mountain valley, but instead a wide open space – contributing to the clear mountain air. The numerous ravines and rock formations also significantly add to the scenic attraction of the area. The incredible panoramic view at such a high altitude promises a liberating feeling with each view. In fact, a long-term air quality study of the local high-altitude are has revealed that the mountain resort of Semmering is absolutely pollution-free! Individual pollutants – especially the fine particulate matter – are well below the detection threshold.
