Here the whirring of the alpine air. There the vastness of the panoramic view. You see further. And you feel more intensely. The colors are stronger, the herbs taste more aromatic - and everything smells of life. Because one thing is clear: with every additional meter above the sea, the air gets thinner. In the mountains, the body works at full speed and produces more red blood cells to transport more oxygen. Top athletes like to take advantage of this effect. The body becomes more efficient, the mind freer. Training or exercise at around 1,500 m above sea level strengthens the immune system and accelerates the body's own high-altitude flights. The rule is: the longer, the better.
Of course, those who cannot stay in the mountains for so long can also benefit from the positive effect on the body. The slower pace of life, the many hours of sunshine and the fresh air allow the body to recharge its batteries. High altitudes are also particularly low in allergens and pollutants and are therefore ideal for strengthening body, mind and soul.
