It's like nowhere else

The St. Ignaz tunnel crosses the mountain for about 1 km. Here, in the old mine halls, you'll keep your mind off work, de-stress and find serenity. The high humidity binds airborne particles with allergens, producing a clearer air and favouring a breathing cure. To start your adventure, you can take a ride on the mining train which will take you to a place where air quality is at the forefront of wellbeing: the clean air of the climate gallery Prettau helps combat against respiratory diseases and allergies.  During your two-hour stay in this special microclimate, there'll be an experienced staff and physiotherapists taking after you.

The clean air area in Ahrntal

Breathe the pollen-free mountain air

In the Ahrntal, particularly clean air ensures your wellbeing. Scientists rave about it, calling it one of the cleanest existing air spots. They've found hardly any ozone, pollutants are way below legal limits and there's barely any pollen floating in the air. So, how is that possible? Well, a crucial aspect is the location. Tucked between 1,000 to 3,500 m, the valley is overlooked by over 80 three-thousand metre peaks, and the air quality is assuredly good. What's more, there's hardly any traffic passing through, thanks to the valley's end meeting Italy's northernmost mountains.

But that's not all. Even underground, the air is one of the cleanest you'll ever breathe. For instance, in the climate gallery Prettau, the air is so pure that people suffering from asthma or pollen allergies can start breathing normally. Recent studies have proven the positive effects of the gallery's microclimate in Prettau.

Water, too, contributes to the cleanness of water. With 120 drinking water springs, 35 mountain lakes and ten waterfalls, the landscape of the Ahrntal is shaped by water which adds a refreshing touch to the air we breathe.
