The Kneipp Garden in Fuschl am See
Kneippism Wellbeing in Salzburg
Sebastian Kneipp (1821 -1897) was a man of vision who realised that “health” was dependent not just on physical but also psychological wellbeing. His natural healing methods paved the way for a new era in preventative medicine.
Kneipp was convinced of the healing powers of water and that ailments could be soothed and cured using herbs and indigenous plants. His years of experience and systematic and scientifically based research helped him to found the Kneipp philosophy which enjoys great popularity in Austria and parts of Germany today. Water, plants, physical exercise and nutrition form the basis of the Kneipp philosophy. When put into practice Kneipp’s naturopathic products and treatments create a whole new way of life.
Fuschl’s Kneipp Association offers an attractive introductory programme every Monday and invites guests to “have a go” and find out more about Kneipp! There’s nothing to fear, the programme on offer includes treading water, moon-light walks, gymnastics or a visit to the herb garden to find out just what the various different plants can be used for. The programme is free of charge and there’s sure to be something of interest for everyone. Use this as an opportunity to make your holiday a happy and healthy one.
