    Why We Need Nature, Now More Than Ever

    Sense the Respite

    It all started a long time ago, in the midst of wild, unrestrained nature – first in the steppe, then under trees, in caves, and later around the fire. Humans love nature, because our senses have developed there. Millennia of evolution surrounded by the elements have naturally calibrated us to feel at home in the forest. In today's world, appointments, offices, and our daily digital overdose may intervene, but our "green" imprint remains. And it's a good thing, too: It is why we breathe more easily when we see a crystal-clear lake; why we feel secure when smelling wood and strong when walking through the forest.

    Nature soothes our overwhelmed minds. From the healing effect of waterfalls and trees to the beauty of cultural landscapes, mountains, and waters, Austria is filled with natural gems – alive, sensual, and relaxing all at once.
