For over 150 years now, holidaymakers have been travelling to St. Peter-Ording in the Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park to relax in the therapeutic climate.
St. Peter-Ording's natural surroundings of dunes, sea and pine forests offer an unrivalled health-enhancing holiday setting. Simply walking along the 12km beach ensures that pure North Sea air penetrates deep into the lungs. This seaside climate benefits several areas of the body, alleviating respiratory complaints, skin disorders and boosting the natural immune system. Fine anti-inflammatory particles are blown around in the seaspray and the nicely damp, salty air acts to calm and soothe the mucous membranes. As well as enjoying the vast beach area, visitors can head into the extensive pine forests to walk and relax. Laid out a century ago, these tranquil woodlands offer shade and protection from the wind, making them a delightful counterpart to the local climatic therapy.
