With something for every health fanatic and active holidaymaker, Schmallenberg in the Sauerland region boasts an exceptional range of health facilities across its 83 districts as well as not one, but two healing caves where visitors can really breathe easy.

Underground climatic therapy, or speleotherapy as the experts call it, is put to use in the Schmallenberg healing caves. With the temperature maintained at 9 degrees and the humidity at almost 100%, the air is constantly replenished, which keeps the levels of dust, pollen and pathogens incredibly low. This is sure to be a relief for anyone suffering from respiratory disorders, chronic lung disease or whooping cough. Allergic reactions can also be eased in Schmallenberg – in the healing caves and indeed the whole town since it has been awarded an "Allergy Friendly" seal.
