A LONG TRADITION OF LOCAL MEDICINAL EXPERTISE
Pinzgau has a long tradition of local medicinal expertise. Just a couple of generations ago herbal creams, ointments and oils were commonly used to prevent or cure illnesses. Salzburg’s Saalachtal is home to a wide variety of important ingredients for herbal remedies, such as resins, onion, pork fat, honey, vinegar, arnica, spruce, loam, St. John’s wort and potatoes. The positive effects on human well-being have been confirmed by a scientific study conducted by Paris Lodron University in Salzburg.
Our TEH experts take guests on tours of gardens, and on trips out into the countryside to pass on their fascinating knowledge of the effects of the various domestic herbs and foods. This knowledge will benefit you long after your time in Saalfelden Leogang. Produce your own remedies, herbal creams or a tincture from herbs and roots under the supervision of one of our TEH practitioners.
