"Forest air is a healing potion to breathe in!"

The Hochberghaus gives you what people want: get away from the stress of everyday life, stay away from disposable items and get back to nature .

It is precisely from them that we benefit for our health. The green of the grass and forests reduce stress and heartbeat, from which we draw our inner peace . The ethereal scent of the bushes and trees and the sound of the birds and leaves underline the stay in the fresh summer forest.
