Very thin air shrinks the brain. Mild hypoxia, i.e. a slight lack of oxygen, on the other hand, has the opposite effect, says the doctor and neuroscientist Peter Rieckmann. And so the moderate altitude, which is given in the Alps between 1,000 and 3,000 metres, offers the best conditions, purely climatically, for a brain camp. In general, says Rieckmann, the risk of contracting certain diseases is lower at this altitude. So, to put it simply, the Alps are good for the brain and the heart.
You can train the brain like a muscle, it doesn’t grow like biceps, but it can learn to network better between people, smells, or even places and connect them with memories.
We here in Kühtai are a think tank for the brain. You can strengthen this, for example, just by staying with us, skiing or hiking at our altitude. In this way, guests in Kühtai combine enjoyment and health promotion in a perfect way at 2020 metres above sea level.
High-altitude air offers many advantages, says brain research. Here, enjoyment and health promotion can be perfectly combined.
