Everything in a nutshell.
You will find important and interesting information about the latest happenings in our vacation region here.
Farchant is a climatic health resort again!
Just before Christmas, the village of Farchant received a special gift: recognition as a “Luftkurort” (climatic health resort).
After almost four decades, the town is permitted to use the title of “Luftkurort” again – all of the requirements for recognition have been met.
First, though extensive measurements, analyses and assessments had to be carried out. For example, air quality was tested both in the village itself and in the surroundings in different seasons. The beneficial climatic conditions in the village are shown clearly by a climate analysis and a supplementary medical and climatological study.
