A team consisting of the environmental psychologists Renate Cervinka and Markus Schwab and the health expert Daniela Haluza recently published the results of a study on the recreational effects of the Hallerwald in Upper Austria in the top journal "Forests". The response of the study participants speaks for itself: The forest furniture, developed by local craftsmen, can be a real benefit for tourism as well as for educational and health initiatives. And being in the forest is relaxing for all of us!
