Visitors will be immediately greeted by particularly fresh air upon arriving there. There are more than 3,000 negative oxygen ions per cubic centimeter in the air, which makes it a veritable natural oxygen bar. Especially when the mist permeates the humid and sweet air, you will feel the urgent need to open your mouth and take deep breaths against the wind. Perhaps that is the resonance aroused between nature and you.
