A wellness and adventure garden with show distillery in Assling gives you an understanding of the power and benefits of Alpine herbs.
A 6,500 sq m large paradise called Vitalpinum was created on the area of the "Erste Tiroler Latschenölbrennerei" pine oil distillery by the Unterweger brothers. It is made of different areas such as the "Wellness Garden" with local plants and shrubs. A circular path leads to the single stations including an Alpine Herbs Shower, a Herb Oil Horoscope and the Arnica Fountain.
The trail proceeds to the "Zirbenkraftplatz", a place of strength with a waterfall and deckchairs made of pine wood which is known to have a balancing and calming effect on body and soul. Further on you can close your eyes and make a deep breath in the healing herbs field where arnica and marigold, thyme and lavender grow. Also an old pine oil distillery was recreated true-to-detail: In this Vitalpinum Show Distillery you can get an interesting insight into the traditional production of pine oil and other essential oils.
A playground, the special exhibition "Seit 1886" (Since 1886) which tells the success story of the Unterweger brothers and a brand store complete the offer of the Vitalpinum Adventure Garden. Unfortunately dogs are not allowed in the Vitalpinum.
In winter only the shop stays open.
