The weather affects everyone
The biological climatic map describes where warm or cold bracing climate is extremely effective and in which bracing climate zones Germany’s climatic health resorts are to be found. Below, the effects of warmth or coldness on the human well-being are explained.

Heat regulation: thermal regulation provides for the fact that the body temperature remains
stable. At the same time, metabolism, heart and circulation system as well as respiration are
strained. By cold stimuli, the organism’s regulatory ability can be trained, for example through
climatic therapies. There, air temperature, humidity, wind speed as well as short and long waves
play a role in the atmosphere.
Seasons: the areas in Germany are characterised according to the degree of bio-meteorological demands regarding the thermal regulation of the organism. Here, the frequent occurrence of “heat strain” in the summer semester and “cold strain” in the winter semester is taken into consideration. In spring and autumn, cold strains are clearly reduced compared to the representation on the map.
Heat strain: mainly in summery high-pressure weather situations with high temperature, high humidity and low air movements.
Cold strain: with low temperature, increased wind speed and mostly dense clouding. The climatic reaction of a person is very distinctive and depends on age, sex, constitution, reaction type, health condition and degree of acclimatisation. In case of climatic changes it has to be observed that the climatic strain is also in contrast to the accustomed biological climate of the home town.
