Climate change and fine dust
According to the prognosis of the German meteorological service (DWD) climate change will also affect Germany.
Particularly stressful will be the increase in the number of days where it is hotter than thirty degrees Celsius. In contrast to the urban agglomerations however, climate change will have significantly less effect on healing climate spas. For example while the DWD predicts 32 hot days for Karlsruhe in the year 2050, it will only be 3 in healing climate of Freudenstadt. There the days will still be fresh in summer and the nights will stay pleasantly cool. It is not only the geographical location which is responsible for this. Healing climate locations have dedicated themselves for years to protecting the environment. Consequently, most of the locations are traffic calmed, gardens and parks provide shadow and fresh air corridors in-between the building which provide lasting air circulation. As the DWD regularly tests the air quality of healing climates for pollen and exhaust fumes and recently also the exposure to fine dust is meticulously investigated to ensure that a healthy climate continues to exist in the healing climate locations.
