SAINT JAKOB IN DEFEREGGEN
The healing mountain air and the famous Deferegg healing water of Sankt Jakob captivate passionate hikers and spa guests alike. Well-known scientists, politicians, and corporate leaders have always drawn strength here and sought retreat to develop ideas and explore new spheres.
Even if they wouldn’t have called it that back then, great pioneers of the “Rural Residencies” can be found in the annals of St. Jakob in Defereggen. In Sankt Jakob, renowned scientists such as Max Planck, who developed quantum theory, statesmen such as former Vice-Chancellor Bruno Pittermann and former President Rudolf Kirchschläger, and business giants such as CEO of Nestlé Ulf Mark Schneider, all found inspiration and gathered peace, strength, and ideas for ground-breaking things.
