Discover our best thermal hotels in Austria
What makes Austrian thermal baths so special?
First of all, the Austrian thermal spas are very different in their type and location. There are thermal baths with salt water, thermal baths without chlorinated water or those in Asian style. Some thermal hot springs are located in the Styrian volcanic country, others between the mountains and some in the middle of the skiing area. There is something for all tastes.
What probably connects all Austrian thermal baths is the great variety of saunas, steam baths, massages, as well as wellness or beauty treatments, which are inspired by nature and thus not only promote relaxation but also health. You can feel the nature not only during the wellness treatments, but also directly in front of your spa or wellness hotel. Our hotels are embedded in wonderful landscapes and ensure that you relax from the moment you arrive.
The Austrian thermal water
It has long been known that thermal water, depending on its composition, has positive effects on our body and mind. It has a stress-reducing effect, can strengthen the immune system and is pain-relieving. Austria has been blessed by nature and has a large number of natural healing springs, which make a thermal holiday possible in the first place. Frequently found in Austria are iron-rich thermal springs, iodine sulphur water, iodine brine, as well as radon or sulphate containing healing springs. If you would like to learn more about the general effects of thermal water and the minerals it contains, please have a look at our page on thermal water.
