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.
