Spa Hotel Behounek in Detail

Your Hotel

Modern with a magnificent view of the panorama of the Erzgebirge mountains, situated on a slope at the edge of the forest (about 300 m from the Agricola).

Location & Surroundings

The hotel is located on a slope above the Jáchymov valley and since 1975 it has been an unmistakable dominant of the valley. Thanks to its spaciousness, airiness and unique view of the surrounding Krušné hory (Ore Mountains), it has become a popular and sought-after place of stay for many visitors.

The healing effects of the spa are based on the noble gas radon. Thanks to the high radon content (10.5 kBq/l at the springs), the effects of a 3-week cure are very similar to those of radon tunnel cures.

Jáchymov is situated on the southern slope of the Ore Mountains, not far from the German border. The healing effects of the spa are based on the noble gas radon. In the 16th century Jáchymov was one of the most important towns in Europe because of its right to mint coins. The history of the town is closely connected with the mining of silver, tin and uranium. The last active mine in Jáchymov is called Svornost and supplies the treatment areas with radon water.

The historical center of Jáchymov is a protected area with houses in the Renaissance-Gothic style.

In the quiet spa district in the lower part of the town you will find not only spa hotels, restaurants and the Agircola aquatic center with a studded sauna, but also picturesque spa park with a bandstand, a children's playground and a small lake. The spa district is surrounded by a forest park with many hiking trails.

Dining & Leisure

2 restaurants Bellevue and Bohemia with national and international cuisine. Meals in buffet form, on request also diet, vegetarian, lactose and gluten-free cuisine. Dance café with regular cultural events, as well as a lounge for domino and bridge games.

Other wellness facilities and the Aquacentrum only 250 m in the spa center Agricola. "EurospaMed" (ESPA), ISO 9001-2000.

The Ore Mountains are a paradise for hiking, biking and skiing. Thematic hiking trails e.g. the radon theme trail, the hell of Jáchymov, theme trail Gottesgab peat bog and many others. Trips: Loket castle, porcelain and glass museum in Karlovy Vary. Oberwiesentahl in Ore Mountains only 12 km away. 18-hole golf club Karlovy Vary and golf club Cihelny (about 6 km), golf club Mariánské Lázně (about 40 km).

It was wonderful and relaxing.

as a couple | 70 to 79 years | 4 - 8 days

It was our first wellness trip. Everything was well organized, no time pressure and the staff were nice and friendly. As a tip, it would be nice to have small water dispensers in the treatment areas so that you can have a drink after the treatment, otherwise there are plenty of drinks at the vending machines. But that would be a small service for the spa guests. We will be going again next year.

The vacation was very relaxing in beautiful surroundings.
