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 situated on a slope above the Jáchymov Valley and since 1975 it has been a dominant feature of the valley. Thanks to its spaciousness, airiness and unique view of the surrounding Ore Mountains, it has become a popular and sought-after place of stay for many visitors.

The healing success of the spa is 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 therapy are very similar to those of radon tunnel therapy.

St. Joachimsthal is situated on the southern slope of the Ore Mountains, not far from the German border. The healing success of the spa is based on the noble gas radon. In the 16th century Jáchymov was one of the most important towns in Europe because of the 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 centre of Jáchymov is a listed zone 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 Aquacentre with a gallery sauna, but also picturesque spa park with a music pavilion, a children's playground and a small lake. The spa district is surrounded by a forest park with many hiking trails.

Good to Know

The healing effects of the radon spring

Radon has been successfully used as a natural remedy in St. Joachimsthal for over 100 years. The radon-containing thermal springs are unique with a strong intensity of 4.5 - 5.5 kBq/l. Thanks to the high radon content, the effects of a 3-week healing therapy are very similar to those of radon cave treatments.

Radon baths belong to the most effective balneological remedies. Radon activates the body's regenerative capacity and increases the resistance of the organism. It contributes to the blood circulation in bones and joints, acts as a remedy against rheumatism and can bring pain relief for 8 - 10 months after the therapy. Optimal duration of treatment from 2 weeks with 10 radon baths.

Worldwide unique Schemerz therapy - "Joachimsthaler boxes".

Special pain-relieving therapy - brachyradium therapy, is suitable in the treatment of chronic painful conditions of the locomotor system that do not respond to any other type of analgesic treatment. Here, the pain-relieving effect of ionising gamma rays is used, which is applied locally to the painful area using a special method. The therapy offers patients pain relief for several months.

This form of therapy is a rarity worldwide and is only offered in Bad St. Joachimsthal.
