The Gastein cure in the Salzburger Land

Give new energy to body, mind and soul

Already in the Imperial Era the world’s most important people visited the Gastein valley to enjoy the healing climate together during their summer holiday. Wilhelm I. came 2 dozen times for the curative bathing therapy, Franz Josef I. spent several times here with his wife Sisi. And today still, Bad Gastein is a medically approved spa town, especially because of the water’s elementary power. Every day 4.5 million litres of thermal water emerge from the 17 spa springs. Radon is one of the most important contents of the water. Clinical studies confirm the special effects of the rare gas on Bekhterev’s disease, rheumatic problems, arthrosis, respiratory and skin diseases. 

Worldwide unique combination

The rainwater takes 3 millenniums to trickle away 2,000 m under the ground. Here it warms up and afterwards it springs out of the mountain on 1,000 m above sea level. The warmth supports the blood circulation and the Gastein spa town altitude between 800 and 1,200 m promotes the body’s supply with oxygen. Radon, warmth and the altitude are a worldwide unique combination.
