The radon bath at the 5-star Hotel EUROPÄISCHER HOF

Experience the curative power of thermal water

For centuries the elementary power of the Bad Gastein thermal water, which arises from 17 springs, has been considered to have a special curative effect. A “fountain spirit” had been held responsible for the soothing effect, until researchers discovered in 1904 radon as the effective content of the springs. Clinical studies have confirmed that the water has a positive effect with Bekhterev’s disease, rheumatic problems, arthrosis, respiratory and skin diseases. 

Radon’s natural effects

Radon’s gentle and natural effects on the body are (if consumed in a curative way) nothing but positive. The curative successes are enhanced by the Gastein spa town’s altitude. Our organism adjusts to the climate and produces more red blood cells which improves the ability to emit oxygen to the tissue. Radon helps with:

  • Inflammatory, rheumatic diseases, like Bekhterev’s disease or chronic Polyarthritis
  • Degenerative and deforming joint diseases (osteoarthritis, spondylosis, osteochondrosis)
  • Neuralgia and chronic pain conditions
  • Consequences of sports injuries and accidents on the musculoskeletal system
  • Respiratory or skin diseases
Radon thermal bath

The radon thermal water is our most important basic cure resource. The special tubs are filled with about 480l of thermal water. The temperature is 36 to 39°C and the bath takes about 15 to 20 minutes. In the thermal water the body becomes hyperthermic, which stimulates metabolic processes. The dissolved radon is absorbed by the skin and the respiratory system. It causes a release of the body’s own analgesic substances. Through regular baths the autonomic nervous system is enhanced.
