The healthy thermal water & the healing cave
Health, bubbling from the depths
The Gasteiner Thermen, whose water is piped directly to our spa hotel in Bad Hofgastein, gushes from 17 different springs at the foot of the Graukogel. Most are located at an altitude between 1034 and 937 m, have a constant temperature of over 44 ° C and a constant content of the noble gas radon, which is at about 52-66.2 nCi/l.
The Gastein thermal water is a rather low-mineral water. In contrast to the many cold springs in the Gastein Valley, such as the world famous Gastein mineral water.
Your organism adapts to the altitude of the Bad Hofgastein spa region (800 m - 1200 m).
More red blood cells are produced and the ability to deliver oxygen to the tissue is increased. With suitably selected movement therapies you effectively increase your performance.
