The Best Spas and Wellness Hotels in Austria

Bio und Wellness Hotel Stanglwirt, Thalasso, in Austria

World-class Wellness at Austria's Top Spas

Due to the potent minerals found in local waters, Austrian thermal spas have gained attention for their healing and restorative powers. In more recent years, the country's spa and wellness hotels have drawn inspiration from around the world to provide the best pampering possible. Water's relaxing ability is showcased in saunas and hammams, but today spas also offer Ayurvedic applications, thalasso, shiatsu, Thai massage and hot stone treatments. Perched in mountain ranges or beside charming lakes, Austria's best spas provide world-class care amid unique scenery.
