Thermal water analysis
Kurzentrum Bad Hofgastein
Benefit from the natural warmth of our thermal waters during your health vacation
The water from Gastein's hot springs - central to therapy approaches at the Bad Hofgastein cure and rehabilitation center – is drawn from 16 springs at the foot of the Graukogel – 1 million liters per day - from the Elisabethquelle.
The warm water is weakly mineralized and enriched with natural radon. As a result, the body's immune system is stimulated. The natural warmth of the water used in treatments at Kurzentrum Bad Hofgastein also promotes better blood circulation.
