Recreation through activity


The opportunities in and around the big thermal swimming lake in our Relax World including ample space for active recreation. The large swimming area has all the room you could wish for to move about freely in the water. And with 50 m-long swimming lanes, you will be able to get as much physical exercise as you want. The shallow areas, on the other hand, promise all kinds of fun and play for those guests who don’t want to venture out too far. And some things that bathers are generally only able to experience at natural lakes, can now also be enjoyed at our spa resort: For example, at set times our guests can make their first attempts at stand-up paddling. And around the lake, sunbathing areas invite you to stretch out and relax. In the mood for a spot of yoga? The power of nature and water unites during revitalizing yoga sessions right next to the lake.

A retreat for guests seeking peace & quiet


Sauna World at Alpentherme Gastein has always been a refuge of peace and deep relaxation. With the addition of the small thermal swimming lake, yet another delightful facet has been added to this recreational gem. Between stimulating sauna sessions, you can now immerse yourself in pure thermal water. A new sauna with view of the lake and the Gastein mountains even turns time in the sauna into a nature experience in its own right. After the sauna infusion, when it’s time for a break, simply head for one of the exclusive lounge chairs out on a sunny lawn, and treat yourself to a short nap. 


Aquatic fun for children and families


Close by, though very much a realm unto itself, is our Family World. Here, families and children looking for anything but peace & quiet find just what they have been craving – that’s to say, fun and games in the water. For them, too, there is a new attraction to add to the in- and outdoor family pools. Awaiting them now is a 4-lane, approximately 30 meters-long wave slide. On hot summer days, “water babies” – big and small – can enjoy refreshing, undulating rides all the way to the bottom. And how about a family race? Enjoyment in and by the water, guaranteed to set the pulses of the youngsters and youngsters-at-heart racing with excitement.
