Like Germany, Austria also has a long tradition in the spa arena. The wellness hotels in Austria offer wellness packages of the highest standard. What typify Austria, as well as the high level of service and quality of wellness facilities, is the fresh mountain air, the homemade local products and local traditions, which make a spa trip to Austria very special. We went on a search for typical Austrian treatments such as herbal stamp massage (with special Alpine herbs), steam, hay and ‘molkebaden’ and of course, Kneipp treatments. Another of Austria’s selling points is the opportunity to combine wellness with sport (skiing, cross country skiing or golf).
