As far back as the time of the Kaisers, the “big players” of the world met here in the Gastein Valley and enjoyed the healing climate – its “summer freshness”. Wilhelm I. travelled here two dozen times for its spa treatments and was visited many times by Franz Josef I. and his Sisi. Today, Bad Gastein is still recognised as a medical healing region, primarily due to the powers of the waters.  It took 3 centuries for the rain water to trickle down 2,000 m deep into the earth’s surface. There, it warmed up, rose again and swelled 1,000 m above sea level from the mountain. The warmth supports blood circulation and the altitude of between 800 to 1200 m in the Gastein healing region promotes the supply of oxygen to the body. Radon, warmth and altitude in this combination are unique on a worldwide scale in terms of treatments combined with luxury breaks, all of which are on offer at http://www.europaeischerhof.at/index-en.htmlHotel Europäischer Hof***** , which is also only a stone’s throw away from the Gastein golf course.  It is one of the five best establishments of its kind in the Salzburg region.  As a special treat, there is the "beautiful game in Gastein" promotion. This entitles you to pay a “green fee” (reduced rate) at the Gastein, Zell am See and Goldegg golf clubs allowing you to experience beautifully wild golfing variety in the middle of countryside, with no equal in Austria. There is also a shuttle to transport sports men and women from the 5 star EUROPÄISCHER HOF to the respective golf courses.

The Ebner`s Waldhof am See Resort & Spa ****S has been in the business of alpine wellness for many years. Guests are treated using fresh, in-house hydrolates in its generously sized spa area and are pampered with homely wild herb and healing herbal baths. The Ebner family, in its third generation at the hotel, also places high importance on the use of local produce in its cuisine. Anything else will just not be added to the pot. The Ebners also offer guests an alpine fitness experience. Fitness trainer, Conny shows guests the most beautiful places on hiking and bike tours. They also have their own in-house golf course, which perfectly completes the fitness programme.
