Swimming in a lake is simply part of the perfect vacation for you, if the water wasn't sometimes soooo cold?
You dream of going swimming in warm, natural water, but the lake nearby is still too cold even with a wetsuit? Don't worry, emigrating to Bali, the Maldives or another warmer country is no longer the only option to finally achieve what you long for in summer as well as in winter. The Gastein thermal water bathing lakes in Salzburger Land, put an end to the longing and waiting. Finally, bathing in warm water, from the beginning of May to the end of October, is also possible in Austria. True to the motto: Why go far, when the good is so close.
Since summer 2017, freezing during summer lake enjoyment is over. Two new thermal water bathing lakes have been created in the outdoor area of the Alpentherme Gastein. A novelty in the world of thermal baths and lakes. Because the water of the lakes comes fresh from the mountains every day. Can you feel the power of nature contained in the genuine Gastein thermal water? Whether action or relaxation at the wellness and SPA - on a vacation in the province of Salzburg you can combine it all.
The smaller of the two thermal water bathing lakes with about 370 square meters is available to the guests of Sauna World. Relax your body and mind in the fresh air while you do your laps in the invigorating thermal water. Are you ready for another sauna session? How about the new sauna with a view of the lake and the Gastein mountains? Afterwards, the loungers on the sunbathing lawn invite you to sweat and snooze.
Enough space to do your swimming laps is offered by the 1,300 square meter second thermal water bathing lake in the Relax World of the Alpentherme Gastein.
Your children will be happy: A new attraction sweetens the summer months for the smallest bathers! Since June 2021, there has been an outdoor toddler pool. In addition, a 4-lane wave slide offers fun for four. On the interconnected lanes you can slide at the same time around the bet. So it will certainly not be boring on the 30 meter long slide.
