Hot thermal springs
When drilling for petrol in the 1970ies, hot thermal springs were found. This discovery turned the province of Styria into a true “hot water wonderland”.
Between 1974 and 2006 six thermal resorts came into being. Each of them is fed by several highly mineralised thermal springs from varying depths.
The thermal springs are the remedy for medical complaints on the one hand but also ideal for wellness treatments in pleasantly warm water on the other hand. Guests will find recovery and relaxation. Children in particular will have fun.
