Austria Wellness Holiday

Rejuvenate and recharge in Austria departing 2 June 2019

On this fabulous tour you will stay in the luxury of the Elisabethpark Hotel right in the heart of Bad Gastein and be introduced to the wonder of the healing tunnel that is known as the Gasteiner Heilstollen. The healing tunnel is so effective in the relief of certain ailments that the major insurance companies in both Austria and Germany cover their patients to visit the tunnel.

Bad Gastein:
The name “Bad” means “spa”, reflecting the town’s history as a spa resort. In the midst of the Hohe Tauern National Park, Bad Gastein basks in fresh mountain air and a fog-free setting at 1,000 meters above sea level. This is a world-renowned spa town with a very special flair: relaxation and recreation in pure mountain air, combined with an ideal highaltitude climate and Gastein’s thermal waters. All will guarantee you a vacation that is certain to exceed your highest expectations!

Elisabethpark Hotel:
The stunning four star, Elisabethpark Hotel, is a traditional, innovative hotel with a dignified ambiance located in the centre of Bad Gastein. In 2008 the hotel was completely renovated. All rooms are modern in décor and furnishings and feature a bath or shower, toilet, hairdryer, bathrobe and slippers, mini-bar, radio, telephone, satellite TV, Internet connection, a safe and a balcony. Guests can enjoy the indoor swimming pool, fitness facilities, sauna, steam bath and sunning lawn and large relaxation area in the Fitness and Wellness Centre. There is also a lobby with an open fireplace and day room to relax in. Guests can make use of the Internet corner, Caféhaus Sissy and dine in the panoramic restaurant, the à la Carte restaurant and enjoy drinks in the cliff bar. There is also a whisky and cigar lounge at the Elisabethpark.

The Curative Tunnel:
The atmosphere within the Heilstollen in Gastein is unique and exists nowhere else in the world. A special train takes you 2.5km into the mountain, where the warmth and humidity elevate the body’s temperature to 38°C, which increases the uptake of radon. Radon is one of the noble gases, which accelerates cell metabolism through its short-wave rays. The varying temperatures and humidity levels present at different levels, or “stations”, of the Heilstollen, allow treatments to be tailor-made according to the condition and the ability of the patient to cope with the heat. This natural therapy is under constant medical observation and can be used in the treatment of the following conditions:
» Ankylosing Spondylitis
» Fibro-myalgia
» Respiratory disorders (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, bronchial asthma, sinusitis)
» Problems with the regeneration, circulation & immunological, balance of the skin (psoriasis vulgaris, neuro-dermatitis, sklerodermie)
» Rheumatoid arthritis
» Degenerative spinal conditions
» Allergies
