It is one of Europe's leading spa resorts: there are the 17 thermal springs, emerging 1,000 meters above sea level at the foot of the Graukogel, with a temperature of between 45 and 51° Celsius, there are also Thermal Galleries in Böckstein, a former gold mine which is now the setting for cures in a super-heated environment helping Inflammatory, rheumatic illnesses, e.g. ankylosing spondylitis, chronic polyarthritis, degenerative and deformative joint diseases (arthrosis, spondylosis, osteochondrosis), neuralgia, chronic pain, consequences of sports and injuries from accidents involving the musculoskeletal system, respiratory problems.
Bad Gastein is one of few places where patients can get radon thermal water therapy. It heats up the body and as a result the metabolic processes are stimulated. The radon dissolved in the thermal water is absorbed into the body via the skin and via the airways, causing the body to release its own pain relievers.
