Salzburg, Austria

Nestled in the Austrian Alps, Bad Gastein was a spa destination more than 2,000 years ago, when the Romans discovered its hot springs. Perched more than 3,000 feet above sea level, overlooking a valley made for hiking and skiing, Bad Gastein can’t help but inspire wellness with its alpine air and waterfalls bursting beneath snow-capped mountains. Follow in the footsteps of the Romans and early Austrians, and enjoy a soak in Bad Gastein’s thermal waters or go for a walk in a flower-dotted mountain meadow.
