Bad Blumau, Austria
Beside the hills and rustic villages of rural Styria, Rogner Bad Blumau enlivens the landscape like a city conjured from the pages of Dr. Seuss. Created by the eccentric, Austrian artist, Hunnertwasser, the destination spa is a symphony of curvy walls, diversely shaped windows, leafy-roofed buildings, columns, domes and eye-popping splotches of color that meld into nature. Atop 2 mineral springs, the veritable interactive “work of art” encircles 11 pools and a complex of saunas. Prepare to spend your days in languid repose.
