Badgastein Things to Do: 16 reviews and 31 photos


Bad Gastein has been a thermal resort for many years, because of its waters that spring from the earth at a temperature between 44 and 47 degrees Celsius. There are today 17 of these springs, in the Badberg, and they provide water for the spas. However, not all the thermal water is used for this business. Some of it is free and flows from two fountains, not far from each other.
Fountains with warm water may be welcome when you need to wash you hands. However, warm water is not ideal if you are thirsty on a hot summer day. Don't worry, there are also other fountains around, with cold mountain water.

Address: Kaiser-Franz-Josef Strasse
Directions: The Mozart fountain is in a small public garden near the Kristophorus church, the other one is not far away, on the other side of the street.
