Gradonna Mountain Resort

This oasis sits beneath Austria’s highest mountain, Großglockner, and is not only a tranquil paradise but an ideal location for hikers and climbers who want to earn their respite. There is a generous range of treatments at the Gradonna, such as anti-ageing facials and soothing ‘Alpienne’ massages to knead out the knots from a hard day’s climb.

    Friedensreich Regentag Dunkelbunt Hundertwasser’s work is probably the best example of weird yet wonderful architecture in Vienna. As well as his famous wobbly apartment block in Vienna, he also designed some of the buildings around the Rogner Bad Blumau in Styria, making for a wonderfully surreal world. Around the spa there are a variety of outdoor thermal pools and massage and treatment packages available.
