Culture Trip

Austria’s spa culture is one of the reasons why the country is bearable in the winter months and if you’re turning a year older during your trip, then you should be sure to visit the spas, as some offer entrance free of charge for guests celebrating. Take your ID, slip into your birthday suit and head into steamy waters for a rejuvenating experience.

1. Ther­me AQUALUX


Beautiful scenery surrounding the spa
With an outdoor pool with thermal temperatures, the backdrop of the Styrian mountains to enjoy, and a cosy indoor ‘massage pool’, it shouldn’t take too much convincing to stop by Therme AQUALUX on your birthday if visiting the surrounding areas. Various treatment packages are available and there is a children’s area if you have your family in tow.

Another attractive quality of Parktherme is its location in one of the best wine regions in Austria, meaning you can treat yourself to a birthday glass of red or white after your visit.
