Your thermal spa holiday in Bad Kleinkirchheim in Austria
Experience – relax – heal
More and more thermal spa enthusiasts see the autumn as an insider tip. What could be more enjoyable than ending the evening in the pleasantly warm thermal water after a hike by the clear autumn air of the Austrian Alps? In addition, the cooler temperatures and the shorter days make visiting the thermal spa even more inviting and pleasant.
Other benefits are that it is quieter at the thermal spas at this time of year and the healing thermal water has preventive properties. It strengthens your immune system and circulation, your connective tissue and your blood vessels, eases rheumatic diseases and arms you against infections.

The crypt of the St. Kathrein church is the source of the well-known "eye spring" of Bad Kleinkirchheim
In 1055 AD, the palsgrave Poto discovered the healing source whilst fleeing, hiding himself there from his captors. We still use this refuge today – albeit not fleeing the enemy but everyday stress.
In the Middle Ages this source that springs from the earth with a temperature of around 36° Celsius, rich in minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium, was referred to as the "eye spring". One washed one's eyes with it to preserve eyesight into old age. Due to arduous work in the so-called smoking kitchens, the eyes often suffered – the thermal water promised the necessary easing and healing. Right up until today, the thermal springs in Bad Kleinkirchheim supply the two public thermal baths. Furthermore, the low radon content in the healing water has a revitalising and beneficial effect also on children, the elderly and the weak.
Enjoy the pleasant warmth in the in-house wellness area of your wellness hotel Prägant or one of the two local thermal spas whilst watching the leaves outside gradually turning colourful.
