Is swimming in a lake part of your perfect vacation? But wouldn’t it be great if the water wasn’t quite so cold?

Do you dream of taking a swim in warm, natural water, but the nearby lakes are generally too cold for you, even in a Neoprene suit? Not to worry. Traveling to Bali, the Maldives or another exotic destination isn’t your only option anymore. Thanks to Gastein’s thermal swimming lakes, we now have the perfect way to satisfy your yearning. Finally, you can enjoy a swim in warm water, even here in Austria, from the beginning of May until late October. True to the motto: Why roam to distant climes, when something so good is so close at hand.
Since July 1st, the days of freezing in chilly lakes are over for good. Two new swimming lakes filled with thermal water were created in the outdoor area of Alpentherme Gastein. The gloriously warm water in the lakes comes fresh from the mountains every single day. Feel the astonishing power of nature that is captured in every drop of Gastein thermal water.
