Ther­mal swim­ming, Gastein val­ley, Aus­tria

Friday - - Travel -

Alpentherme Gastein, a spa in Aus­tria’s Gastein val­ley, near Salzburg, has an im­pres­sive new ad­di­tion planned for this sum­mer: Two new ther­mal swim­ming lakes. The lakes have taken two years to com­plete and cost Dh18 mil­lion. The spring-fed lakes (1,300 and 370 square me­tres) are re­freshed daily from the Hohe Tauern moun­tains and are kept clean by an or­ganic cleans­ing sys­tem, mean­ing no chlo­rine or sting­ing eyes. The fam­ily area of the re­sort has also seen fun new ad­di­tions, in­clud­ing a four-lane, 28-me­tre wave slide and a new tod­dler-and-ba­bies pool. All this can be en­joyed with the Alpine peaks of Salzburg­er­land adorn­ing the sky­line.

Day ticket Dh140 adult, Dh80 chil­dren, fam­ily Dh340, alpentherme.com . For bud­get to five-star ho­tels, self-cater­ing apart­ments and farm-stays visit gastein.com
