This Thermal Spa complex is truly and utterly amazing, exceeding all our expectations. It's big, not overcrowded and amazingly well thought out by the architects, featuring luxuries like all-round floor heating! Surrounded by the Alps while even small kids are perfectly catered for. Five stars, really. One of those hidden treasures not yet discovered 'en masse'.

When you enter, you get a wrist band with a chip that give you access to the pools, access to complimentary lockers and serves as a credit card when buying food at the pool restaurants. Clever, really. Trust the Germans.

There is the family pool and the thermal pool, I recommend you buy a ticket that includes access to both. The family pool was extremely clean with a really cool long slide that the kids loved, you can use it with or without a raft. Plenty of sun loungers and the food in the (wet) restaurant was very reasonably priced, delicious and well presented (around euro 4 for a big bowl of Goulash soup). Just outside there are stairs that lead to an underground cave pool that has the same salt content as the Dead Sea, so you can literally float and relax. Just next to it was the beautiful steam room, built like a cave with relaxing lighting. My two year old LOVED the kid's wet play area and the kid's pool. He rarely plays on his own, but here we had trouble getting him out.

The Thermal Spa on the other side was just as nice or even better, with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, especially the outside part of the Spa was an experience not easily forgotten (seeing the water vapour rising up while it was snowing was fun).

Everyone came out truly satisfied and feeling renewed, and we decided to make a second visit that same week. Highly recommended.

I expect I'm easily impressed because I haven't been to a real spa before, but I was amazed by this place. It's very close to Salzburg, in the most gorgeous setting you can imagine. The sparkling clean Rupertus Therme features I don't know how many salt pools at various temperatures and levels of salinity. (There's also a cold-water pool you can hop into after the hot pool, and let me tell you, it provides a real shock to the system.) In the salt grotto, which reminds me a little of a sensory deprivation tank, the salinity is so high that you have to hang on to a ledge at the side of the pool to keep from bobbing off into the middle of the pool. It's a bit kitschy--piped-in music, lava-lamp-type imagery on the "cave" walls--but it's totally relaxing if you just close your eyes and float. Nobody seemed to want to leave the place. The steam cave is very dramatic--pretty much can't see a thing except for little floor lights. My favorite part, though, was the big outdoor pool. It's really something to swim or float leisurely through steaming-hot salt water and gaze up at the gorgeous snowy Alps rising above you. Deluxe.

My husband & I recently spent a very relaxing afternoon here at the Rupertus Therme. For an entire day, it only cost 28 euro a person -- well worth it! I wish that we could go back!

From the steaming outdoor pools looking onto the beautiful Alps to the many saunas, this Spa was fantastic! Our very favorite was the Saltwater Grotto, where we literally floated with ease for 45 minutes in the saltwater pool surrounded by relaxing music, low lights, & cave-like features. Aaah.

There was a large family area of the Spa also, with a big pool, water slide, etc.

Everything was extremely clean & well maintained. So relaxing!

We've been to the Rupertus Therme three times now voer the past two years. We travel from Northern Italy five hours to get there because it's the best spa around and set in a beautiful scenic area. This summer, they completed a big expansion by adding a whole new section specifically for families and children. The new area has a huge pool for lap swimming as well as an additional thermal pool and area for kids. There is also a giant tube to go down in big inner-tubes. We're in our 50s and had a lot of fun doing it over and over. Go on a weekday to avoid the kids mobbing that part of the attraction. The addition of this family area means that the regular spa area is less crowded. We spent two full days with a day of hiking in between. We added in the sauna area (no clothes allowed) on the second day and if you like steams and saunas, this place can't be beat. All sections, regular spa, family area and sauna now have more seating, more areas with comfortable lounge chairs, etc. You're not allowed to bring in your own food (though we did) but there are restaurants where you can purchase food and drink. The prices seemed pretty reasonable. The basic price for the therme covers four hours, but for a mere 3 Euro more, you can stay all day. We love staying late as it's quite beautiful all lit up at night and it gets quieter later at night as well. Best time to visit is on weekdays. We were there on Thanksgiving day and felt like we had the place practically to ourselves!
