The Rogner Bad Blumau was designed by one of Austria’s most famous avant-garde artists Friedensreich Hundertwasser and unites therapeutic springs, sauna worlds, a hotel and a park to create a harmonious, sustainable total work of art.
Built over a hot spring with the highest mineral content of any in Europe, it certainly offers visitors the opportunity to take advantage of nature’s healing properties, whether by bathing in one of its eight thermal pools or indulging in one of the many therapeutic treatments derived from locally sourced products such as pumpkin, grape, apple and elderberry.
But it is its holistic approach to sustainability that really makes it stand out. “The aim of the spa when it was conceived by Robert Rogner in 1993 was to integrate it harmoniously with nature and within the local communities,” says general manager Hannes Czeitschner.
Aiming to create a synergy between man, nature and architecture, its designer, the Austrian artist and environmental champion Friedensreich Hundertwasser, devised an enchanting, fairytale exterior and a wonderfully meandering interior where straight edges have no place and none of its 2,400 windows are the same.
