Rogner-Bad Blumau Hotel & Spa

Bad Blumau

The whimsical architecture of this resort-designed by famed Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser- wowed many of our readers: Grass grows on the roof, walls and floors are curved, a mix of colors decorate the facade, and the 312 guest rooms are organized in a labyrinth-like pattern. But the hotel, which opened in 1997, draws the most attention for its hot springs, which are enjoyed by guests of all ages. Also on site is a state-ofthe-art fitness center, nine restaurants and lounges, and Wunderschön, the spa's beauty center. After a day at the soothing springs, many guests head here for a final bit of relaxation, offered in the form of massage, aromatherapy, and other spa staples.
