Allow us to pamper you to the fullest with our treatments. And by the way, our treatment rooms are all named after Carinthian herbs and flowers. The reason for this is that in addition to classic treatments, our Acquapura SPA offers a number of carefully selected Carinthian wellness treatments and special herbal extractions in the sauna. These are only available here and are based on ancient traditions and a great love of nature.

We offer the following treatments in our Carinthian medicinal plant rooms:
  • Hayflower: Soft pack treatments
  • Wulfenia: Romantic SPA treatments for two + 4 seasons SPA packages
  • Marigold: Treatments with hot stones and massages
  • Mountain arnica and camomile: Massages
  • Althaea: Cosmetic studio



Movement is the best recipe for feeling good. Here on the Sonnenalpe, we offer many ways of participating in your favorite sport. Depending on the time of year and the weather, working out and relaxation is on the program.

There are fitness classes for both beginners and advanced athletes, along with a modern weight room in our fitness centre. Fun is front and centre during all of our sports activities. We have introduced fitness classes, including:
