Highlights and Sights

The Kneipp town of Bad Leonfelden, located in the Upper-Austrian region Mühlviertel only 30 km away from Austria's cultural capital Linz, is well-known because of its unmistakable charm. Anyone searching for a relaxing holiday will appreciate the many walking routes surrounding Falkensteiner Hotel & Spa Bad Leonfelden and the Bohemian forest which is practically on our doorstep. While some of our guests take pleasure in exploring by foot, others prefer to discover the countryside while cycling. Magnificent farmhouses, well-maintained castles and splendid palaces can all be found in the Mühlviertel – and you are invited to come and discover all of this and more.
