Uniqe Worldwide - Heilstollen therapy in Gastein

The healing climate of the Gastein Heilstollen galleries is unique worldwide.
Due to their high success rate, the healing galleries are considered the most effective form of therapy and spa treatment in Gastein valley. The exceptional effect is attributed to the naturally occurring combination of the following three healing factors or active agents:

  • Natural radon content of 44 kBq/m³ in the Heilstollen air (on average)
  • Warmth with an air temperature of 37.0 to 41.5° Celsius
  • Relative humidity of 70 to almost 100 %


The Heilstollen train takes you ca. 2.5 km into the depths of the mountain. The heat and high humidity heat the body up to a temperature of 38o Celsius, which in turn increases the absorption of radon. The natural noble gas, radon, stimulates cell metabolism with its short-duration emissions. The varying temperatures and levels of humidity in the individual therapy stations allow treatments to be individually customized according to the patient’s symptomology and heat tolerance.

Holistic Treatment Concept

Allevation of pain, active and passive therapy, instruction and information.

A holistic cure/therapy/rehabilitation involves more than just pain therapy, reduction of inflammation, and stabilization of the immune system, which can be achieved with sessions in the healing galleries. A holistic therapy offer focuses on 5 pillars:

Allevation of pain

Radon, heat, and high humidity.

These three features are found naturally within the Radhausberg mountain where the Heilstollen (literally meaning « healing gallery ») is located. In combination, they create a natural and unique healing atmosphere. They provide long-lasting benefits to those suffering from locomotor disorders, as well as skin and respiratory conditions. In addition, the treatment stabilizes the immune system. Longlasting alleviation of pain and a reduced need for medication are the scientifically proven benefits of the Heilstollen.
