Home to a natural spring with strongly sulphurous water, Bad Häring is the only official spa town in Tirol and is located near the town of Kufstein.
Bad Häring near Kufstein was named Tirol’s first spa town in 1996 thanks to its natural spring from which bubbles water with a strong sulphur concentration. While many visitors come to the area for invigorating spa treatments, others simply wish to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this idyllic former mining village with 2,600 residents located on a sunny plateau above the Inntal Valley, surrounded by forests and meadows. The village centre is typically Tirolean with its church, cafés, old farmhouses and small shops. There is a large network of walking trails connecting the village to interesting landscapes such as the Haslach Moor and other outdoor highlights like the open-air Kneipp water therapy pools at the Bad Häringer Wasserfall. Far from main transport routes, such locations are the ideal place to get away from it all and enjoy absolute peace and quiet. One must-see attraction is the mining museum documenting the history of brown coal mining in the area, which dates back to the 18th century. Wintersports enthusiasts can look forward to a wide range of pistes catering for all abilities in the nearby SkiWelt Wilder Kaiser – Brixental area, Austria’s largest interconnected ski resort.
