The Spa Hotel Forsthofgut in Salzburger Land: The first waldSPA in Europe

Relaxation, energy and beauty with the power of the forest

The forest is our home. A place we have learned to love and where we once explored ourselves.

Even today we sometimes long for that feeling of the soft forest floor beneath our feet. We remember the intensive, undiluted scent of fresh pine needles. And we also know how many soothing and gentle sounds can be heard here - even in the supposed silence the forest has to offer.

The waldSPA in the Spa Hotel Forsthofgut, a natural place of tranquility in the Salzburger Land, pays tribute to the rich treasure directly at our doorstep and entices our guests to get back to its roots and find harmony within nature, in an especially gentle and soothing way.

Time for more waldSPA

Since May 2016 the Nature Hotel Forsthofgut delights its with the unique waldSPA.

Due to an extension of 2,000sqm we were able to enlarge our waldSPA up to 3,800sqm.

On top of a sauna landscape with 5 saunas, e.g. the 40sqm outdoor sauna with a view over the hotel's own game reserve, you will be amazed by the 25m long outdoor pool with a spectacular roof-top terrace, stylish relaxation rooms looking into the surrounding nature and a spacious tea lounge. A whirlpool with a view over the Leogang Rocky Mountains  ensures relaxing moments. Fitness enthusiasts can get their fill in the 300 m² waldSPA fitness with treadmills with a pine floor effect or on spinning bikes under the open sky.

To the Sauna world


In our waldSPA, we reflect on the power of indigenous nature that surrounds us and envelops the Forsthofgut. You can refuel with a bit of soothing Alpine energy not only while you're enjoying a treatment inside our waldSPA.

Forsthofgut's 30,000 m² garden also invites you to linger and relax.  There is a special power that eminates from our 1,500m² organic bathing pond with its tranquil reed islands. When you regard the breath-taking view from the yoga platform to the surrounding Leogang Rocky Mountains, deep breathing comes easily and allows your body to enjoy wonderful peace. Relax in nature, let yourself be pampered in the waldSPA or enjoy our vast garden. Forsthofgut is pure well-being!
