The word Bad in the Vigaun town name owes it’s origins to the St. Barbara springs which rise up from a depth of 1,300 metres on their way to providing the Spa with its healing water. Above all, people suffering from diseases of the joints, the muscles or the spine appreciate the healing properties of the water. Learn more about the Tennegau Healing Water!

Right next to the Spa, the Kellerbauer Restaurant awaits its guests. Weather permitting, you can enjoy the selection of Austrian-Mediterranean cuisine in the idyllic atmosphere of the garden. There many of the foods and herbs are home grown which, by the way, then end up on the plate.
Insider’s Tip: Just a few steps away from the Kellerbauer, there is a beautiful 400 year old farmhouse. However, it’s not only for show: Erika Moser operates her Natural Apothecary, probably the most unusual gift shop in SalzburgerLand with beautiful and delicious things from nature.
One more water based speciality that you can enjoy and experience in Bad Vigaun is the unique Tauglgrieß wild river landscape. This protected nature reserve is home to rare species, such as the Sandpiper and the Little Ringed Plover, which find an ideal breeding ground on the gravel banks of the shore.
A dip in the icy clear water of the Taugl refreshes during the summer months. The large, flat Sun-heated rocks offer the chance to warm up afterwards.
The Roman bridge, which connects the neighbouring Kuchl to Bad Vigaun is historically valuable. Built in 1613, it is the oldest bridge in SalzburgerLand.
