Many tourists visit the Wilder Kaiser in Tyrol. At Stanglwirt biohotel the Wilder Kaiser visits the hotel guests. Right at the swimming pool.
The numbers speak for themselves: 750 tonnes of rock were necessary to build the rock pool with its phenomenal scenery. Dozens of trucks brought the rocks directly from the mountain. Planning, digging as well as the transport and construction took three years. The floor tiles consist of 200 million-year-old silver quartz dolomite. The new red sandstone comes from the foot of the Wilder Kaiser, but for the white chalk dolomite rocks they had to climb up to 1,000 metres above sea level. Balthasar Hauser, the visionary inventor of the rock pool: “One has to look for what is there and make something out of it.”
So he made something out of the enormous mountain: Hauser constructed a massive dome with many small and big grottos, caves and waterfalls. It is a unique experience that is more than just a sight to see: It roars and splashes everywhere, the hard rocks are witnesses to the long and not always easy history of this country. The holistic experience is rounded off by pure spring water. Just like in the entire hotel, only top-grade water from their own spring is used for the rock pool. Of course the water quality is constantly monitored and checked.
The enormous rocks and purest water are just two of the many ingredients which make a visit to the rock pool an unforgettable experience. There are islands, with their lush vegetation that thrives magnificently around here, which invite you to stay a while and relax. The huge window provides a majestic view of the Wilder Kaiser and the panorama behind the elaborate vaulted roof ends with the stars in the Tyrolean night sky. Tearing yourself away and climbing the stairs to the sauna world, where further sensations await also comes highly recommended - but that is a different story.
