Kneipp hydrotherapy facilities in Pitztal

You could hardly think of a nicer name for the hamlet of “Stillebach“, German for “quiet brook“. Stillebach is home to Pitztal’s water world. The Klockele waterfall rushes to the ground over steep cliffs, surrounded by a picturesque mountain backdrop. Enjoy recreation at the idyllic swimming lake with large lawns to sunbathe and Kneipp hydrotherapy facilities that promise a relaxing treat to your feet.

Sebastian Kneipp, a Bavarian priest, discovered the healing qualities of water over 125 years ago. His “Kneipp Cure“, a system of healing involving the application of water through various methods, temperatures and pressures, is still hugely popular across Europe.

At the centre of the water world are the Kneipp facilities with cold water basins for arms, hands and feet and a water treading pool. Immerse your legs in cool water in the treading pool and you will leave with a tingly sensation while your hands and arms are gently massaged by the cool water. Relax after your hydrotherapy “treatment“ on a large, sunny and quiet lawn.
Changing rooms, information board with Kneipp hydrotherapy instructions and a refreshing drinking water fountain round off this relaxing experience.  

The Kneipp facilities are open to our guests from Mid-June to the end of September.

The impressive Klockelefall waterfall is illuminated at night. It can easily be reached from Stillebach and features beautiful panoramic views.

Description for wheelchair users:
Directly adjacent to Biohotel Stillebach in the hamlet of the same name you can find lovingly designed Kneipp hydrotherapy facilities. They can be explored on a circular route dedicated to the five senses in keeping with Kneipp’s concept. The path around the Kneipp facilities is either tarmac or gravel in places but is wheelchair-accessible. The first part of the Kneipp facilities including the hand and foot baths and the so-called “stork a” are accessible via a tarmac path while the bathing lake, the lakeside bar “Seebar”, the children’s playground and the herb and vegetable gardens are only accessible by a gravel path. Some route sections have a gradient of more than 6%. In one place a diagonal water bar crosses the path that is difficult to get across without assistance.
After the circular route, Biohotel Stillebach with its restaurant and sun terrace invites to take a break. The restaurant can be accessed directly via the terrace across a 5 cm high ledge. There is no disabled toilet in the hotel itself, however, the Kneipp facilities have public toilets with wheelchair-access directly next to the hotel. The path to the toilets is partly tarmac and partly unpaved and the final stretch is accessed by a wooden ramp with a short, steep 18% gradient. Access is via an easy access door opening inwards. The passageway to the toilet is 89 cm wide, with the toilet doors opening to the outside with a width of 85 cm. The toilet cubicle is spacious but does not have a full 150 cm turning circle.
