The Road to Health at Mayr Health Spa

The Mayr Health Spa offers its guests tailor-made regeneration programmes all based around the teachings and intensive medical care developed by the Austrian doctor and research scientist Dr Franz Xaver Mayr. This method has been practised for over a century and is officially recognised by the Austrian General Medical Council.

Mayr Health Spa

The spa is situated on the south bank of Carinthia’s largest lake in Dellach, South Austria and was built in 1936 by Englishman Major Foster. It is situated in one of the most beautiful, sunny and peaceful spots on Lake Wörth. This location provides the ideal environment for intensive relaxation and regeneration.

The Mayr Health Spa team of medical specialists were taught the F. X. Mayr method of diagnosis and therapy by one of Dr Mayr’s most highly respected pupils, Dr Erich Rauch.  The F. X. Mayr cure is based on the recognition that a malfunctioning of the intestines is the cause of most physical and emotional disorders. With the help of special methods of diagnosis, the F. X. Mayr doctor can discover the dysfunction of organs much earlier than the usual diagnostic methods. The doctor then tailor-makes an individual therapy programme and diet for each guest.

Depending on the results of diagnosis, the dietary plan varies between healing fasts, the milk-bread roll cure or mild forms of diet which serve to purify and detoxify the intestines. Many forms of treatment, such as different exercise therapies, Nordic walking with special trainers, mental training, relaxation programmes, hydrotherapies, special massages and special blood checks and intravenous infusions supplement the programme.

Teaching a healthier way of nutrition and lifestyle concludes the treatment, which should ideally last for three to four weeks. The diet-chef at The Mayr & More gives guests cooking demonstrations to teach the preparation of delicious, wholesome, easy-to-digest dishes in the hotel kitchen.

Plenty of exercise in the fresh air is a part of the F. X. Mayr treatment. The unspoilt landscape around Lake Wörth offers rambling, mountain hiking or cycling. Golfers are particularly at home here: the 18-hole Dellach golf course, with the second oldest golf club in Austria, adjoins The Mayr & More. There are tennis courts in the immediate vicinity of the hotel. The guests of The Mayr Health Spa can also relax in the hotel’s indoor swimming pool, steam bath, solarium and sauna. In the summer, Lake Wörth, with its pleasant water temperature of about 24 – 26°C, is a great attraction.

While art enthusiasts can enjoy the Carinthian Summer theatre and concert programme, in winter, the Carinthian natural landscape offers adrenaline junkies alpine-skiing, cross-country skiing and ice-skating.

The Mayr Health Spa has a total of 63 rooms, including single and double rooms and eight apartments with their own gardens overlooking the lake. All the rooms have been designed to reflect the atmosphere and warmth of the traditional, half-timbered style of building. All rooms have an en-suite bathroom, radio, telephone and televisions and most have a balcony or terrace.
