Healing Powers of Precious Stones

The power of gemrocks at the hotel Kristall

Crystals and precious stones were a source of fascination and inspiration for our grandparents as well, which is why, more than 50 years ago, they gave their newly built hotel & guesthouse the name "Kristall".

You will discover restful sleep in our Energy Rooms, which we have dedicated to the precious stones "Rock Crystal“, "Amethyst" and that stone of love, "Rose Quartz". You can also gaze upon these crystals and precious stones throughout our hotel, succumbing to their fascination, allowing them to "touch" you personally. Experience life to the max as you explore the countryside of Zillertal's mountain world, and as you get to know our Tyrolean folk customs and culture. You will find your way back to your own personal rhythm, perhaps during an aromatic massage with precious stones, or as you relax and pause for thought in our wellness area, with its mineral energy centers.

Furthermore, with every meal at the hotel and in the Kristall Wellness Oasis itself, we serve you reenergized, revitalized waters using technology developed by Johann Grander.
