The Eisvogel hotel and spa is located in Lower Bavaria in the heart of the Hallertau region, which is famous for growing hops. This 4-star hotel, run by the Zettl-Feldmann family, is situated in the outskirts of the village and close to the River Abens. It has a long standing tradition and boasts a 7,000 m² garden surrounded by mature trees.
Hallertau hops, known as Halltertau Hopfen in German,are an essential part of the HopfenWell concept. Although traditionally Hallertau hops are used in the brewery industry, the health benefits are increasingly being appreciated for its soothing effect. The Eisvogel wellness area offers various treatments that use hops like a calming hops oil bath, a relaxing cream wrap or a hops salt exfoliation, which encourages the skin to become taut. The Eisvogel spa’s guests can additionally discover other natural remedies from the region like sulphuric and thermal spring water. A wellness treatment programme can be individually tailored to suit guests’ needs.
The 1,600m² Eisvogel spa, with its views across the banks of the River Danube, is an ideal place for a relaxed holiday. It has an indoor pool, an infrared sauna, Finnish sauna, salt steam bath and a gym in the bath house.
Pure enjoyment is the motto of the distinctive Eisvogel cuisine. Even food and drink enthusiasts across the Bad Gögging border appreciate the typical Bavarian country house style cooking. Regional and seasonal ingredients are selected to create classic Bavarian specialities. During the spring, guests can try the home grown asparagus and strawberries from the farm and in summer there are an abundance of home grown fruit and vegetables on offer.
The family run Eisvogel hotel makes an impression with its secluded location on the outskirts of Bad Gögging. A 7,000 m² garden surrounded by mature trees offers enough space for guests to find their favourite spot – whether it’s by the River Abens, in the silent room or the library.
The regional hops play an important role in the Eisvogel spa. Guests have a large choice of authentic treatments including a calming hops bath, a relaxation massage or a hops salt exfoliation.
Those who prefer being active can challenge themselves on the Eisvogel crazy golf course - not to be compared to classic crazy golf! The course has been created around the idea of a traditional golf course and has artificial grass, wider runs and natural obstacles like trees, water and rocks. The rule of play has also taken on that of the traditional game and is played using a putter and an original golf ball.
An important element of the Eisvogel hotel is the fresh, regional, organically grown fruit and vegetables supplied directly by the in-house farm shop.
The Eisvogel wellness hotel has a spa area of about 1,600m², which includes 15 treatment rooms, two of which are spacious spa suites. The 12 x 6m indoor pool overlooks the banks of the River Danube and includes water jets for resistance swimming. There are also a variety of saunas like a Finnish sauna, salt steam bath and an infrared sauna as well as a well-equipped gym.
In addition to the more classic beauty treatments on offer at the Eisvogel hotel, you can also discover something a bit different with a natural sulphuric bath, a natural mud moor wrap or a hops bath.
Cosmetic treatments are also available like Botox or procedures using hyaluronic acid filler. All treatments are carried out after a thorough consultation and under professional supervision of a doctor.
The Eisvogel hotel has a 36m² gym area - including 4 endurance machines, 1 power machine and a studio for classes.
