Overview

Embark on a detoxing escape at VIVAMAYR Altaussee, one of the most luxurious health spas in the world. It’s idyllically located overlooking the picturesque Lake Altaussee and at the foot of Mountain Loser and the Austrian Alps. The Mayr Method is a famous programme of detoxification developed by Dr F.X Mayr in Austria who realised that long-term health stems from a healthy gut. Through a combination of healthy diet, cutting-edge treatments and physical fitness, the overall goal is to increase wellbeing, strengthen the immune system and improve mental and physical performance. Loosing weight isn’t the focus here but it does happen as a result of the detox programme.

When to go

The warmest months are June, July and August. July is usually the wettest month with most rainfall. October is usually the driest month. The coldest months are December, January and February.

What’s on the menu

Nutrition is one of the most important aspects of a stay at VIVAMAYR. With a focus on detox, the award-winning chefs prepare organic and locally sourced produce and beautifully create and display each dish. Each guest has a personalised diet plan which is designed with the nutritionist. The main goal of the Mayr Cure is to improve the digestive system and digestive performance and this is often achieved through calm chewing. To allow full focus on eating, technology is not permitted in the restaurant.
