    The 5-star Hotel & Spa “Der Steirerhof” in Bad Walterdorf in Austria has recently finished the most intensive investment in quality since the opening of the hotel.Situtated in a famous region of thermal salt springs, the hotel is surrounded by 60.000 m² of natural herb gardens, which are an essential part of the Spa concept of the hotel. On request, the guests can have guided tours through the herb gartens to learn about the healing powers of the hundreds of different herbs.

    In economically diffult times, the owners invested about 4 million Euros only in the quality of the hotel, without adding any additional room or beds. After the refurbishment the concept of the rooms is now based on cherrywood furniture and warm-coloured fabrics.

    The elegant table- and floorlamps of Baulmann Leuchten do match this concept with its natural loom-surfaces and the cream-white shades. The use of energiesaving flourescent lamps and LED reading-lights do also consider the aspect of climate protection.
