Studies and balneological assessment of the bathing peat from Hochmoos healing moor bath:

In accordance with Salzburg's act on 'natural health-promoting substances and spas' (Heilvorkommen- und Kurortegesetz), prescribed analysis was carried out by the Institute of Balneology, at the University of Graz by Dr. Herbert Greschonig in June 2012. In summary,  the peat from Hochmoos moor pool was judged to be a well established, predominantly organic, upland moor peat. It has a very good water retention capacity, good thermophysical properties and favourable chemical and physical properties. The upland moor at Bad Hochmoos is hygienically pure and of balneological importance.
