Every day 3.9 million litres of hot water gush from 65 thermal springs in the mountain spa resort of Leukerbad. These thermal springs have led to the development of tourism in Leukerbad and made it one of the biggest spa and wellness resorts in Switzerland. Apart from a medical rehabilitation centre, its attractions now include numerous public thermal baths.

After their sporting activities, neither skiers in winter nor hikers in summer miss the chance to regenerate in the warm, relaxing water. The centre of Leukerbad is traffic-free and the Leukerbad Sports Arena offers plenty of indoor sports facilities to enjoy all-year round, whatever the weather.

Summer

Two cableways connect this holiday resort, tucked away in the valley basin, with the hiking terrains of the Gemmi Pass and Torrent. An ancient mule track leads from Leukerbad via the Gemmi Pass and along the idyllic Daubensee to Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. The Gemmi Pass also gives access to what is probably the longest and most challenging climbing path in Switzerland, with long, vertical ‘ladders’ on the Dabenhorn, almost 3000 metres high (2943 m).

A dramatic thermal canyon walk leads along rock walls to the 35m waterfall. You feel the energy, and the atmosphere is rich in poetry: the essence of this thermal spa resort.
