The Romans were among the first to recognise the healing properties of the hot springs of Leukerbad. This thermal spa resort lies well protected in a Valais side valley and is now a popular destination for wellness and sports’ enthusiasts.
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.
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.
During the summer and autumn vacation periods, we are offering a supervised children’s programme for children from 4 to 14. With a guest card, which is included in every overnight stay, participation in the Thermi programme is free of charge.
And our mascot Thermi, a pure and simple drop of water, is a funny, entertaining and child-loving bod - sure to keep kids both big and small engrossed in his adventures.
Even the Ancient Romans appreciated the hot springs of Leukerbad and took the waters both to forget the stress of their increasingly hectic everyday lives and to replenish their stocks of energy. Experience the power of the mountains! Whether in winter or in summer, the Torrent and Gemmi Pass both boast a wide range of sports opportunities as well as numerous hiking trails; and if the weather is poor, there is an indoor sports arena, too, plus the pleasure of looking forward to the relaxation to follow – in any one of 30 thermal pools full of bubbling hot spring water, available for your indulgence 365 days of the year! And what could be pleasanter than relaxing in a jacuzzi or a steam bath while admiring the impressive rocky arena of the Gemmi with which Leukerbad is surrounded?
