    • On average, the human body consists of 67% water. It is therefore not surprising that water also plays a decisive role in terms of health.

      The beneficial warmth of moor, fango and mud was discovered early on. Mud baths were documented as a natural remedy as early as the 14th century.

      The climate has long had a major influence on well-being. Those seeking relaxation are most likely to find it in an environment with a balanced temperature and constant humidity.

      Kneipp cures are probably among the best-known water treatments. However, Kneipp therapy also includes nutrition, herbs, exercise and inner balance in addition to the water pillar.

Spas and health resorts in BW

With over 12.5 million overnight stays, the spas and health resorts of Baden-Württemberg make a significant contribution to the success of the tourism state of Baden-Württemberg. They generate a gross turnover of around 3.05 billion euros annually.

We - the Baden-Württemberg Spa Association - are the interest group for spas and health resorts in Baden-Württemberg and represent them in public. We are the only lobby group for spas and health resorts in the state and we actively promote their interests. We are the contact for the industry as well as for end customers, the media and politics.

The majority of the higher-rated spas and health resorts in Baden-Württemberg actively participate in the association's work through membership. This association's work is closely aligned with the interests and key topics of the member resorts and also sensitizes the industry to new developments in the tourism, health and recreation segments.

When people think of health and relaxation, they should think of Baden-Württemberg first - that is our declared goal. We are constantly working on this with market research-based marketing measures. We offer individual platforms for the member locations and market the spas and health resorts in Baden-Württemberg as a whole.

We are a strong association with our members as strong partners. Above all, the exchange between each other is important to us; only through regular communication can ideas flow and develop further!

Our structure

Due to the restructuring of the Baden-Württemberg Spa Association, the association's focus is on market research in addition to marketing the spas and health resorts in Baden-Württemberg. The two subject areas are closely intertwined and the secondary and primary analyses support the association's targeted marketing strategy. In addition, the office acts as a mediating body and contributes to the stronger networking of individual working groups and committees.

The innovations in the areas of “digitalization” and “market research and innovation development” illustrate the expanded focus on current topics as well as an increased future orientation of the association, which will drive the modernization of spas and health resorts in Baden-Württemberg in the future.
