    • 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.

TRADITION AND CULTURAL HERITAGE

Baths with history

Even the ancient Celts used the divine healing power of warm water. When the Romans occupied the area of ​​what is now Baden-Württemberg around 70 BC, they not only used the thermal springs, but even adopted the Celtic gods and made them their own companions. While thermal springs were mystical places for the Celts, for the Romans the springs were part of the "ars vivendi" (the art of living) and were an expression of social status.

Magnificent bathing facilities were built at the springs, where people met, talked, haggled and were pampered. In the baths there were massages and sweat cures in heated rooms, cosmetic treatments with pumice stone, mud packs, almond bran, and drinking cures with mineral water were also prescribed. The collapse of the Roman Empire in the 5th century was followed by the collapse of the bathing culture. In the 14th century, public baths fell into disrepute due to infectious diseases and fears of dark forces.

The development of a spa culture

In the 18th and 19th centuries, in the age of progress and research, the healing effects of water on the human organism were investigated, as were the effects of additives such as mineral salts, extracts from slag or herbs and essential oils. The thermal baths were also redesigned at this time and the most beautiful domed buildings and most magnificent baths were built. A rich spa culture developed. Everyone of rank and name met in the sophisticated spa towns. They were places of sensual pleasure, of seeing and being seen, people celebrated health and enjoyed cultural life.

This glorious era came to an abrupt end with the World Wars. This long tradition is currently experiencing a new upswing. In particular, the awareness and desire to maintain one's own health is becoming increasingly important. Therefore, health facilities are adapting to the new and increased demands of their guests and offering pure health and relaxation in an inviting, feel-good atmosphere.
