Kneipp cure

Kneipp cures are probably one of the best-known water treatments. In the middle of the 19th century, the Kneipp cure according to Pastor Sebastian Kneipp (1821-1897) became socially acceptable. Kneipp discovered that walking in ice-cold water activates the body's self-healing powers and strengthens the immune system. To this end, the state-recognized Kneipp spas have facilities for treatments such as cold and hot showers, contrast baths, ablutions, dew walking and treading water. The focus is also on mental balance, herbal treatments, exercise stimulation and an optimized diet.

Awards serve as a seal of quality in health tourism. The respective federal state is responsible for the certification of spas and health resorts. In order to receive a rating, certain standards must be met in the area of medical facilities and tourist infrastructure. The state's health resort law defines these requirements.

These health resorts have natural water sources for treatments such as cold or hot water pouring, walking or treading water. There is also plenty of nature and tranquillity in and around the spa to help you relax and regain your inner balance. Medicinal plants and herbs also play an important role in the applications of the Kneipp cure. The Kneipp cure consists of five pillars: inner balance, enjoyment, herbs, exercise and water.
