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.

Thermal water is characterized by a high temperature right at the source: it must be at least 20 degrees Celsius. If the thermal water also contains valuable minerals and trace elements, then the spa can call itself a mineral thermal spa. The healing waters come from natural, local springs. If the temperature of the mineral-rich water is less than 20 degrees Celsius, however, it is called mineral water and the spa is therefore a mineral spa.

In order for a spa to be called a brine spa, one liter of water must contain 5.5 grams of sodium ions and 8.5 grams of chloride ions. There are a total of six brine spas in Baden-Württemberg.
