Bad Dürrheim is a pretty town whose precious salt water makes it the only salt-water spa in the Black Forest. It is also a climatic health resort thanks to the pleasantly bracing mountain climate in these Alpine foothills and the low levels of humidity. For visitors this means just one thing: the ultimate in health and relaxation. Numerous sports, wellness options and health facilities provide the perfect combination between an activity holiday and a health-focused break. A salt-water cure relieves stress on the joints and muscles with the help of soothing salt-water baths, strengthens the heart and circulation, clears the airways and boosts skin regeneration. The salt required comes directly from Bad Dürrheim's salt reserves. At the Solemar centre visitors can enjoy an array of water attractions and experience blissful warmth in the six themed saunas that make up the 3,200m² Schwarzwald sauna complex. The 23°C Dead Sea salt grotto, where the humidity never rises above 50 per cent, is also wonderfully relaxing. Its pure ionised air, combined with soothing sounds and lighting, soon reveals its positive effects. Bad Dürrheim also encourages visitors to put together their own formula for enjoying outdoor activities: in the extensive spa gardens, on more than 100 kilometres of cycling and walking routes or on three Nordic walking trails. The popular holiday region between the Black Forest and the Swabian Alb also offers many exciting discoveries.
