Spas & health resorts in Destination Germany
The spa resort of Bad Mergentheim, which lies in the Liebliches Taubertal holiday region, encapsulates everything about a perfectly relaxing break: wellness treatments, spa facilities and health expertise.
It is the largest spa resort in Baden-Württemberg and the primary focus is on the four therapeutic mineral springs which offer a variety of bathing and drinking cures. When the first of these curative springs was opened up 180 years ago, it marked the beginning of Bad Mergentheim's history as a health resort. The key ingredients in this treasured spring water – sodium chloride, sulphates, calcium and hydrogen carbonate – exert beneficial effects on a range of symptoms; patients with illnesses of the liver, gallbladder, stomach, intestines or pancreas can all feel its therapeutic action. However the main beneficiaries of the treatments are people who suffer from heartburn and hyperacidity. In Bad Mergentheim visitors can choose between modern spa centres, sanatoria and spa clinics. A new style of spa concept has been introduced to combine the effectiveness of the natural medicinal resources with the considerable medical expertise of therapists. In short the idea is to link the medical treatments more closely with the many leisure and wellness options available, in order to maximise the positive benefits. Bad Mergentheim offers a variety of opportunities for incorporating medical therapies into a range of pleasurable activities, for instance a visit to one of Germany's most delightful spa gardens. This spa resort knows how to make every visit a resounding success.
