Badenweiler is a haven of relaxation in the far south of Germany. Its warm climate and 1,700 annual hours of sunshine attract many visitors seeking the flair of the mediterranean. Whether it's simple pleasures such as sunbathing or walking in delightful countryside, this spa resort and holiday destination consistently provides the perfect backdrop for relaxing and replenishing your energy. Every day the bathing complexes in Badenweiler draw around a million litres of curative thermal water from the rock layers of the Black Forest and visitors can take full advantage of this precious natural resource, for instance in the Cassiopeia Therme. This thermal pool complex, which has been awarded five wellness stars, is in a class of its own. On offer are a sauna area, a Roman-Irish bath, a wellness suite, thermal springs and natural volcanic mud treatments, to mention just a few of the many ways to rejuvenate body and soul. Badenweiler is also perfect as a health break destination, as it offers various rehabilitation centres and acute clinics which specialise in the treatment of musculo-skeletal disorders such as arthritis and osteoporosis, cardiovascular diseases and physical and psychological exhaustion. Aside from healthcare the town has plenty to offer as well. For example it makes a perfect base for excursions to the surrounding area. Worth visiting are Freiburg with its old quarter and beautiful cathedral, and Basle over the border in Switzerland with its famous museums such as the Fondation Beyeler.
