Burg can thank its iodine-rich thermal saltwater, drawn from a depth of 1,350 metres, for its official spa resort designation. At 24 percent, the water's mineral content is so high that it can compete with the waters of the Dead Sea. The Spree Forest MediClin Rehabilitation Centre gives visitors the chance to take time for their health. Its array of amenities form the basis of a variety of health break options and offer the perfect framework for both physical and mental rejuvenation. The specialist clinic focuses on the treatment of cardiovascular and metabolic illnesses (especially diabetes mellitus), on rehabilitation after cardiovascular surgical procedures and for musculo-skeletal diseases after serious accidents and multiple fractures. In addition to the Spree Forest Rehabilitation Centre, numerous health and fitness-oriented establishments and hotels offer various elements of thalassotherapy, with treatments ranging from hydrotherapy, massages, electro-physiotherapy, mineral baths, seaweed and mud packs to inhalation, aqua-aerobics and cosmetic thalasso sessions. Burg also enjoys an exceptional location in the heart of the Spree Forest region. The UNESCO biosphere reserve in southern Brandenburg is on the edge of the unspoilt Hochwald woodlands. The scenery is simply stunning, with hundreds of waterfalls turning the countryside into an enchanting water labyrinth.
