This state-approved spa resort lives and breathes spa treatments and tourism. Day-to-day life and culture are seamlessly blended with the high standards of a spa and holiday resort. Visitors come here to build up their defences, to stave off illness or to convalesce. In Bad Kreuznach guests can experience the natural benefits of radon gas, which has been used in safe concentrations for a century to treat rheumatism and inflammations. Bad Kreuznach first pioneered the use of radon therapy in an underground quicksilver chamber where the air is dry and almost completely free of dust. For one hour patients inhale safe concentrations of the radon gas that appears naturally in the air. This inhalation therapy is eminently suitable for the elderly and those with unstable circulation. A variety of leisure and relaxation options can be found within a few minutes' walk and an enchanting river and forest landscape is right on the doorstep. Visits to the many museums and monuments in and around the town can be combined as an itinerary for a delightful walk or a stroll.
