The first orthopaedic centre was opened in the exclusive health resort of Wiesbaden back in 1836. The spa town's glowing reputation comes down in part to its very own 26 springs.
Wiesbaden's springs earned the town its status as a world spa resort early on, with facilities such as the Kaiser Friedrich and Aukammtal Thermal Baths still guaranteeing maximum relaxation to this day. Nowadays, the hot springs are crucial in the delivery of effective medical and balneological treatments for various conditions. And so Wiesbaden is home to many treatment and rehabilitation clinics, including institutions specialising in rheumatic and orthopaedic issues. In addition to the medical services, many hotels have their own thermal springs and offer premium wellness treatments too.
Wiesbaden is part of the European Route of Historic Thermal Towns, an international network of sustainable tourist destinations, all rich in history and cultural heritage, that use their thermal mineral waters for health and well-being.
