Full description

Bad Ragaz is situated at the foot of Pizol on the Rhine River Valley. It is renowned as a recreational resort all over the world. Here in Bad Ragaz, the bubbling waters are rich in sodium bicarbonate and calcium, magnesium, and fluorine. They flow up from the internal of the mountain with a temperature of 37° Celsius.

Bad Ragaz is an ideal traditional spa town right in the middle of breathtaking Alpine scenery. The countryside is characterised by the surrounding fabulous scenery formed by lakes and mountains. The walking paths give you all this beauty during a leisurely stroll.

The hot springs of Gorge Tamina Mountain were first discovered in 1240. The gorge is very narrow and has almost no natural light. Only during the mid-day do a few rays of sunshine penetrate here.

For special wellness treatment, you must pamper yourself in the Tamina Thermal Springs spa, where the real feeling of healing is generated by the flowing water located elegantly in the centre of Bad Ragaz.

For those interested in history and museums, there is a Monastery and Spa Museum with changing exhibitions.

Paracelsus is considered as the first spa physician in Bad Pfaefers, who discovered the healing and relaxing power of the thermal springs. This was the beginning of SPA tourism in Bad Ragaz. Nowadays, Bad Ragaz is a wellness resort with luxurious, top-rated hotels and thermal baths, which attract numerous tourists all year round.

The high-class golf clubs complement the magnificent accommodation and SPA centres by creating the image of the ideal Swiss relaxation space.
