Leukerbad is characterised by its unique location in one of the most picturesque Swiss regions, which also attracts people by its ancient history. The graves and various remnants of ceramics attest that the habitation in this region dates right back to the 4th century.
One of Leukerbad's gems is the Gemmi Pass which traces back to the 5th century. It is a high tower on the top of the village that goes across the Bernese Alps at an altitude of 2270 metres above sea level, linking Leukerbad with Kandersteg. This historic Pass is called "the classic among the classics" for the incredibly picturesque views. Like in many other Swiss mountain destinations, the lovers of an active lifestyle and the ultimate relaxation can find here every opportunity to relax and get the most out of their holiday.
Leukerbad is the largest SPA and wellness resort in the Swiss Alps. Here you can relax or have your treatment with natural underground water unlike anywhere else on earth. The sixty-five springs provide about four million litres of mineral-rich water for the thermal baths. This is the place where you’ll understand the real meaning of relaxing your mind and muscles.
Leukerbad thermal springs run year-round and welcome worldwide tourists. AlpExcursion, as a local travel expert, offers you a private journey to the world of wellness at the hot baths, especially during the winter season, while the snowy Alps sit as a beautiful background.
The sources of the water, which is over 51 degrees Celsius, are the daily flowing waters from the 65 thermal springs right into the 30 thermal baths. The wellness procedures here are at the top of the Swiss quality level with a vast array of choices, along with the pampering therapies and health procedures being offered. The surplus of natural water clears the village's steepest roads of snow by heating them with this hot water.
Leukerbad is on the list of the top five tourist destinations in Valais canton. It offers enormous activity choices in both summer and winter seasons. A wide selection of luxurious hotels and plenty of local restaurants are available.
Among the winter sports here, the skiing is also worth a try to enjoy half a dozen ski lifts.
