Thermal water & Architecture

The source of the 36.5° blue gold

The largest “acratotherm”, or warm-water spring, in Europe was discovered 800 years ago. And none other than Paracelsus himself praised its healing effect when he visited the spring in 1535. The thermal spa water bubbles from the spring at a temperature of 36.5°C after a 14-year journey through the Alps. The Tamina Therme is an officially recognised health spa in accordance with art. 40 of the Swiss Health Insurance Act.

History

In the early days, the first spa guests were lowered into the gorge on ropes – since 1840, a pipe four kilometres in length has brought the water to Bad Ragaz, where in 1872 Europe’s first thermal water indoor pool was created.
