Entertainment & Activities

Famous for Switzerlands hottest thermal water, this open air thermal bath has great views of the mountain, great sauna, hammam and variety of pools. It's relaxing and really romanic in the evening and fun for familites in the day - particularily when it rains! I always bring 2 towels when I go so I keep one for strolling between the pools and one for after the shower.
