Thermal hotels with overnight stay
Definition: What is a thermal bath?
The term thermal bath originally refers to a pool filled with thermal water in which one could bathe. Even the Romans recognised the benefits of thermal water for body and soul. Over time, people tried to make access to thermal water easier and bathing in it more comfortable. Today, the term thermal bath therefore often no longer refers to the bath itself, but to the entire complex including the sauna landscape etc. These so-called bathing establishments are true wellness temples and sometimes very large areas with healing clinics, spa hotels and the associated infrastructure (saunas, steam baths, indoor and outdoor pools, adventure pools, etc.).
A thermal bath nowadays means a public bathing establishment with various pools, which with their warm and mineral-rich water serve not only for relaxation but also for health promotion. The water used, should have a natural water temperature of at least 20°C from a thermal spring in the region. Only bathing facilities that use groundwater with at least this outlet temperature are officially allowed to call themselves "Therme" according to the German Spa Association.
Where can I find the best thermal spas?
Italy in particular is known for its traditional thermal baths and is therefore particularly suitable for your upcoming relaxing holiday. How about a spa hotel in fairytale Tuscany, for example? But not only in the warm south, but also in the east of Germany you can enjoy excellent thermal holidays. Other popular thermal spa destinations are the Czech Republic, where the popular Bohemian spa triangle awaits you, or Hungary, where you can combine your wellness break with a city trip to the enchanted Budapest.
But also in Germany you will find many wellness temples, which will spoil you by all means. Whether in one of the many thermal spas in Bavaria, in Baden-Württemberg or in Rheinland-Pfalz - we will find a thermal spa hotel for you that is perfectly tailored to your needs.
