Leukerbad's curative waters have been well known since Roman times. Every day 3.9 million litres of thermal water flow into the private and public pools. With a total of 22 thermal pools (indoor and outdoor) Leukerbad is home to the largest thermal pool offer in the Alps. In the impressive "Burgerbad" complex visitors can enjoy 11 pools with temperatures between 28° C and 44°C, looking up at the mighty peaks all around, such as the magnificent Balmhorn (3699m) from the outdoor pools. Winter sports haven't been around so long, but there have been ski lifts here for more than 50 years. They've recently been upgraded in part but with a large part of the clientelle of this resort here for the hot water, not the snow, the slopes are often delightfully quiet. The mixed ages of clientelle, give Leukerbad coupled with the smart town and impressive scenery make Leukerbad a rather cosmopolitan destination.
It doesn't matter whether you're sports mad, a wellness fan, in search of peace and quiet, or more family-oriented. The largest thermal spa and wellness resort in the Alps offers a wide range of relaxation options and activity programs amidst the fascinating Valais mountains at approx. 1,400 metres above sea level.
