Switzerland: Well-being and Spa

A summer and winter sports paradise

Switzerland Well-being and Spa

Switzerland is the traditional location of the world's best spa holidays, including the Victoria-Jungfrau Grand Hotel and Spa in Interlaken and the Lausanne Palace and Spa on Lake Geneva.

Wellness holidays combine hiking with luxury spas, and there are plenty of hotels in beautiful locations that combine the two activities in Switzerland. Check out the mountain hot springs at Vals or Bad Scuol in Engadin in Switzerland – the major spas in Graubünden – as well as the many smaller spas with healing waters.

In Baden, in Switzerland, the Thermalbad or public baths can be visited by anyone. The idea is to swim round the perimeter of the baths, which have jets, positioned at different levels. A little buzzer alerts bathers when to move onto the next jet. Try it for a really relaxing experience during your holiday in Switzerland, before you’re wrapped in a warm bathrobe and directed to the relaxation room where talking and cell phones are not allowed.
