Right in the middle of the mountains, close to the Dolomites, where the climate is more inclement and the winter is more biting, well-being is the subject the whole year-round. Above all else after athletic winter days, the sauna and the whirlpool are luring to relax the muscles and the soul. There is a scent of wood, of a pine forest, of the mountains, of those proud giants that peek inside the windows with curiosity. That is Alpine wellness.
Bathing worlds, sauna landscapes, whirlpool oases, quiet rooms. A true wellness highlight is the Cron 4 in Riscone-Reischach. A temple of wellbeing that not only speaks to each one of the senses, but also unites all of the elements. The transition to the outside flows smoothly and is hardly noticeable. Thus under the open sky, white steam rises from the warm pools, and after a relaxing or stimulating pour of water over the hot coals in a sauna cabin, the body is cooled off in the fresh snow.
Anyone who sets off toward Campo Tures-Sand in Taufers will have a hard time passing up the Cascade. Pilgrims in search of silence, who long for relaxing saunas and peace and quiet come here to find what they are seeking, as do families looking to turn gentle circles in the warm water or to polish their swimming technique in the lap pool. In the summer, the nature swimming pond with its water attractions also provides some lively invigoration.
The beneficial force of sulphur is closely associated with the springs that rise up in the Kronplatz region. A number of public medicinal baths all initiate their guests into the secrets and workings of warm sulphur baths. Thus the Bad Bergfall issues an invitation for a dip in its Emperor’s Tub or its Fountain of Youth Tub. Bad Valdander draws its mineral-rich water from a lime-rich dripstone cave. The oldest of the bath facilities is located in S. Vigilio di Marebbe-St. Vigil in Enneberg. Le Bagn Aqua Bad Cortina has been pampering its spa guests since as early as 1780 and has a silver quartzite tub that is unique in all the world.
