Guided afternoon walk to visit hot spring + thermal baths

Discover Europe’s oldest thermal pool, its hot spring discovered almost 800 years ago, the pipe system that connects one to the other over 4.5km. Easy hike followed by a relaxing time at the thermal baths, no better way to end the weekend!

This guided afternoon walk is led by Celine Kahn, mountain leader.

What’s the plan?

Meet at Bad Ragaz train station at 14:30.

We start with a walk through this beautiful town, full of art and sculptures, and make our way to the Tamina river. We hike along the river, through the forest and surrounded by cliffs, all the way to the old thermal bath station, 5km further. From there we enter the very impressive and narrow Tamina canyon, which leads us to the 36.5°C Tamina spring, discovered in the 13th century. We then make our way back to Bad Ragaz along the river and the pipes that run the spring water all the way to our evening treat: the thermal baths. The Bad Ragaz thermal pool is the oldest in Europe. They are located in a beautiful building and are made of many different pools, indoors and outdoors, with waters from 17°C to 39°C, a sauna, a steam room, and other facilities.

The basic entry ticket for the thermal baths costs CHF 39, but everyone is free to stay as long as they want.
