Thermal Baths & Salt Caves

Find the Sea in the Southern Palatinate

The Südpfalz Therme in Bad Bergzabern invites you to relax and recharge your batteries in the warm thermal water. The water, which comes into the pools from a depth of 450 metres, is between 30 and 32°C and pampers and relaxes the whole body. Thanks to its special mineral composition (sodium chloride thermal water), the thermal water promises relief for rheumatic complaints, osteoporosis and all diseases of the joints and spine. In addition, various saunas run hot for guests, who can cool down afterwards with Kneipp hoses, ice fountains or under the experience shower. The extensive spa landscape includes a stylish sauna roof garden, a professional health area, a Dead Sea salt grotto as well as a wellness area and relaxation oases. The massages and treatments on offer in the wellness and spa department also promise to provide you with the perfect treatment.

The positive effects of salt have been known for thousands of years, particularly for allergies, respiratory and skin diseases. However, the healing mineral is also used to treat stress and exhaustion as well as cardiovascular diseases. In the salt caves of the Südpfalz-Therme in Bad Bergzabern, the Maikammer sports park and the REHA health park in Herxheim, visitors can take a seat on cosy loungers and sit back and relax with a pleasant room climate, gentle sounds and calming light arrangements. A stay of at least 45 minutes is recommended in order to absorb the iodine-rich air in sufficient quantities through breathing. With every breath, the body processes the important minerals and benefits from the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory climate.

The Healing Power of Vinegar

The Doktorenhof Wine Vinegar Estate in Venningen

Most people reach for vinegar when it comes to culinary delights in the kitchen and only a few realise its healing properties. Vinegar works wonders for respiratory diseases and digestive problems in particular.

The Doktorenhof wine vinegar estate in Venningen is a small manufactory of "sour elixirs" and invites visitors to learn more about the mystery of sour art on a guided tour of the vinegar cellar and herb chamber. In addition to fine wine vinegar for the kitchen, vinegars for the body also mature in the hundred-year-old barrels. For example, the in-house "Traveller Vinegar" helps travellers to tolerate foreign food, the stresses of travel and the change in climate, as well as refreshing the mouth and mucous membranes. The "Respiratio" inhalation vinegar - a vinegar specially developed for nebulisation - has a beneficial effect on respiratory diseases. As early as the 17th century, people knew about the beneficial properties of vinegar vapours - they humidify the air and contribute to the well-being of the respiratory tract.
