Enjoy an autumn of well-being in Bavaria´s therapeutic baths

There is hardly anything more relaxing than taking a comfortably warm bath on an autumn day. This can only be topped by a premium experience at therapeutic baths, thermal baths and health spas. Where else can we better unwind and recharge our batteries? Nestling in picturesque landscapes, Bavaria boasts a high density of such temples of relaxation, which all offer plenty of space for recreation and meditation.

Some people prefer to relax by undertaking a cycling tour, going for a walk or doing sports, others find relaxation in visiting a sauna, enjoying a massage or floating in a saline bath. And sometimes it's a combination of activity and relaxation.

Autumn is knocking at our door, leaves are starting to change their colours and the gentle weather of the Indian summer brings the last warm rays of sun. Of course, temperatures are dropping and the weather is slowly becoming more and more uncomfortable, but it is still possible to go for a cycling tour, a walk or a hike – the ideal time for a wellness holiday in Bavaria. Bavaria's therapeutic baths are not only surrounded by beautiful, multifaceted nature, they are also healthy: enjoy healing thermal water for your skin, fresh and clean air for your lungs, saline baths and Kneipp cures for your entire body. Bavaria's health resorts offer a therapeutic mountain climate which is low in pollens, particulates and allergens, making it the best treatment for respiratory diseases. The healing waters of Bavaria are perfect to alleviate the symptoms of skin diseases, as sole baths relieve the itching and activate the body's self-healing forces.

Bavaria has a high density of health resorts and therapeutic baths, thus promoting a large variety of healing features such as healthy climate, healing waters, thermal waters, moor treatments, sole baths and Kneipp cures.
