Bad Ragaz is the most famous thermal springs resort in Switzerland (which is not the same as a mineral springs resort, incidentally). It has a huge number of thermal water pools and an excellent medical center in which you can have any examination and get a doctor’s prescription. The spa impresses with its choice of procedures – from classical to exotic, and taken from Tibetan and Oriental practices. In the nearby neighborhood you can find the source, which, according to legend, was blessed by the appearance of the Virgin Mary – lots of pilgrims come here.

Only bliss, comfort, health, love, peace …
