    Leukerbad Spa Town

    Leukerbad sen from Gemmibahn

    Favorite thing: Leukerbad was known in Roman-Helvetian times - supported by numerous finds dating back to the Ancient World. Leukerbad is first mentioned in historical records under the name of "Boez" in 1229. The thermal springs of Leukerbad have been used without interruption since Roman times. In Leukerbad 8 springs or groups of springs are currently used and some 3.9 million litres of thermal water (51° C) per day flow into the private and public baths, the most important spa and wellness resort in the Alps with 22 open air and covered thermal pools.

    Favorite thing: We didn't spent a lot of time in the village we just strolled through to reach the gondola station . Its a pretty place, typical of many alpine centres with shops, cafes and flower bedecked chalets. It was Sunday when we were here and our walk co-coincided with the bell ringing of the catholic church - it was deafening! There was a hotel next door to the church - note to self don't stay here!

    Rathaus

    by sandysmith Written Aug 9, 2008
    Rathaus Leukerbad

    Favorite thing: From the bus station you can exit through the town hall - the Rathaus - to reach the village centre. Its oddly a modern contemporary building compared to the old chalets in the town. Behind the Rathaus on top of the roc, just to the right, is the top station of the Gemmibahn. The tourist office is here so you can get tourist information , tickets etc... all here.
