Merans thermal baths are more than a further addition to the feel-good facilities at this well known health resort; they are an architectural highlight, too. The exciting glass and steel cube is the heart of the new spa complex on the south bank of the River Passer. The plaza created between the thermal baths and the hotel is the ideal place to sit and relax in the open-air caf and an attractive meeting point for the resort as a whole. The spacious park is divided into two sections, with one reserved for the exclusive use of visitors to the thermal baths, while the rest is open to the public. The park is thus a centrally located oasis of peace and quiet not only for spa visitors but for all the people of Meran and their guests. The Thermal Waters - Since the 1960s radon water has been supplied from Vigiljoch near Merano and used for a variety of therapies. In the new thermal baths, too, radon water will play a significant role for fango baths, balneotherapy and inhalations. Thanks to its pain-relieving and muscle-relaxing properties, radon water is employed in numerous therapies and treatments as a curative water. In addition, the Merano Thermal Baths will be using thermal water from a new well at a depth of 2,350 meters. The sulfur water, which is 33 C warm, contains brine and several other valuable elements. At present a full analytical program is being performed to provide detailed information on the composition and properties of this thermal water.
With a total area of over 50,000 m, the park offers ample space for a variety of attractions. In a setting of fine mature trees, the lovingly tended grounds with the palm and rose garden, the picturesque lily pond and the colorful flower beds are the perfect place for complete relaxation. For spa visitors, there is a health and bathing trail with a thermal spring pool, flowing current channel, hot and cold pool and a kneipp pool - plus many other special features including a subterranean steam bath, waterfall, rock geyser, power showers, etc. The result will be unforgettable memories of a fine spa experience. Enjoy all the new impressions as you relax afterwards on the spacious sunbathing and sports lawns, in the cool chamber or in one of the many quiet spots in the fresh Alpine air...
