Facilities at the Walliser Alpentherme Leukerbad Day Spa
The thermal baths at the Walliser Alpentherme are fed by the St Laurent spring, which provides around 940 l of mineral water per minute at a temperature of 51 °C. The main indoors and outdoors pools are at a temperature of 36 °C while a special warm bath is 40 °C. Except for special events, the thermal pools are clothes-on facilities.

Both the Roman-Irish bath treatment and saunas are in the nude and mixed, except Tuesday mornings when it is “Ladies only” in the sauna and Thursday mornings when it is “dressday” in the saunas.
