The welcoming Leukerbad Therme (previously Burgerbad) is a family-friendly thermal pool facility in the heart of Loèche-les-Bains in the Swiss Valais Alps. Leukerbad Therme has ten hot water pools of various sizes and temperatures with water jets and waterfalls. Kids enjoy the special pool for toddlers while the fast all-weather water slides are popular with children of all ages. The emphasis at Leukerbad Therme (Burgerbad) is on fun – spa and beauty treatments are available but the nearby upmarket Walliser Alpentherme is a better day spa choice for adults.

Leukerbad Therme is the most popular spa facility in Leukerbad (Loèche-les-Bains). The large thermal baths complex sports ten hot water pools with water temperatures ranging from 28 °C to 43 °C.

The indoors and outdoors pools are open year-round and sport many additional features such as whirlpools, waterfalls, and massage jets to make them more fun and more relaxing. Leukerbad Therme (Burgerbad) also has a 25-m outdoor pool, as well as special play pools for toddlers.

The all-weather toboggan water slides (Wasserrutschbahnen) are also top attractions. The 106-m tube slide (Burgerblitz) and the 126-m regular water slide (Badnerblitz) are very popular with children of all ages – Swiss pensioners certainly do not let children have all the fun alone.

Leukerbad Therme also offers special spa and beauty treatments that are priced separately from the regular admission fee. The sauna and Turkish steam bath areas are similarly charged for separately and not open to those under 16. A gymnasium can be used independently from the thermal baths.

  • Children under 8 enter the Leukerbad Therme for free.

Youth and child fares are also available and depend on the year of birth rather than the actual birthday. (Proof of age may be requested.)
