Leukerbad (Loèche-les-Bains) is a year-round Swiss Alpine resort town located high in the Valais Alps above the Rhone Valley in Wallis. The town is mostly famous for having the highest and largest hot water thermal baths in the Alps. Mineral water comes to the surface in Leukerbad at around 51°C and the water temperature in the around 30 thermal baths in the resort town generally ranges from 28 to 43°C.

Leukerbad with its extensive winter sport facilities and summer hiking trails has a well-deserved family-friendly reputation. However, adults will also enjoy the fantastic hot water baths as well as exclusive spa facilities open to adults only.

Four-star hotels in Leukerbad with their own hot water pools and spa facilities include the Thermal Hotel Walliser Therme (previously Lindner), Le Bristol (previously Mercure), and Regina Therme.

The luxury Walliser Alpentherme Leukerbad Day Spa & Thermal Baths is the best upmarket, adult choice for travelers wanting a pampering spa experience in Leukerbad.

Leukerbad Therme (formerly known as the Burgerbad) has excellent facilities and is very family-friendly. The spa has ten pools with a range of water features including waterfalls, air bubbles, and massage jets. A special pool and play area for small children is popular with families while children of all ages enjoy the two all-weather water toboggan slides. Saunas, massages, and beauty treatments are available at Leukerbad Therme but the spa facilities offered by the Walliser Alpentherme are more extensive and only slightly more expensive.

Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Centers in Leukerbad, Switzerland

In addition to the day spas, day visitors are also welcome at physiotherapy and rehabilitation centers in Leukerbad. At these establishments, the emphasis is more on medical treatment and rehabilitation than on pure relaxation, beauty, and anti-stress treatments. Access to the thermal baths here are cheaper than at Leukerbad Therme (Burgerbad) or Walliser Alpentherme but facilities are also significantly more limited and opening hours shorter.

The RZL Rehazentrum Leukerbad specializes in the treatment of patients with musculoskeletal and neurological disorders and the rehabilitation of patients with post-operative and post-trauma conditions. Both in and outpatients treatments are available.

The Therme 51° (previously Volksheilbad) specializes in physiotherapy and wellness. Several spa treatments are available but once again at a cheaper rate than the more upmarket Walliser Alpentherme.
