Emser Therme in Bad Ems

Hiking and spas – tours with a feel-good factor

Plunging into warm healing water, relaxing in the sauna and soothing your tired muscles on a lounger surrounded by bubbling spa water – time out in the spa is relaxing and good for the body and soul. All the more so if you have given your circulation a work-out and your legs a bit of exercise on a long walk.The healing baths and spa resorts of Rhineland Palatinate are set amidst beautiful landscape that is well worth exploring on foot. There is a choice of circular routes to suit all abilities. You can breathe in the mountain air and enjoy the views, or explore the flora and fauna of the valleys. You also get the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of an apothecary or spa garden, or slip off your shoes and explore a barefoot trail. Whatever you decide, the selected walks are not too long, so you will have plenty of time for a relaxing visit to the spa afterwards.
