Heilbad St. Moritz
St. Moritz enjoys a spa tradition going back almost 3,500 years. With its carbonated, iron-rich waters, the Maurice Spring (1,774 m above sea level) is the oldest and highest-altitude medicinal spring. Many renowned physicians, among them the famous naturopathic physician Paracelsus, travelled to St. Moritz in past centuries and prescribed spa treatments. The mineral springs brought international fame to the farming village. Dukes and princes with their entourages came from all across Europe.
Today, guests from all over the world come to the MTZ Heilbad St. Moritz to receive treatment. They benefit from a diverse range of therapies, such as circulation stimulation, refreshing carbonated mineral baths, healing mud packs and numerous complementary treatment options, which help to improve both health and well-being. During their stay, guests can drink the sparkling spring water, known as “Eisensäuerling” (iron acidulous water), while enjoying the beautiful sunshine and stunning landscape of the Engadine mountains.
However, St. Moritz’s spa tradition currently faces an uncertain future. It would be a great loss for St. Moritz if the spa tradition, from which today’s tourism in the area originated, ended with the closure of the spa.
