Slowly step into the 34-degree warm spring bath in the outdoor area of Terme Merano. Amidst palm trees and mountain peaks, you take steps to help your health. Our thermal water has a calming and pain-relieving effect on the central and peripheral nervous system. It is also said to lower blood pressure, alleviate allergies and strengthen the immune system. In particular, people with chronic respiratory diseases, rheumatic complaints and certain bone, joint and muscle diseases find relief in the thermal water.
Where does this special water come from? Deep from the rock forming the Vigiljoch pass, the local mountain for the municipality of Lana. This is where the clinically tested, radon-containing water springs from, which has been extracted since 1966 and used for spa treatments in today's Terme Merano since 1972. Before it reaches Terme Merano, it is collected in a 1,200-metre-long tunnel.
Why is our thermal water so healthy? The area around the Vigiljoch pass is characterised by granite rock. This enriches the rainwater deep inside the mountain with radon, fluorine and rare metals. Its mineral salt content as well as the special gases and metals give the water its beneficial effect.
