Essence for well-being from the Upper Bavarian mountains
Salt is much more than just a seasoning for our dishes: its existence in the depths of the mountains has shaped the history of Upper Bavaria. The Berchtesgadener Land and Bad Reichenhall are established on “salty roots”. And the Bavarian capital Munich would never have emerged if Henry the Lion had not built a bridge over the Isar in the twelfth century. There, he introduced customs duties for salt on the trading route. The revenues were used for the expansion of the city.
Wealth for beauty
Then as now the “white gold” meant wealth – even if another property of the white treasure has now become more important. Salt as an essence for your well-being. The uncontaminated mineral from the depths of the Upper Bavarian mountains is a real miracle cure for your body and spirit.
Enjoy, for example, a bath in dissolved original Berchtesgaden rock salt. This experience will give you an incomparable feeling of weightlessness. You are doing something for your health at the same time: your entire organism will be purified, stimulated and sustainably built up.
Healing Alpine brine: escape from the stress of your everyday life
Unique, pure, healthy: a bath in real Alpine brine relieves your whole body. The spring water contains at least 1.4 per cent salt. Whilst you allow your mind to wander, the salt will do the rest: it will purify your skin and get your organism going due to its irritant effect. Your body will activate its self-healing capacities. This will stimulate your immune system and strengthen your nervous system.
Enjoy versatile treatments with brine compresses or brine rinses, or inhale salty water drop by drop. This is particularly helpful for people whose airways are affected. It will also enable you to quickly get to grips with a cold with sniffles and a cough.
Salt on our skin: from the depths of the mountains for your health
In the Berchtesgaden salt mine, brine has been pumped out of the depths of the mountains into the famous saltworks of the picturesque town of Bad Reichenhall for almost 500 years. A real natural product of the region – which is used in high-class wellness services of selected WellVital hotels in the thermal baths and spas.
Visit the salt grottoes and breathe the intense power of the ancient mineral. Relax in a brine bath or sunbathe in a “salt coat”. An exfoliation with laist, a mineral-brine silt, is particularly popular. It acts as a rejuvenating treatment on your skin and provides lasting relaxation. Thus, this is just the right treatment after a long hike through the Berchtesgadener Land.
