Bike Touring Highlight
The thermal spa of Yverdon-les-Bains combines the soothing properties of sulfur water with modern bathing facilities, completely renewed a few years ago, and an adjoining four-star hotel. Thanks to its sources of sulfur and magnesium, Yverdon-les-Bains has a long tradition of being a spa resort and the center of healing, as evidenced by the ruins of Roman thermal baths. Primeval menhirs and medieval castles and palaces are further evidence of 6000 years of history. Since Roman times, Yverdon-les-Bains has been a popular thermal spa and sought-after destination for wellness and relaxation holidays. But not only the well-known thermal springs, but also a well-equipped spa and a grand hotel from the Belle Époque contribute to relaxing vacations or successful seminars.
The thermal center of Yverdon-les-Bains was built around a sulphurous spring that bubbles up from the ground at a temperature of 29 ° C. The warm spring water has a healing effect on joints, respiratory tract and stomach, but also on the muscles.
The thermal center has four pools, including an indoor pool. The water temperature is 34 ° C in winter and 28 ° C in summer. Whirlpool baths, massage jets, whirlpools and a lazy river are just a few of the ways to relax and unwind.
Already in 1. Century n. Chr. One came to the spa cure to Eburodunum, today's Yverdon-les-Bains.
