  • Tamara B.

    The Old Bad Pfäfers is the oldest surviving Baroque bath in Switzerland. A touch of nostalgia surrounds the beautifully renovated buildings, which housed guests such as Rainer Maria Rilke and Victor Hugo at the height of the bath. In the detailed dining room you can still dine today. After the renewal of the bath after the French Revolution, the healing springs became a "place to be": up to three hundred guests from all over Europe dwell, bathe, eat and drink in Bad Pfäfers. Today there is a museum and a restaurant in the complex. An interesting place to immerse yourself in history.

    Viewing is worth it. Interesting history of the house and the discovery of the source.
