Leukerbad Therme

Leukerbad Therme

Leukerbad Therme is the largest thermal spa not just in town, but in the entire Alpine region. They boast several outdoor pools, natural thermal springs, and a modern sauna area for a lovely and relaxing experience. 

Leukerbad Therme boasts 10 thermal pools in total, which include both indoor and outdoor pools. They’re all themed and boast different water temperatures, so each of their pools is best suited for a specific purpose. One of the pools is entirely for children, there’s a pool in a natural stone grotto with thermal water, and there’s even an outdoor sports pool for the more athletic visitors. Bubble baths and massage jets are also common in the pools, and they promise utter relaxation to the guests. 

Most pools at Leukerbad Therme are outdoor pools and they’re open year-round, so you can enjoy bathing here while admiring the views of snow-capped mountain peaks in the background. The place is by far the best option for people who are visiting the village specifically for the thermal baths, especially families with children. 

  • Opening Hours: 8 AM – 8 PM
  • Ticket Prices: CHF 28 for 3 hours, CHF 35 for the entire day  (10% discount with Leukerbad Guest Card)
  • Activities: Thermal baths, Sauna, Children’s pool, Water slides

Walliser Alpentherme

Walliser Alpentherme is a thermal bath complex situated in the heart of Leukerbad. Unlike the much bigger Leukerbad Therme, this complex features only two pools – an indoor pool and an outdoor pool. The outdoor pool is a thermal pool that offers beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and allows visitors to enjoy the warm water while breathing in the pure mountain air. 

The indoor pool is a Roman-Irish bath and can be discovered only if you purchase tickets specifically for it. The Roman-Irish bath is a two-hour experience, and tickets will also allow you to spend three hours in the other thermal pool. However, it’s nearly 80 francs for this experience, which is a bit much for a two-hour bath if you ask me. 

Overall, this is a very expensive spa center in Leukerbad, and not the best option if you’re going with a group of people. Children over the age of eight are allowed at the wellness resort, but it’s worth noting that there is no dedicated bathing area for them. 

  • Opening Hours: 9 AM – 8 PM
  • Ticket Prices: CHF 33-79 for 3 hours  (10% discount with Leukerbad Guest Card)
  • Activities: Outdoor thermal pool, Roman-Irish Bath, Valais Sauna Village

Therme 51° is a family-owned wellness center in Leukerbad. It’s a small place perfect for couples who want to stay somewhere a bit more romantic and be pampered during their stay. It’s also worth noting that this is a hotel with thermal baths – you can book a room at the hotel, or you can visit just for the baths. 

Therme 51° features two tiny outdoor thermal pools and an indoor pool, as well as saunas and massages. Their pools are filled with unfiltered thermal water that’s anywhere between 36°C and 42°C, plus they are recognized as Swiss medicinal baths. 

This isn’t the ideal place for families with children because there’s no dedicated pool for them, and don’t expect to see any slides or fun water activities either. This is a spa and wellness center, perfect for people who want to relax and enjoy pure bathing pleasure. But not ideal for kids. 

  • Opening Hours: 7:30 AM – 7:30 PM
  • Ticket Prices: 28 CHF for 3 hours (10% discount with Leukerbad Guest Card)
  • Activities: Thermal bath, Sauna, Steam bath
