Mineral spring
The bathing water enjoyed by guests at the mineral bath & spa Samedan comes from a source 35 metres underground and is considered mineral spring water due to its composition and high mineral content. The spring was discovered by chance in 2008 during drilling under the Spa in the village centre of Samedan.
Rooftop bath
The mineral bath & spa Samedan is Switzerland’s first vertical mineral bath. The various bathing rooms are spread over five floors. Another highlight: the outdoor bath on the roof, overlooking the church steeple and offering stunning views over the surrounding mountains.
