In the Ultental Valley, the meadows are perhaps a bit more lush, the air a bit more pure than elsewhere.
Because the valley is so rich in water. A total of 44 lakes invite visitors to fish, swim and dive in, and everywhere you can enjoy fresh mountain water. Even the local tap water is spring water from the mountains of the Ultental Valley.
There are also numerous healing springs used in the 18th and 19th centuries for drinking cures and spas. In addition to the Empress Elizabeth of Austria, other famous visitors to the spa facilities in the valley included Otto von Bismarck and the German writers, the brothers Thomas and Heinrich Mann.
Even today, the iron and mineral water of the springs is used for drinking cures. Try it yourself. Water from the Lotterbad, Bad Lad and Überwasser spas: can you taste the difference?
