Rheinfelden as a health resort: tradition and modernity

Rheinfelden has been a certified Wellness Destination since 2015, but its salt and spa tradition dates back to the 19th century.


Rheinfelden as a fashionable spa town.

In 1837, workers discovered salt deposits not far from Rheinfelden. Shortly afterwards, the first brine bath opened, marking the beginning of the Rheinfelden spa and health resort. Hoteliers welcomed guests from Paris, Vienna and Russia.
