The brine thermal baths Bad Elster are located in the Saxon Vogt region which lie at the Czech border. The region is one of the oldest mineral- and moor cure baths in Germany. Together with the Albert bath and the bath and sauna world Bad Brambach it forms the Saxon national baths.

In the pools with different salt and brine concentration and variety of temperatures you can strength the areas of your body.

The salt lake, for example, offers the experience of floating through the high concentration of salt. It helps the vegetal nervous system to find harmony and balance which activates the regulation mechanisms and resilience of the body.

In the sound bath you can get the whole experience for your senses. The influence of floating in the warm water gives you a warm inner feeling of calm. With visual effects and music, all your senses get activated.

The Hutzn bath, which means "talking together" in the Vogt dialect is for longer bathing and talking with other visitors. The massaging glands with different intensities make it a wonderful calming place.

Treatment - also for your belly 

The thermal- and sauna restaurant offers a great variety of mediterranean cuisine and homemade pasta which build the perfect ending of the visit. There is also an offer of small snacks and dishes for vegans as much as for people with gluten- oder lactose intolerance.
