Forum Paracelsus

Millennia-old bathing culture

 

The bathing culture of St. Moritz is deeply rooted – it reaches back to 1400 years BC. The mineral springs with their ferrous and aerated waters achieved great fame and appreciation during the Middle Ages under Pope Leo X and the naturopath Paracelsus. With the St. Moritz MTZ therapeutic bath, a medical, therapeutic bath exists to this day, offering comprehensive therapies. At the associated, newly restored Forum Paracelsus, the history of the St. Moritz mineral springs will be passed on by means of audio stations and touch screens. The drinking fountain invites visitors to taste the St. Moritz acid water, and in the core of the museum, the Mauritius fountain, dating back to the Bronze Age, can be viewed behind a glass pane
