General Questions

The Sächsische Staatsbäder GmbH, a company of the Free State of Saxony, combines the two mud and mineral spas of Bad Elster and Bad Brambach.

Natural Remedies

In Bad Elster and Bad Brambach, the Sächsische Staatsbäder GmbH is responsible for the preservation and constant monitoring of the natural healing resources of moor and mineral healing water/radon healing water. In Bad Elster, natural moor is administered in the form of moor baths and packs, and mineral healing water is administered as baths and drinking cures. In Bad Brambach, radon dissolved in mineral healing water is used as a special natural healing resource in the form of baths and drinking cures.

In order to preserve and protect the company's natural medicinal resources, extensive ongoing investments are required in the spring technology and spring buildings of the individual springs, as well as the peat storage and revitalization, peat processing, including the necessary technology.

In September 2015, the Bad Elster Soletherme & Sauna World opened, which is fed from its own brine reservoir in the Elster Valley. The highly saturated Glauber's salt brine is a self-contained primeval sea that consists of millions of years old and ice-age water, free from any environmental influences. A stay in Bad Elster's thermal brine is a preventative measure that promotes regeneration and relaxation. It is suitable for people (aged 14 and over) who are interested in maintaining or improving their health.
