Mario Botta’s spa vision
Rigi Kaltbad has been a place of pilgrimage for 600 years. The first bath chapel was built here in 1545. But people bathed in cold water back then – as the German name ‘Kaltbad’ (cold bath) suggests. Mario Botta tapped into this tradition with his design and breathed new life into the old spa culture.
Healing water, heated sustainably
Unlike 600 years ago, you can now bathe in warm water, sustainably heated by wood from Rigi. The water at the Mineralbad & Spa Rigi Kaltbad comes from our own healing spring, supplied by the Drei-Schwestern-Brunnen, just as it was 600 years ago.
The name of our Botta café is a little reference to the architect Mario Botta, who designed the Mineralbad & Spa. Here, our spa guests can enjoy snacks, sandwiches and delicious cakes, all freshly prepared each day.
