European Thermal Towns

Ahhhhhhhh… is there anything more relaxing than a day at the spa? How about an entire holiday spent bathing beneath curative waters in one of 40 destinations around Europe?

That’s exactly what the European Historic Thermal Towns Association can provide, highlighting a number of towns, cities and regions that sit on top of ancient hot springs that have been offering a therapeutic soak to locals and visitors for hundreds of years. From well-known places such as Budapest to yet-to-be-discovered gems like Pamukkale in Turkey, these thermal waters can rejuvenate the body and mind, leaving you ready to explore the surrounding area.

And, if you can’t get enough of the healing H2O, the European Route of Historic Thermal Towns allows you to link two or more destinations together for a truly tranquil tour.
