Naturmoorbad Gontenbad

Updated 10/08/2012

Fodor's Review

One of the strange local rituals in Appenzell is to bathe (or wallow) in muddy moor water, which is prized for its minerals and abilty to smooth even the roughest skin. The Naturmoorbad Gontenbad is by turns clinic and spa; each treatment room has a private bathtub into which an attendant pours a mixture of herbs and muddy water. Free with the Appenzell Gold Card, it's an ideal experience for rainy day.
