Holiday resort Bad Bertrich

Bad Bertrich combines the best of Eifel and Moselle

Bad Bertrich – in a side valley of the Moselle – that was the slogan with which our town presented itself to potential guests for many years. Although this is not entirely true, it shows the proximity and connection with the people and structures there. Alf, for example, is only 9 kilometres away, just follow the course of the Üßbach to the east! You can reach the Calmont via ferrata near Bremm, in the steepest vineyard in Europe, in about 10 minutes! Geologically, however, we are part of the Volcanic Eifel and are naturally part of the GesundLand Vulkaneifel thanks to our 32° warm thermal spring. The health-orientated offer in the village, Bad Bertrich is home to 4 clinics, has always existed. Even the Romans appreciated the healing power of the Glauber’s salt thermal spring and settled here. Evidence of the almost 2000 year old Roman baths can still be found today among the spa facilities. The thermal mineral healing water is used internally and externally to treat numerous ailments.

Our tip: why not try a sip of Berquell healing water!

Drinking Fountain

The 32°C naturally warm Glauber’s salt thermal spring rises under the drinking fountain hall as a mountain spring that was already tapped by the Romans. The certified healing water is used for medical and wellness treatments with drinking and bathing applications. The spring water is freely accessible to visitors at two drinking fountains.
Detailed information about our healing water can be found at here.


The Electoral Palace is located in the centre of the spa gardens. Once used by Clemens Wenzeslaus, Elector of Trier, as a hunting lodge and summer residence, it now hosts events and wedding ceremonies. Together with the large Kursaal, the Concert Hall, the Elector’s Hall and the Karlsbad Hall, the  Kulturraum Bad Bertrich  offers a unique ambience that tastefully combines history and modernity.

The Römerkessel Landscape Therapy Park with its 7 themed gardens is the perfect place to slow down and relax. Guided tours of the park are recommended and can be booked as part of the weekly programme in the GesundLand Touristinformation Bad Bertrich.


Small but nice is the motto here. Although the town only has a few hundred inhabitants, there is a wide range of gastronomic offerings. The choice ranges from home-style cooking, pizza and pasta to health-conscious and regional specialities. Table reservations are recommended, especially during the season and around public holidays. Opening hours vary.

A selection of cafés all the way down to the Schwanenweiher pond, where you can enjoy the famous Schwanenwindbeutel, will sweeten your holiday.

The evening ends in the bars Hoschis Tijuana and the Moselstube.

The network of trails around Bad Bertrich stretches along four main hiking trails and numerous side routes, covering around 70 kilometres of mountain and valley. Wildly romantic, geologically and historically interesting, you can experience the unspoilt nature of our landscape between the Volcanic Eifel and the Moselle, which is characterised by lava and slate.

HeimatSpur Wasserfall-Erlebnisroute​

Every year, readers of the Wandermagazins vote for the most beautiful hiking trails in Germany in various categories. In 2023, our HeimatSpur Wasserfall-Erlebnisroute im GesundLand Vulkaneifel was awarded 1st place as Germany’s most beautiful hiking trail in the day tour category! Isn’t that great?

The HeimatSpur waterfall adventure route is a 13-kilometre hike that starts and ends in Bad Bertrich. It first leads up the rocky slopes surrounding the spa town and deeper and deeper into the Erdenbach valley until it reaches the Klidinger waterfall – the highest waterfall in the Eifel at 28 metres. But the waterfall is not the only highlight along the route. Along the way, in addition to a natural refrigerator at the Maischquelle spring and fantastic views at the Falkenlay, the Hohenzollernturm and the Oase der Ruhe, there are also geological features such as the Stone Age caves and the sediment wall at Kennfus.

We think: The waterfall adventure route is a great hiking trail that connects many of the sights around Bad Bertrich on narrow paths and wide trails. Sure-footedness is essential for the passage by the waterfall.

Have fun hiking!
