In the wild and romantic mountain landscape of the Buuschenbach valley lie the ruins of a spa whose healing waters were once known all over Switzerland. Weissenburg's curative and mineral waters were marketed until only a few decades ago, and from the 17th to the 20th century, the Weissenburg baths were one of the most popular destinations in the Bernese Oberland. The ruins of the older baths are now being researched and restored by the Bernese Archaeological Service and the Association Bad und Thermalquelle Weissenburg. In the roar of the waters of the wild alpine stream, and hemmed in by the strange formations of the towering rocks, these ruins tell the story of a lost spa culture and romantic summer breaks.
With the reopening of the site for the public, guided tours and conferences will be organised during the month of June 2016.
The site is at the end of a long and savage valley. You need good shoes and a dose of courage!
