Emser thermal spa

Wellness on the river

Germany's first floating river sauna

The Emser Therme is one of the most modern and attractive wellness spas in Germany. Idyllically embedded and situated directly on the banks of the Lahn, it blends in perfectly with nature. The attractive location makes it possible to create vantage points that invite you to enjoy wide views over the romantic river landscape. The large thermal spa landscape is fed by the valuable Emser thermal water. The pools with different temperatures invite you to immerse yourself, relax and swim. Special recreation is offered by the Sidroga® herbal steam bath, the Emser® salt inhalation with the well-known Emser® salt, and the rain field. One very special attraction is Germany's first floating river sauna.
