Mineral springs

Our water treasures

Bad Ems is a true paradise of healing springs

Water is life. We have a lot of water and above all good water, which provides a very special quality of life, which you can feel with us. We have 15 healing springs, believe it or not! One of them: the Robert-Kampe spring, a really Guinness Book suspected spring. With its 57° C it is one of the hottest in Germany. In summer, when it’s at its best, the fountain with its artesian water bubbles up to 8 meters high. In the historical fountain hall you can try our most famous spring, the Emser Krähnchen. And what do chemists and physicians have to say about the 15 medicinal springs of Bad Ems? They are alkaline-muriatic acidulous waters, the only ones in Germany.

Emser Kränchen Table Water

A true classic is back: in the middle of the 19th century, around 3 million jugs a year were filled in Bad Ems with the precious healing spring water of the Emser Kränchen spring and shipped to the whole of Europe. Since a few years now, the spring product is back on the market and can be drunk in the local gastronomy or taken home as a souvenir.
