Swiss Seniors Open Bad Ragaz
There’s Something in the Water
Situated in the St. Gallen Rhine Valley at the foot of the Pizol mountain, Bad Ragaz is truly a Swiss paradise.
This idyllic mountain village may be renowned for its spa and wellness resort, yet guests to Bad Ragaz will find many more interesting sights to see in Heidiland, the neighboring village of Maienfeld, where Switzerland’s most popular children’s novel “Heidi” was set. Not to be missed are also the 18-hole PGA course that hosts major European golf events and a smaller nine-hole course, which are both located at the foothills of the Alps with spectacular views.
After a round of golf, why not take a well-earned rest at one of Europe’s oldest wineries, Schloss Salenegg, whose history dates back to 950 AD and whose Pinot Noir is just as sublime as the mountain panorama surrounding the vineyard.
With its many attractions and reputation as a paradise for health, well-being and relaxation, Bad Ragaz really does have something for everyone, making it the perfect destination.
Bad Ragaz Grand Resort
Nestling amid spectacular mountain scenery, the Grand Resort Bad Ragaz is situated in the Heidiland holiday region of Eastern Switzerland, just an hour’s drive from Zurich. The resort, which dates back to 950 AD when a body-temperature thermal source was discovered, has been awarded the accolade “Switzerland’s Best Wellness Hotel” (SonntagsZeitung, 2015/2016) and offers an extraordinary and authentic spa experience in the 36.5° Wellbeing & Thermal Spa.
Seven restaurants, a bistro and a café provide a huge range of culinary diversity. In addition to 267 rooms and suites, the resort also offers two golf courses, the Kursaal Business & Events Center, a wide variety of cultural activities, the public Tamina Therme thermal spa, and its own casino.
Complementing the well-being and recreational facilities is the internationally renowned Medical Health Center, a byword for the very best in diagnostics, preventive care and rehabilitation, as well as the Swiss Olympic Medical Center. In 2014, the outpatient medical facilities were expanded to include an inpatient rehabilitation clinic.
