The largest thermal spa in the Alps has undergone an extension. The Burgerbad Therme in Leukerbad now has a 14-metre-high slide, which opened on Dec.14, 2008.

This is the first x-tube tyre slide in Switzerland and offers impressive views. The existing 70-metre-long tube slide was extended to 120 metres and equipped with two 360-degree twists. The slide tower runs down into a landing pool with a weatherproof interior.

The use of the slide is possible with one and two-seater wide-base tyres as well as without tyres. The entire upper level of the Burgerbad provides an extensive range of active sports activities, including a volleyball court and table tennis.

The spa offers a 25-metre sports pool, a children's play pool, 10 thermal baths, springs, waterfall showers, massage jets, whirlpools, a natural rock grotto, and a wide range of pampering spa treatments and massages. Burgerbad Therme is open between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. daily. Food and drink is available at the onsite restaurant, with a self-service buffet, and a pizzeria with a large sun deck.

Beside the spa and wellness activities, Leukerbad offers a range of winter sports. Skiers and snowboarders have access to 50 kilometres of pistes and a snowboard park.
