Mondorf-les-Bains and its thermal spa water
The story of the domaine thermal de Mondorf-les-Bains is fascinating. In fact, the first water drilling dates back to the 19th century and its objective was to find rock salt on the Luxembourgish territory in the face of a significant rise in the price of salt in Europe. The drillers never found any salt, but what they did find was a large body of thermal mineral water. As the first two sources are almost depleted, the Michel Lucius Source is the one from which you get the benefits of spa water when you visit the domaine thermal Mondorf. Today, it is the one and only spa source in Luxembourg.
The domaine thermal offers moments of relaxation, stays and health spas. It is also home to a fitness centre, two hotels and three restaurants.
