:: The thermal water
Since the 1960s radioactive mineral water has been pumped from Monte San Vigilio near Merano and used for a variety of therapeutic applications. In the new Merano Thermal Baths the radioactive mineral water is employed for radon inhalations and individual radon baths.
The results of the latest tests show that the water has a radon concentration of 777 Bq/l (bequerel per litre). It is accordingly classified as "mildly radioactive".
A variety of therapeutic properties are ascribed to radioactive mineral water.
The therapies are only available to patients who have undergone a prior medical check-up with the resident physician at the Merano Thermal Baths.
