Therme Erding spans across 18.5 hectares, counts about 4,000 visitors daily and may well be called the biggest spa world of its kind. Five theme parks create inviting environments for guests of all age groups and the widespread layout allows a pleasant way of getting lost in relaxation. The gigantic layout features the slide paradise Galaxy Erding, the thermal pool Therme itself, the VitalOase as a combined textile sauna and wellness centre, the wave bath and the VitalTherme & Saunen, a combined thermal bath and sauna park. Test drillings in the early ‘80s brought up sulfurous water and unwittingly created a win-win situation far from crude oil. Shortly after the drillings ended, the first mini thermal bath was created by founder and architect Josef Wund and his son and entrepreneur Jörg Wund, while the city of Erding also since benefits from the thermal water, using it for its district heating system.
