The hotel by the lake in South Tyrol looks back on an impressive past. For decades, the former “Gasthof zum Badl” inn in Kaltern was a popular meeting place for locals and travellers. We owe our name to a sulphurous healing spring above our hotel, which used to attract people to Kaltern from all over South Tyrol. As early as the 18th century, people took health-promoting baths in the so-called “Pfusser Badl”, a former residential building on the site of today’s “Das Badl”, and in the nearby St. Rochus Church, which were particularly effective against skin disorders. It is suspected that the “Frauenbrünnl” is connected to the healing spring of the “Pfusser Badl” because it is located above Pfuß. The source of the “Frauenbrünnl” was regarded as particularly fertility-boosting. Until the 19th century, women are said to have journeyed there time and time again in the hope of promoting their fertility. You can still visit the “Frauenbrünnl” today on the old Mendola/Mendel trail. The “Pfusser Badl” has unfortunately since dried up, but the name “Das Badl” has remained. It is a name that stands for tradition and hospitality in Kaltern.
