Fantastic countryside and a great variety of possibilities for your leisure time in the sunny Markgräflerland area

Bad Bellingen is located in the southern part of Markgräflerland, in the area where France, Switzerland and Germany adjoin each other and between Freiburg im Breisgau and Basle, which is Germany’s sunniest corner due to the climate of Belfort Gap. With its mineral thermal springs and the many possibilities for therapy, the health resort offers everything that is beneficial for your health.


From time immemorial, Markgräflerland has been renowned for its culinary delicacies and its select wines and types of schnaps. The substantial, eutrophic soils develop distinctive wines characteristic of their type, such as the Gutedel with its fine, unostentatious flowery bouquet and mild fragrance, which the local people particularly appreciate when they “nurse their little quarter glass of wineˮ.

Balinea thermal springs and thermal spa complex

The Balinea thermal springs have been effervescing their particularly beneficial thermal water ever since 1956. On a more than 1,000sqm expanse of water, unspoilt thermal water containing minerals awaits you. And in addition to this, a fantastic open-air area with a basin with cold water to refresh yourself, a salt grotto, a lawn area for relaxation, swimming pools arranged in terraces and plenty of space to spoil your spirit, body and soul. Or why not relax in the beautifully located Balinea sauna park? Look forward to plenty of countryside and architecture employing natural materials – a place to relax and feel good.
