A home and a life’s work.


From the history books

Bad Ratzes looks back on an eventful long history. It was first mentioned in a document as early as 1191, and became famous in the 18th century, when people began to notice the sulphurous and iron-rich medicinal springs. What then becomes a popular natural bath helps breathe new life into the surrounding area.

It holds a unique attraction and soon well-known and sometimes illustrious artists, painters and writers write their names and lines into the guest books. We are happy to provide you with a more detailed insight into the history in our house chronicle.

The history

A unique place

"... it is not the bathtub and salon, tables and guests that have led me to Bad Ratzes, but God's magnificent creation full of scenic magic." - Vincenz Maria Gredler

(A fortnight in Bad Ratzes – A look at local natural history, with a focus on fauna)

Not only the scenic scenery but also the healing springs made Bad Ratzes a well-known bathing resort - even beyond the borders. The iron spring is located on the present-day path to the Schlernboden, about 700 m southwest of the bath, the sulphur springs about 500 m south on the right bank of the Förtschbach. In the past, the mineral-rich springs were used as a remedy for many illnesses. Gynaecological disorders, rheumatism, gout and nervous weakness were treated.

Beautiful view

Strong family ties

“This place lives by its own magic. Then, as now. Whenever my gaze wanders upwards over the rich contrasting colours of nature to the Sciliar watching over it, I know: this is the right place for me. This is my home." - Petra

For 50 years Eva and Waltraud Scherlin have dedicated their time to Bad Ratzes.

They have created a holiday home in this very special place, the fascination of which remains unbroken today. It is only natural for Petra and her family to continue this hotel tradition of almost a hundred years with passion and to look to the future with the eyes of a new generation and the enthusiasm of four young men who may one day write a new chapter in the history of the hotel.
