Switzerland is packed with natural hot springs that have been attracting visitors for their healing properties for a very long time, starting with Roman soldiers two thousand years ago. These mineral springs were so well known that entire spa complexes, and even whole towns, have been built around hot springs in Switzerland. St. Moritz, now best known as a posh ski town, was sought out in earlier times for its many hot springs.
