One of the most iconic works of the 2009 Pritzker Prize winner Peter Zumthor, Therme Vals is built from locally quarried Quartzite over the only thermal springs in Graubünden. It was built between 1993 and 1996 and inaugurated on December 14 1996. The building is so special that only two years after its inauguration, it was already granted protected heritage status.
In total there are 7 different pools all with their own particular ambiance and ranging in temperature from 14 to 42 degrees Celsius. They have different sizes, different lighting and some even have a scent or soundscape.
