The Spring

The origin of the AquaMedica spring is in Walchen, Southeast of Öblarn in Styria, Austria. In an old mining tunnel in 1,100 metres above sea level, rises the water in the Thaddäusstollen,  which originally was called Thaddäusquelle due to its origin.

The natural healing power of the water with inflammatory and infectious skin diseases has been suggested for a long time already. In the 17th century, Johann Adam Stampfer, a former owner of the trades, set up a bath in which "sulfur water" was used. Healing effects on external application of skin diseases was attributed to this water emerging from the mountain.

Finally, the many reports of exceptional results through the application of medicinal waters caused the owner of the spring source, to conduct a scientific study in 2006. The chemical-physical examination as well as the medical balneological assessment have produced very good results. With a decision on March 14th, 2007 of the Styrian Provincial Government/Austria, the Thaddäusquelle was officially recognized as a medical resource. In 2010, the name was changed from Thaddäusquelle to AquaMedica medicinal spring.
