We are lucky to have many spas in Alsace. I don’t know if this is due to the German influence, where wellness is quite important and where there are many spas and thermal baths, but we can only be happy about it, especially since we really have spas of a very high levelThe quality of these products continues to improve. We have several establishments in the region that have won awards from the best spas in Europe and the world! Yes, that’s right! To help you make your choice, here are our favorite spa addresses in Alsace, where you can spend a few hours, a day or a weekend! We add addresses as we discover them, when we feel that they deserve their place among the best spas in Alsace.
Hotel Spa in Alsace (with Day spa)
Here are the spa hotels in Alsace to start with. You can of course stay there for a wellness stay, but these hotels also offer Day Spa packages allowing you to enjoy the spa for the day without staying at the hotel. I advise you to book these different establishments well in advance, they are very successful, especially on weekends!
You can usually take advantage of theaccess to the spa (including for example hot tubs, Jacuzzis, steam rooms, sensation showers, swimming pool, salt grotto, ice fountain, saunas, rest room and fitness room…) but also book care such as massages, facials, body treatments…
Nature Spa de La Cheneudière, one of the best spas in Alsace!
I’m starting this article with my favorite spa, the Nature Spa at Hostellerie La Cheneaudière in Colroy-la-Roche, in the Bruche Valley. This huge 2,500m2 spa has won numerous awards for the best spas in the world (including the best hotel spa in Europe) and it must be said that the Nature Spa is a real cocoon that allows you to disconnect and forget all the worries of everyday life…
Yonaguni Spa, the luxury Japanese spa in Obernai
The Yonaguni Spa, located in the Hôtel du Parc in Obernai, is an invitation to discovery and well-being. It’s also one of my favorite spas, and I’m not the only one as it has been awarded the best luxury spa in France and the best unique experience spa in the world.
Chez Julien, for a beautiful spa day in the Vosges
Chez Julien is another well known spa in Alsace! Like the Nature Spa de la Cheneaudière, it is located in the Bruche Valley, a very pleasant natural setting to enjoy a wellness break.
Source des Sens, one of the most beautiful spas in Alsace
For an exceptional moment of relaxation, here is another excellent address: the spa of the Source des Sens, located in Morsbronn-les-Bains in the north of Alsace. It is not as big as the two previous ones but just as qualitative: it is really one of the beautiful spas of the region!
Hostellerie des Châteaux in Ottrott, for a spa stay on the Wine Route
Another superb spa, located this time on the Alsace Wine Route, in the village of Ottrott (famous for its red wine, but that’s not the point!). If you like saunas, you should be won over: many original saunas and hammams await you in this beautiful spa of the Hostellerie des Châteaux.

The Domaine du Hirtz is an eco-tourism hotel residence located in Wattwiller, in the south of Alsace, 30 minutes from Mulhouse.

Special mention for the“parent-child complicity” offer, an offer specially adapted to allow you to spend a relaxing moment with your child. Nice, right?
La Clairière, for a spa weekend in the Northern Vosges
La Clairière is the spa of the hotel of the same name, located in La Petite Pierre, in the heart of the Vosges du Nord Regional Nature Park. A magnificent natural setting which is even more enjoyable since the spa has large bay windows. Even if it is not huge, it is a beautiful place for relaxation and well-being.
Spa de la Colline, a beautiful spa between Colmar and Mulhouse
Here is another address located in the south of Alsace, 30 minutes from Colmar and Mulhouse, in the pretty village of Westhalten, on the Alsace Wine Route.

The Ribeauvillé Barrière Resort is one of the most popular day spas in Alsace. Two areas await you: a balneo area and a spa area where you can book treatments and massages. A beautiful place where you will enjoy a panoramic view of the Alsatian vineyards and at a very reasonable price!
