Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch spring water
Precious, fresh and pure, an elixir of life.
The vigilius mountain resort has a treasure that is probably unique. Sparkling mineral spring water bubbles directly from the mountain. This precious water from Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch flows through all the pipes, out of every tap, in every shower, every tub, in the pool as well as in the whirlpool. On the way from the col down to Bärenbad there are several abundant springs that crop up below the timberline at approx. 1,700 m above sea level. This powerful natural element energetically and profusely penetrates granite, gneiss and porphyry and cuts through to the surface. The springs have been used for farms, holiday homes and restaurant businesses up Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch for more than a hundred years. As a result, you bathe in the purest mineral water at vigilius mountain resort.
Scientific analysis has shown that the spring water from Monte San Vigilio/Vigiljoch is slightly radioactive and low in minerals. From the 1960s onwards, this precious water has been transported through kilometres of pipes down to the valley, where it is still bottled as “Meraner Mineralwasser” today. Some of the springs have a higher concentration of radioactivity, iodine and arsenic. They have been successfully employed by thermal baths and spas for therapeutic purposes since the 1930s.
