Ferdinand’s Spring

Ferdinand’s Spring is chemically a bicarbonate-sodium-sulphate-iron acid.

The spring is named after King Ferdinand, who first mentioned it in a surviving document from 1528, when he had it explored to obtain table salt.

It was the first spring to attract attention in the then uninhabited, desolate landscape of the border forests.
Chemical analysis found Galuber’s salt as the main constituent in the water, but also iodine, lithium and strontium.

Abbot Reitenberger had a classical colonnade built over the spring in 1826-27 to replace the old wooden hut. This colonnade is still a beautiful architectural monument that blends in well with the spa parks.

The Ferdinand VI spring is exclusively bottled under the name ‘Excelsior’.

The Ferdinand I spring is fully used for drinking baths, while the other Ferdinand springs are used for carbonated baths.

The composition of Ferdinand’s Spring corresponds to the Cross Spring, but it is slightly more mineralised. It has a distinctly salty taste and is slightly laxative. The effects and indication area are identical to the Cross Spring.
