Testament to the huge investment of more than 35 million euros that is being driven into the region, BADEPARADIES SCHWARZWALD has cemented its position as a veritable tourist hotspot with more than 700,000 annual visitors – an increase of 25 per cent in the past four years, and earning the water park the coveted visitors award from Parkscout.de as Germany’s Best Water Park 2016.
Pool. Yet while undeniably popular, the innovative water park shows no signs of resting on its laurels and its water park credentials continue to grow with the addition of more high-tech slides, including the hotly anticipated Galaxy Racer that will open in a brand new building come spring 2017 and pit four speed-hungry racers on mats against each other.
“We’re still carrying out a number of expansions,” explains Brugger, managing director and member of the board,“striving to continually improve the quality, extent and diversity of our facilities to make sure that our guests keep returning.” Despite only being six years old, the BADEPARADIES SCHWARZWALD has already expanded to include the thrilling Galaxy Schwarzwald zone, as well as the new SPA and mineral-boosting Vital
Confirming its crown as the jewel of Black Forest, the BADEPARADIES SCHWARZWALD also launches Galaxy Fun in 2017, a space dedicated to families. “The latest expansion has been a work-inprogress since Easter,” continues Brugger. “Once it’s complete there’ll be more than 5,000 square metres dedicated to the glassencased Palais Vital, our ultimate spa and wellness zone. On three floors, we’ll have several pools with exclusive poolside bars,
at least seven additional saunas of various types as well as a high-end wellness area with beauty and massage treatments to choose from.” Given the water park’s unspoilt surroundings of the Black Forest, it is fortunate that the roof terraces, floor-toceiling windows and removable sunroof on the Palm Oasis mean that the panoramic views can be enjoyed from virtually any position in the park. Brugger concludes: “The works we’re doing at the moment are because we’d naturally like to continue to meet the spiralling expectations of our guests, many of whom come regularly. We’ll soon be one of the biggest destinations of this sort in Germany, which we believe will add huge value to the region and draw even more guests.” www.badeparadies-schwarzwald.de
