Responsible tourism: Hiking & wellness vacation in Bad Ems, Germany
This trip is all about hiking, admiring the beautiful scenery and rewarding yourself by relaxing in naturally heated thermal springs. Located in the middle of a nature park, 'Naturpark Nassau', the goal is to preserve the natural environment's flora and fauna and keep the area accessible for responsible tourism.
The walking paths are clearly marked as the routes often meander through restricted nature protection areas. This allows guests to keep to the path whilst also appreciate the nature around them. When planning the paths, different aspects of nature protection considerations were taken into account.
The spas of Bad Ems have been created with the environment in mind because the thermal baths in Bad Ems take a large part of its bath water from natural hot springs. This means the water does not have to be heated up and the usage of chlorine is also reduced to a minimum. Overall, this minimises the effect of our activity on the environment.
All accommodation offered on this trip are family-run hotels and private vacation apartments. We source all ingredients for the hotels from the local area, and we encourage all guests to buy groceries locally and make use of the plenty local restaurants. Thus, the added value stays in the region and benefits local shops, restaurants and residents. This in return helps to maintain the high quality tourism products we can offer.
The spas are an important part of life for the Bad Ems region. Not only do they have an interesting history but provide steady tourism to the region. Employees at the spa come from the local area in order to provide guests with the best information and benefit the local economy. Trips like this benefit the area in a sustainable way and keep them available to guests for future generations.
