In Peiden Bad, women, children and men who had rheumatic complaints, suffered from depression, loss of appetite, eczema or women's diseases and much more were cured in the past.


According to oral tradition, the healing effect of the springs was already known in the 13th century. In 1518, the springs were owned by the municipalities of Camuns and Peiden, which at that time left this and an existing bathing facility to a Caspar de Cabalzar. In 1868, a storm broke out over Graubünden and the bathing facilities were largely buried. In 1891, the brothers Barclamiu and Luzi Arpagaus converted the bathing complex into a larger hotel, which still exists today. Thanks to the helpful progaganda of the doctor and writer Aluis Tuor and the poet Alfons Tuor and the newly opened Valserstrasse in 1910, which led from Ilanz directly to Peiden-Bad, the business took a pleasing upswing. At times, the owner Josef Vinzens-Tuor also bottled mineral water and sold it to his guests or sold it via various depots to other interested parties than "Peidner Mineral and Medicinal Water" The hotel flourished until the 50s and more than 40 beds had to be prepared daily in the high season. The hotel has been run as a restaurant for the past 35 years, the agricultural soil has been worked by local farmers and the mineral water has been bubbling unused into the Glenner. On 1 January 1999, the hotel, including mineral springs and agricultural land, changed hands again. The hotel and restaurant have been closed since about 2015.

Places of magic - Cumbel/Peiden

Springs and spas

Very early on, people noticed that special healing water and clean air are healthy for body, mind and soul. The bathing and drinking cures, in combination with seven- to eight-hour hikes in the nearby forest of Peiden Bad, contributed significantly to the fact that the guests were quickly healed. People came from far away to heal themselves and regain their strength. In Peiden Bad, women, children and men were cured who had rheumatic complaints, suffered from depression, loss of appetite, eczema or women's diseases and much more.
