The Old Bad Pfäfers Baths
Small Sculpture Festival
The Small Sculpture Festival during the 4th Swiss Triennial Festival of Sculpture takes place at the venerable Old Bad Pfäfers Baths. A large number of artists from around the world fascinate visitors to the Tamina Gorge with their work. Often there is a special visual charm in the reduced dimension of small sculptures.
The Old Bad Pfäfers Baths – the only conserved Baroque baths in Switzerland.
The Friends of the Bad Pfäfers Baths Association was founded in 1975 with the urgent task of developing and implementing a maintenance concept.
Today the Friends of the Bad Pfäfers Baths Association are supporting and promoting the activities of the Old Bad Pfäfers Baths both in terms of ideas and financial support. The board of this association is responsible for the implementation of cultural and social events.
The Old Bad Pfäfers Baths Foundation
The Bad Pfäfers Baths went out of business in 1969. Demolition was discussed. Then it was restored in three stages between 1983-1995. The Friends of the Bad Pfäfers Baths Association (Vereinigung der Freunde von Bad Pfäfers), the political communities of Pfäfers and Bad Ragaz, the grand hotels of Bad Ragaz and the canton of St. Gallen came together to form the Old Bad Pfäfers Baths Foundation (Stiftung Altes Bad Pfäfers) which is the current patron of this cultural heritage site.
The foundation bodies consist of the foundation board, the operations commission and the Friends of the Bad Pfäfers Baths Association.
The Old Bad Pfäfers Baths have the following operating hours: May and October daily from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., June to September daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
