Of the 19 mineral-rich springs bubbling up beneath Baden, most have been channeled into private health spas. Baden's massive, riverfront public baths, which also tap into these reputedly healing artesian waters, are being transformed under an extensive renovation designed by architect Mario Botta, and are presently closed to the public.

The project was scheduled to be completed in 2017, but at time of writing the re-opening date had been put back to 2019. Check the website for updates.
