Baden in northern Switzerland

A Swiss Resort Spa
Has Jewish Touch

RUTH ROVNER

Special to The Jewish News

T

he large outdoor pool
in Baden is one of the
town's most well-
known sights. In any season
— even the dead of winter —
people are in the pool, enjoy-
ing the clear blue water and
the view of the mountains in
the distance.
Many in the pool simply
relax, floating in the water.
Others do water exercises.
Those who swim take it slow-
ly; it's hard to swim vigorous-
ly in water which is 96.8
degrees Farenheit.
This is a pool of hot thermal
spring water that comes
straight from one of the 19
thermal springs in the area.
It's this pure water, with the
richest mineral content of any
water in Switzerland, that
has drawn visitors here ever
since the Romans began
bathing in Baden's thermal
springs almost 2,000 years
ago.
Today, this tranquil town in
the mountains of northern
Switzerland, just 25 minutes
by train from Zurich, is
Switzerland's most well
known spa resort. Attractions
include both indoor and out-
door thermal pools, six spa
hotels with a whole array of
facilities from saunas to
solariums, and picture-
postcard scenery; for the town
is located in the foothills of
the Jura mountains.
Switzerland's premier spa,
where the Romans once
bathed in style, has a definite
Jewish flavor. It's a favorite
vacation spot for many Israeli
Jews, particularly those who
speak German. Baden is in
the heart of the German-
speaking area of this multi-
lingual country.
There are also Jews who
come to Baden every summer
for a special ritual reunion.
They are German-born and
managed to escape the Nazi

regime just in time. They
were among the Jews who
were sheltered in Switzerland
during the war; and some
stayed right at the Verenahof
Hotel while waiting to move
to permanent homes.
Even though they've scat-
tered since then — to the U.S.,
European cities and Israel —
they return regularly to
renew their friendships in
this tranquil Swiss spa resort.

Besides the chance to meet
Jews from diverse places,
Baden offers several special
attractions for Jewish
visitors, including a gallery
that carries unusual Judaica
items, a local synagogue, and
an active Jewish community
with a proud and unusual
history.
Just a few minutes' walk
from the spa hotels is Gallery
M, which has a wide and
varied collection of paintings,
sculpture and jewelry —
almost all of it by Jewish
artists.
On display are many works
by Israeli sculptor Frank
Meisler. The sculptures,
finished in precious metals,
include menorot, ketubot
holders, candlesticks and
sculpted pieces with biblical
motifs, such as Noah's Ark
and King David. In
Switzerland, this gallery is
the exclusive representative
for Mr. Meisler, who lives and
works in Old Jaffa.
"I started with a few pieces,
but then it just grew," says
Miriam Bollag, gallery owner,
who now has over 100 Meisler
pieces. She arranged for three
exhibitions of his work, two in
Zurich, one in Geneva, and is
planning one in Baden this
year.
Besides the Meisler collec-
tion, the gallery also carries
sterling silver jewelry by
Yaacov Heller and Ben David,
both from Israel, and pain-
tings by Avri Segali and Alex-
ander Aizanstadt.
Many visitors she says, are
