European Thermal Heritage Day 2021

Last 21st October the fourth edition of the European Thermal Heritage Day (EHTD) was held online from the Christian Zais Saal (Kurhaus) in the German city of Wiesbaden. This annual event is organised since 2018 by the Scientific Committee of the European Historic Thermal Towns Association (EHTTA). After three successful editions, the ETHD 2021 opened a new series focused on Therapeutic Landscapes. In this year the topic was “Thermal Urbanism”, in 2022 it will be “Parks and Gardens”, and the following year, “Thermal Towns”.

Mario Crecente, as Vice President of the EHTTA Scientific Committee, participated in the panel of experts to present the lecture “Thermal Urbanism from Wiesbaden to Saratoga Springs”. This year is the 100th anniversary of the death of Simon Baruch, who studied the spas in Europe and designed the ‘grandest spa in the world’ at Saratoga Springs (New York). We invite you to watch this video and learn more about the relation between Saratoga Springs and the urbanism of European thermal towns.

The panel of experts also counted on the participation of Paul Simons, who talked about “Thermal Urbanism in the Great Spas of Europe” and Thomas Weichel who presented “Thermal Urbanism in Wiesbaden”. The full programme is available at this link.
