Castle Bathing Area is the only designated outdoor bathing area by Lake Bled. Situated just below the magnificent castle rock, it enjoys a sunny and picturesque location.
Arnold Rikli (1823 – 1906) was a Swiss hydropath who spent an important part of his life at Bled. He was one of the first to recognise the value of water, air and sunlight for human health and has earned world fame as the founder of health tourism at Bled. The development of health tourism was further enhanced by several sources of curative water found in the lake.
