In Breiten we use brine from Schweizerhalle in a concentration of appro. 10 % (3 % salt and mineral concentration, which is about the same as in the Mediterian Sea) for our saline spa. On the banks of the 'primeval sea' under the influence of wind and sun, in secluded parts of the ocean, the salt crystalises, slowly sets and over millions of years leaves behind large deposits of salt and minerals. The same process took millions of years ago in our region to large salt and mineral deposits that are over one hundred years of exploitation by the Swiss Rhine Salt Works in Rhyburg (Schweizerhalle). The salt left lying in the ocean at depths between 140 and 400 metres is naturally turned into brine. This fluid is pumped to the surface of the ocean and is regularly delivered in lage tanks to us in Breiten.
