EHTTA is responsible for the European Route of Historic Thermal Towns. All members have a rich historic and cultural heritage and use their thermal mineral waters for health and well-being. EHTTA’s mission is to enhance, protect, and promote thermalism in Europe. EHTTA’s aims are to obtain recognition for the innovative and cultural qualities of European spa towns within the European Union, in order to develop a new plan for the tourist sector by encouraging cross-border tourism in the framework of “Destination Europe”. EHTTA encourages the economic development of spa towns and the safeguarding of their cultural and built heritage through exchanges of experience and good practices at the European level.
