On 25.03.1999, the Thuringian State Government awarded the city of Bad Blankenburg the rating “State Registered Medical Spring”. From the Antonius Spring bubbles natural water, enriched with sodium, calcium and chlorine, which is suitable for drinking, inhalation or spa therapy.
The remedial water supports the recovery from chronic infections of the stomach and the duodenum, inflammatory bowel disease and circulatory problems, and helps prevent osteoporosis.
Food technologists, who analysed the spring, have suggested the following dosage and use of the water:
- The water is to be drunk three times a day, before every main meal.
- The remedial waters should be warmed for sensitive patients.
- With calcium deficiency, 2.5 litres of water should be drunk each day.
- An overdose is not possible. Side effects and other consequences are not known.
The pavilion is located in the Kurpark close to the wooden Schwarza Bridge at the pedestrian crossing.
